More of an annoying inconsistancy than anything, but on Windows, Adobe Bridge 2023 does not display transparency in the thumbnails of CMYK PSD (and perhaps others) files, whereas it does in RGB colourspace versions of those files (See screenshot), with the same alpha channels/transparency. This makes it an extra hassle to clarify whether CMYK versions of specific files have alpha channels or not.
I had this issue as well. However, when I upgraded to Adobe Bridge 22.214.171.124, now none show the transparency. So it got worse for me. Oh well. I'm currently on a Windows machine, but my work Mac displayed the same issues. It didn't matter if it was PSDs or AIs...
Adobe Bridge is always treated like Adobe's unwanted child.
I still see the same behaviour in Abobe Bridge V14 on Windows (so I CAN see alphas on RGB PSD files). I notice in Bridge 14 that don't see tranparency previews on Illustrator files in either CMYK or RGB colour spaces, but do on EPS files in either space.
Unrelated, but Adobe Bridge Secondary Windows are the most begrudging and half-hearted back-tracking on their single-window model, after users widely rejected it.
