I was able to talk to a couple Tech people from Adobe about the scrolling issues. at least the ones that I have, which is in the Folders Pain using a Magic Mouse.
They are aware of my issue now... but don't seem to understand why or how it's happening. They were genuinely interested in trying to fix it, but I feel they may have dropped it again in favour of other issues?
Anyhow, I highly recommend you pull up a chat window with them. They are responsive now, and you get disconnected, they might even call you (if they have your number).
I have a few threads featuring how the scrolling hasn't worked at all for YEARS.
Interestingly enough, eps files—which are the base format for pdf and illustrator files (correct me if I am wrong)—have useful METADATA... Bridge is able to share DPI and converts that info into both IN and CM.
If thats the case, then perhaps this removed data could be put back... or not blocked?
I'm looking at a print ad file right now and it's dimensions are 378 x 594.
What does that even mean?
Even if i was a savant, and could divide these numbers by the arbitrary 72 dpi/ppi that still doesn't tell me if that's the crop size or bleed size.
Not only that, but the Preview image is HALF that! Why is a preview image for an ad that's 5" x 8" on my screen only 1.75" x 2.75" it's almost useless.
Launch Bridge → Preferences→ File Type Associations → select the asset type and choose the default program you would like to associate.
same thing happening for 2019 to 2020 i think
thank you Seth,
1. the SCROLLING Bug?
2. NEED MORE INFO reporting system??
Still nothing from adobe eh?
I have so many files that are .ai and pdf, and the previews are tiny, I hit space bar all the time thinking i'll get a better look at the VECTOR data, but alas, a small pop up of the same preview shows up. Not so helpful.
I'd Love to see an option that perhaps recognizes images below a certain resolution can be doubled? Not that vector couldn't be ANY size. just offering an option should they have a hurdle we not thinking of.
Manfred, I agree.
DPI would also be a useful tool bit of information.
What's amazing is there are 11 categories in the metadata, possibly 100 different tags.
The only ones that 99% of us use are the ones inside File Properties.
This is Adobe's domain, why can't they just make a new Adobe Category. This should be editable so that we can pick and choose what bits of info is important to us. and to display only the info we want for the program file that is selected.
Thank you for pointing this out. We will get this updated
Adobe has decided to spread out feedback on their products to as many forums as possible. 1-3 per product.
This way it keeps their users lost. We stop caring and give up suggesting way to improve their products.
I mean wouldn't you hate hearing from your customers how you could do a better job?
and since they only have 1 or 2 people that can check each forum a few times a week, waiting for a response just discourages us even further.
For some, they just stop caring... others. get pissed off. I'm becoming the latter.
I haven't heard back from you. I replied to your email, but haven't had a response.
Can you please let me know in which panel you are facing this issue.
@Abhishek_Seth Is this forum dead?
Whats happening here?
Baby steps Luke, Baby steps.
they are aware of it now! ADMIN - Abhishek Seth has contacted me to look into this further.
I sent them the video of what scrolling looks like, though it's not the best example of how bad it really is, it's certainly enough for them to see how poorly it is programmed.
Hopefully this problem will soon be a thing of the past.
How does one post a video? I just took one for you but it looks like uservoice doesn't have any options
I'm not sure what you mean. I attached screen shots of the Folders Panel.
NOTE the _BAND folder - you'll see how much 1 tick with the mouse moves it.
that sounds even worse than what most Mac users are experiencing with Bridge. you might want to post a video of that if you can.
use Quicktime, you can screen capture any given space on the screen you want.
This is as designed for Bridge CC 2019.
Please post it as a feature request
This is very strange. While I don't begin to claim I know much about IT, it might have a little to server side commands or there might be a Bug in the Cut Command right now and their programmers have done us a favour by turning it off until they fix it.
Either way, they should have "hidden" the cut command from the edit menu if that was it is the latter.
What would be nice though is an explanation.
What is different about MOVE To versus Cut and Paste?
How is this "better"
I'm sure some of us can report how it's worse, but at least 1 person feels that this is a feature, so maybe there is something we are missing.
haha, oh the good old days where you had to clean out the inside of your grimy mouse.
If it helps the Adobe team any, i can tell you the jumping started roughly around the first Bridge CC. the MM used to work fine in ALL CS versions.
When Adobe made the change scrolling 1 tick = roughly 13 folders.
With Bridge 2019 scrolling 1 tick = roughly 7 folders.
I'm guessing this is a case of someone programming in a doubling of the sensitivity. (or Halving)
that should give your programers something to search for.
I use Star ratings for a collection of photos. Nothing else. So why is it Always on now?
True, this is not a bug. it's a mistake. But one that can easily be fixed in a .1 update.
We have made this change for better readability.
In case you wish to get this changed, please post it as a feature request.
That's a great idea. there should be two sliders, for size and spacing. Start that Feature request and I'll +1.
