Bridge and Apple iCloud drive

Is anyone using the new iCloud drive? I started only recently and found it working quite well for my tasks. But unfortunately it does not show up in the Bridge, which makes it a bit impractical once you have created a few folders. Especially, when you, like me, use the bridge all the time. So I would appreciate if anyone has any information if this is kind of an issue that is already discussed or that might be changed in the future. Or is there a way to solve it? And last but not least, is it an Apple issue or an Adobe one?

You can find iCloud drive here:

/Users/your name/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/

or

Hi, Yes i too cannot see iCloud or find a natural path to it in iOS and it is a major nuisance. As it is not easy to navigate to without Finder I'd imagine Apple are restricting access. I am going to see if it is hidden in library, but if you solve this post it too!! ;-(

I see you have also posted this in German ! Was hopeful that was an answer and translated it only to see it was you asking! Never mind...

Thanks Karfo. I had to go to View->Show Hidden Files to see Library incidentally, but then it was easy to add to my favourites once I had found it once. Great stuff. Thanks again.

May be it will added automatically by Adobe in a future update - couldn't be that hard to do?

Thank you so MUCH, I was SOOOO frustrated that I couldn't see any Icloud folders in Bridge, I kept having to drag each folder into bridge icon to view, but even then i could navigate around the other icloud folders.

Thanks again

I uploaded all my photos directly to my iCloud drive as I don't use  Apples Photo app. In Bridge I cannot find the iCloud drive, even though I asked to show the hidden files. I can find Library > Mobile Documents but I can't find iCloud.

Yeah, well..... to find the icloud drive in the finder was not the problem, it was there from the beginning. But I would like to have it in Adobe Bridge and there, the Library folder does not appear (at least not in my case) I have it in finder, so it is not hidden, but not in Bridge.

Hi! This is how to see the folders in your ICloud Drive with Bridge.

Go to your user folder (Your home folder), select it, then from the top menu choose View > Show hidden files.

This should let you see the library folder.

To find the iCloud Drive folder:

Library > Mobile Documents > iCloud Drive

To make it easier to find when you open bridge add the iCloud Drive to favorites

In Bridge go to

File > add to favorites.

I hope this helps!

Resurrecting this string. I am on Premiere on my home computer. I can open the iCloud drive, and see click on my project file. When I open it, it can't resolve the path for the media. In the file menu, I click on my name and Library shows up as a folder on the right, but it will not open. And nowhere in the file menu does iCloud appear anywhere. From the finder I can see all my media files and open them. I can open the Premiere Project file. But I can't put the two together. My work computer they are fine.

Any help appreciated.

Karfo's answer worked for me:

 

You can find iCloud drive here:

 

/Users/your name/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/

 

However, I made error with transporting folder to Favourites and now my .ai files are .name.ai.icloud.  Grrrh. 😞
