Bug: File Renaming isn't counted as Modification

  • I edit pixel data of files on Monday
  • On Tuesday, I batch rename these files with Bridge


Using filters on Tuesday and sorting by modified date, I don't see what I did to the files on that day – they still show Monday as the modification date.

Hey, Polyxo. Sorry for the trouble. I'll need more details to help you figure this out. 

 

Please share these details to help you. 

What version of Bridge and operating system are you using?

Would you mind sharing a video recording of what exactly is happening?

What is the file type/format? 

Where are you saving these files? 

 

Thanks! 

Shivani

Hi Shivani @sprinklr-integration-user 

this is the latest Bridge Beta 14.1.1.271 version on Windows 10. The file format in this case was PSD, but you should see the same for every file format.
 
It's not possible to capture a video. It had to run for many hours to demonstrate the problem. However, it is effortless to replicate what I see. Just follow the steps in my first post.
 
As @Conrad C pointed out (thanks!), it could be, that you consider this behaviour intended – to act in line with operating systems. I just saw that Windows also acts this way. So, if your goal is to stick closely to OS conventions, you could close this ticket.

In our use case, naming images is a vital editing step, as images are published to the web and are intended to rank in organic search. You can imagine naming to be as vital for us, as keyword-assignment for typical photographers work. 
 
To track progress, it would be helpful to see if these metadata-level modifications change the editing date as well. This would reflect the reality, since metadata editing involves changing data.

This might not be considered a bug, because at least on macOS (if you are using Windows, test this on the Windows Explorer desktop) it works exactly the same way: A file name edit does not count as a file modification, so the modification date does not change.

 

The way that OSs think about it, a modification is a change to a file’s contents. The filename is not considered contents. In this case, contents are the pixels or layers, which did not change, so a filename change does not change the modification date.

 

So if you did the same thing outside of Bridge, renaming files in a folder on the computer desktop, you will probably find that the same thing happens, the modification date does not change. I am not sure if you can find an application that will register a modification date change because of a filename edit, but if you can find an application that does that, post it here because I’d be surprised if any do.
