  1. Output Module - Backslash in header / footer skip some characters

    In the Output Manager in Bridge 2018 and 2019 we can't use a Blackslash in Header and Footer. When i copy a path into Header or Footer it will show correct in the Preview. But when i export the pdf letters are missing.

    "\1\2\3\4\5\" saves as "\2\4\"

    Win 10 64bit / Bridge 9.0.3.279 x64

  5. 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.

  6. Bridge opens the wrong program

    Just updated Bridge. When I double click a file it tries to open everything in After Effects. I've checked the file type associations and everything appears correct. Opening and closing Bridge doesn't correct the problem nor does resetting the associations.

  7. Cannot drag files from filename, can only drag from icon - Windows 10 version 1809 + Bridge CC 9.0.3.279

    I cannot drag files from the filename to an application in windows 10 when viewing files in the "view content as details" or in the "view content as list" viewing modes.

    Its a lot easier to have my files laid out so I can see the filename then quickly drag and drop to the application. Bridge does this easily. Bridge is a great alternative for me to Windows File Explorer.

    Unfortunately, it looks like the UI developers missed the part where users can drag from the filename and the icon itself to an application.

    Oops!

    Hope to see it on…

  8. Installed brushes from Kyle and they disappear every time I do an upgrade

    Every time I update, my installed brushes disappear. Brushes that download with PS don't disappear.
    Now, with the latest update not only the brushes disappeared, but now the folder for downloaded images changed from my custom folder to download into the "pictures" folder/file for windows.
    Really want to know why this is happening and how to change these glitches ....

  10. Time format ver. Ver 9.0.3.279x64

    When editing "ursprungligt datum och tid" (original date and time) the time format is not in correspondance with the regional settings in the control panel. in ver. 9.0.3.279x64 installed on computer OP. In the enclosed file you can compare with Ver 8.0.0.262x64 installed on computer FUJ935 where the field can be edited directly in the correct date format. It seemes like the improvement on this field to make it possible to make other adjustments has caused a bug

  11. Bridge Crashing or Becomes Unresponsive

    I posted a while back when the new 2018/2019 Bridge came out in November. It was full of bugs for us from slow loading to crashing, etc. Now although the load seems to have picked up speed, I'm getting random crashes. We avoid Lightroom as it doesn't fit our Journalistic workflow, but Bridge isn't helping matters when we are trying to sort, tag and rename and it locks up.

    Lenovo i5 6th gen desktop

  12. Spacing between folders

    There is too much space between folders in the updated 2019 version of Bridge, which is just wasted space. It needs to be more compact - it just creates the need to scroll more as less is visible.

    NOT A BUG  ·  Abhishek Seth responded

    Dear User,

    We have made this change for better readability.

    In case you wish to get this changed, please post it as a feature request.

  13. crashes when deleting rejected items

    Adobe Bridge version 9.1.0.338 repeatedly crashes when I instruct it to delete all the items displayed. Specifically each JPEG is stacked with the corresponding RAW (using a script), I then mark some as 'Rejected', I then 'Show Rejected Items Only', select all of these (via control A), then right click/delete (to Recycle Bin). The crash occurs during the progress bar of the delete operation. On re-launching Bridge I need to relocate the working folder, however I find that Bridge had managed to successfully delete all of the marked items.
    I have returned the crash reports to Adobe.

  16. returning to bridge after ACR, 2 images are selected

    after finishing editing and returning to the folder, I have the edited and the next image selected, rather than just the one i had just worked on. Clicking on the edited image doesn't work, you have to click a different image, then return to that one.

  17. 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?!

  19. Preview Panel Scale for .AI files

    Adobe Bridge 9.1.0.338
    Mac OS 10.14.5 (iMacPro)

    In previous versions of Bridge, I could preview many different files (such as JPEGs or PNGs, Illustrator, PDFs etc) and these would fill the screen space available within my Preview Panel.

    All bridge shows (iMac Pro) are small thumbnails (not large previews).
    Is there a way to change this / or scale the preview panel output?

    Thanks!

  20. Bridge does not work without sign-on to Adobe account

    That's quite frustrating that for the Bridge to work one needs to sign-on to Adobe account and the application quits if you don't. It makes it quite useless to be frank. There is no other application that does that. Is it to discourage from using the Bridge?
