Bridge New Content Window Replacing “New Window” is a Bug not a Feature

The ability to have separate Bridge instances is crucial not only to my workflow, but the workflow every imaging production professional. I know, this has been brought up before. The issue is not resolved until we reclaim the ablilty to:

 

  1. Apply different filters to multiple sets of images and have those controls independently and simultaneously available. Like you can when running multiple instances of Bridge.
  2. Have those differently filterable sets available with full controls in separate spaces / windows sets. Like you can when running multiple instances of Bridge. I have multiple clients, and I like to keep each one's notes and assets in their own space. IMO, it's one of the reasons why spaces / window sets exist.
  3. Quilckly switch between sets of images with shortcut keys. Like you can when running multiple instances of Bridge.
  4. Do this natively on Apple Silicon running Ventura.

 

I understand that multiple content panels was a popular request. Perhaps those of us who rely on Adobe tools to make e-commerce happen aren't very popular. Nonetheless, the giant misstep of removing "New Window" functionality has been decried practically since the day Bridge 13.0 was released. Please tell me that sometime in the very near future we will have this functionality back. Rosetta will not be around forever.

Hi, thank you for the description of your workflow and the missing items in the current version, and doing this with a respectful tone!

The thing I personally miss sorely is the ability to see and copy/paste easily and simultaneously the metadata from two images/sets of images. This is the tip of the iceberg, indeed. I get your point about filtering.

When you speak of sets of images and shortcuts, was it Ctrl+Tab?

 

What I would LOVE to get would be Full Screen View in one monitor, and being able to edit metadata on the other screen. Useful when reading a small element on the FSV, and inputing that info in the relevant metadata. the zoom tool in the preview pane is sometimes not enough.

Apologies for the delayed response. I've been super busy, and I guess I'm not getting notifications about replies.

I'm mixing things up a bit here I think... you cannot FSV Bridge on Mac, but what you can do with previous versions is run separate instances in multiple "desktops". I have both Mac and Windows workstations in my studio, and on each we use multiple desktop enviroments. Usually one per client. In early 2020 I started using a Windows machine as my primary workstation, waiting for Apple Silicon to mature. I have a like/hate realtionship with it. (Would never say I love it, haha!) I honestly wish more apps allowed multiple instances like Bridge used to do. At first I disliked how Outlook on Windows would open a new instance in seprate desktop environments, but now I find it to be crucial. In one desktop environment/windowset I can have Outlook open to emails from one specific client, with with independent Bridge window(s). There can be only one instance of Photoshop open, which is fine as I'm always only actually working on one client's images at a time. If only Acrobat and Slack would allow multiple instances... Anyway, yes - alt+tab on windows to cycle to different instances in the current desktop environment on Windows (though it does cycle through ALL open apps within the current desktop environment) and command+tilde to cycle between instances on MacOS (though one instance must be in focus to start.)
