A file's location

Is there a panel or setting that will show a file's physical path location when clicked on.
I've examined all of the panels and have checked settings.
Scenario: While viewing hundreds of files (show items from subfolders), when I click on a file obviously there is a ton of info about the selected file. But I would like to know exactly (the path) to where that file is located. 

IS there a setting or particular panel, workspace or view that would show this?

You can use the script in the following topic, which does correctly copy the path to the clipboard if you are viewing sub-folders:

Click the path bar at the top to see the path of the files in the content panel. You can copy and paste this path.

Unfortunatley, this isn't so useful if you have selected "Show Items From Subfolders" because it only shows the path of the parent folder.

Greg is correct, there is no way to show the path if you are showing items from subfolders. 

 

BTW, If you do not see the Pathbar, go to Windows (menu) -> Pathbar (toward the bottom). Very handy tool.

Thank you..
This worked perfectly. Luckily I do alot of web development, was able to drop the snippet into VSCode delete the +"|clip" portion and it worked perfectly.

Hopefully you see this.. but are there any repositories anywhere that have other useful quality of life code snippets for Bridge or Photoshop that you are aware of?

There some very useful scripts in these two collections. Keep in mind that each time there is a Bridge update, some scripting things change (bugs are introduced) so some of the older scripts might not work perfectly. Still, they proved many fundamental functions.

You can download the Bridge SDK at:

  • "Bridge 2023 JavaScript Reference.pdf" has information about JavaScript objects, properties, and functions
  • "Bridge 2023 JavaScript Guide.pdf" has information on JavaScript UI customization

@Sydney G 

 

The links posted by @gregreser are the only ones that I recall for Bridge script repositories, apart from the scripts found in the forum or over at:

 

https://www.ps-scripts.com/viewforum.php?f=72

 

There are thousands of scripts for Photoshop, Bridge and other Adobe apps, but they are generally written by forum volunteers (enthusiasts, hobbyists etc) and are offered as solutions to forum requests, wishes, complaints etc.
