  2. Apple M1 Bad Performance updating file names and Metadata on SMB share

    Bridge 2021 11.0.0.83
    Hi, first of all, in general I love Bridge, providing all I need for Photo Management!
    I observed the following performance issues when updating my photos stored on a NAS (SMB access).
    Batch or Mass updates of Filenames or Metadata (Keywords) is extremely slow (even for SMB access).
    I am using Bridge on my Apple Silicon M1 MacBook Pro.
    When Batch renaming 150 files it took >15min before I 'killed' Bridge manually. It was using 1 core at 100% and took ages to complete the update. It might be related to updating the Cache DB, because the…

  3. Audio preview stopped working properly in Bridge 2021

    Used previous versions of Bridge without ever experiencing this particular problem, but with the new installation of the 2021 version this has become a problem.

    I use Bridge to audition audio file for projects, as I have a decent SFX library. I click an audio file, it plays, I move on. Nice and simple workflow.

    However, in 2021, when I click a file, Bridge will play 2-5 seconds of it, then stop. If I move off the file and back again, it will usually play the whole file as long as it is less than 30 seconds long. Some times…

  4. slow bridge

    Hi I had a problem for months with bridge taking hours to move itself. But yesterday I found something I could do about it. It worked straight away. Here goes. Read first.
    Go to Apple on top left > shut down. Turn Mac on. Immediately press option > command > P and R keys all together at the same time, before screen appears, keep pressing until Mac restarts. Release keys.

  6. Additional Window won't open

    Just updated to 10.1.1.166, the command + N doesn't bring up a new window. When I go to file and try, it does not work. Files on a shared server do not show the changes made from another computer in the new updated Bridge.

  7. Horrible thumbnail/preview performance, constant 100% CPU usage and freeze-ups

    So for the last several months, Bridge CC has had terrible performance, with preview/thumbnail generation taking much longer than it ever did in the past, using 100% of CPU resources while doing so, constantly locking up and even locking up overall system function, even with Bridge.exe set to low priority.

    This happens on both systems I use (an i7-4790/24GB/GTX 980 desktop, and a i7-4712/16GB/Quadro K1100M laptop). Both are using SSD for storage.

    I have:

    Cleared bridge cache.

    Added dedicated bridge cache SSD to desktop system (no other use)

    Updated all CC software to newest versions as available

    Done clean installations…

  8. video halting when playing

    When previewing a video clip, it's very choppy and slow at times.

    A single video (and every video I've attempted so far) will plays like 3 seconds without issue, then starts choppy and slow, then plays good again, then choppy/slow again. The sound stays fine and it catches up to it without issue but this is annoying.

  10. Bridge not deleting files from my desktop DropBox folder. Error message appears. Impeding workflow.

    Bridge v 10.0.2.131 in Mac OS Catalina is not deleting files from my desktop DropBox folder. Error message appears. This is impeding workflow and was never an issue on previous versions.

  11. How about not forgetting to answer something useful to requesters?

    We are several people to have obviously the same issue.
    Please go and see this thread that is unanswered since @Hemant answered very stupidly to it.

    https://adobebridge.uservoice.com/forums/905377-report-bugs/suggestions/36889318-bridge-has-encountered-a-problem-with-the-display#comments

    Please read CAREFULLY about the reported issue, and then please read carefully about other people's comments on this reported issue.
    And PLEASE, believe what people tell you in these.
    The issue does come from Bridge and not from Drivers or anything else from the client, it is obvious.

    Please, pleaaaase, PLEASE do it

  12. Downloader sort order

    Others have posted similar but to be clear- in the Downloader, why does it sort by most recent day- early to late, previous day- early to late, etc... with no option to change (that I can figure out)? This means if I take 2 photos today and 2 tomorrow and then import them and use sequence number they will be numbered 3, 4, 1, 2 even when their actual chronology is 1, 2, 3, 4. This makes no sense and sequence # might as well be eliminated as a naming option since it's only the sequence within a given day.…

  13. Bridge keeps closing on me

    Working in Windows, and opening Bridge as a standalone. Every time I try and open an image, the App closes on me.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled the App, and changed my password, and it still keeps happening.

  14. 4K Monitor performance extremely slow

    10.14.4 on 12 core Mac Pro with 48 GB RAM and M.2 HD. 4K monitor and 2K monitor connected to Radeon RX 580 8 GB. Bridge running on 2K monitor behaves as expected. Bridge window moved to 4K monitor and not rebooting Bridge is stunningly slow., taking moments to select after clicking a thumbnail, and scrolling is unbearable.

  15. Serious LAG when previewing photos at 100%

    Hello, I'm using version 9.1.0.338 of Adobe Bridge. Recently it started acting up when zooming and navigating on photos at 100% zoom. I'm using the latest version of Windows 10 Home, version 1903, installed on 8/15/2019, OS build 18362.295

    I haven't changed anything on my computer (no new software or hardware) and I'm using the same RAW and JPG files on Adobe Bridge, but now, when I zoom at 100% pressing the space bar on the Filmstrip view, there's a lot of lag when zooming and when navigating around photos at 100%. It wasn't like this a couple of weeks…

  16. Bridge cache generation is blocking work

    Cache generation has always been a numer one issue for me in Bridge. It's performance, its inability to fully utilize system cores. Its contant rebiulding and losing of already build 100% previews.
    Now on top on that you made cache generation modal?!

    So until now I was able to run 2 hour generation in background and keep working in aleady generated folders.
    Now you force me to sit idle and wait for 2 hours?
    Whose idea was that?!

  18. Bridge fails to register star changes while busy making previews over network

    Bridge fails to register star changes while busy making previews over network. Sometimes command + 1-5 works, most times not while bridge is busy doing other things in the background. I know it is not a network read/write issue, as it worked alright for a time, and nothing else has changed.

  19. Adobe Bridge CC Photo downloader doesn't add numbers properly

    Currently running Adobe Bridge CC 9.0.2.219 on a MBP15 Mid 2012. I recently tried using Photo downloader and although it will get the file dates sorted so the images import in the right order, it won't add any sequential file numbering. So instead of file name example1, becomes example320. It doesn't seem to want to remember the numbering sequence setting at all. Please solve this, as it defeats the point of importing through bridge at all. If the import function isn't solid, nobody will use the software.
