  1. Thumbnails stop displaying in order of Date Created when rated or labeled

    This is a bug.

    Since upgrading to version 10.0.3.138, there's been an issue with the display of thumbnails when they're sorted by Date Created: thumbnails will change position as soon as I rate and/or label them. If I undo the rating/label, they stay in the wrong order. Even if I change the sort method and then go back to Date Created, they stay in the wrong order. Only if I close Bridge and reopen it will they go back to the correct sort order.

    This gets tedious, especially when I have multiple windows open for different folders. Hopefully this bug…

  2. Bridge 2019 Photo Downloader doesn't remember previous settings

    The new Photo Downloader always comes up in Standard Dialog, even though I previously closed it in Advanced. It always defaults to my Pictures folder, even though I chose a different folder for previous download. It always defaults to Basic Metadata, even though I chose something different on previous use.

  3. Bridge Showing Mass Duplicate Files

    Since the new 2020 Bridge update, occasionally a folder will show nothing but duplicates of a random file rather than the actual contents of the folder. Screenshots attached.

  4. macOS Issues in Bridge 2020 10.0.1 on 10.15.2 Catalina

    I am running Mac OS Catalina 10.15.2 on a 2018 Mac Mini with the Intel UHD Graphics 630 iGPU.

    Please see the attached screenshot.

    1) Content Panel Labels are all left-aligned instead of centered
    2) Thumbnails are low-quality, as you can see they seem to be 1 bit dithered images. This problem seems to go back to at least CC 2018 on Macs with embedded GPU at least.
    3) Bridge seems to ignore embedded thumbnails regardless of the option setting so you can't even override with PS-generated thumbs.
    4) The Preview is also poor quality unless I force Software Rendering…

  7. Truncates file names

    When running an action to resize a .tif and convert it to .jpg filenames are truncated!

    Example 29754.04-29763.37.tif is renamed to 29754.04-29763.jpg

    I've been using photoshop for decades and have NEVER had this problem.
    Please fix asap

  9. File name under Preview panel is truncated

    The file name under the preview panel is truncated. Longer file names, such as LongFileName_00001.jpg appear as "LongF....001.jpg."

    There is plenty of space there, and (surprise) Bridge 2018 didn't have this problem.

  11. Video Move/Copy fails in Bridge 2020

    If a video is selected (last in a move block or selected for copy), the move/copy fails because the video is open in the DyanmicLinkMediaServer.exe (error discovered in File Explorer). Apparently, the file is opened in the media server used to sort of play the file (it is a poor video player).

    The move/copy fails and must be done with file explorer externally. I don't recall encountering the issues with previous versions, but you must have the video file selected for it to manifest--the last in a selection or individually.

    Also, the media player does not support HEVC Main or…

  16. Very low resolution thumbnails for InDesign documents, Illustrator and pdfs files

    The thumbnails of InDesign documents, Illustrator files and pdfs have very low resolution! So the problem rises in files with few centimeters width and height.

  17. Color Management in Bridge is not right

    Bridge v.10.0.1.126 do not properly color manage its preview files. I use a Eizo wide gamut color calibrated display. I typically use either Adobe RGB (1998) and sRGB color space in my photographs. To prove the wrong CM, I start in Photoshop with a AdobeRGB image, save it in jpg 8bit AdobeRGB. Second step, I convert in sRGB color space and save a second jpeg, 8bit, sRGB. If you display the two images in Photoshop, you can see the differences, but when you display the two images in Bridge, you see them the same colors (that is wrong) and realize…

  18. cache update issue

    Bridge 2020: I save 2 copies of post-processed photos, 1 psd which preserves all the edits and, in a different folder, one jpg. Often, I re-edit a psd to adjust one of the effects, save it (over-writing the previous psd), and then save a new jpg (over-writing the previous jpg in the jpg folder). Almost 99% of the time, Bridge does not update the thumbnail and the preview of the jpg unless I purge the cache for the selected jpg.

    This problem occurs no matter how many photos (50-2500) are present in the psd or the jpg folders.

    System =…

  19. Flickering preview panel

    I'm finding the preview panel in Bridge running on 10.14.6 is flickering – the background flickers between dark grey and a light grey. It also switches when I click onto the windo to mae it active, but it flickers in the background too.

  20. Camera Raw does not come up from Bridge.

    Bridge version 10.0.1.126 Does not bring up camera raw. My version before this I could use Camera raw even if not a raw photo.
