Can't Add Stars or Labels Without Command Key!

I just updated to Bridge 2024 and now suddenly I can't change star ratings and color labels without having to use the command key! Very incovenient to need two hands to do this! I looked at the preferences, figuring I'd just check the box that says you don't need the command key, but its gone!!! There's no option for labeling and starring without command anymore! This needs to be fixed. How is it an improvement to make something harder to do???

Hi @DefiningImagery ,


Thank you for reaching out to us. You can set the numbers as shortcuts for labels/ratings from keyboard shortcut options


1. Open Bridge
2. Go to Edit -> Keyboard Shortcuts to open the keyboard shortcuts dialog
3. Search for the desired command like Red Label, Yellow Label, 1 Star, etc
4. In the adjacent column, named "Shortcut" click in the empty area and add the desired shortcut like
5, 6, 7
5. Save the preset and click the OK button to apply the changes

The removal of that very handy checkbook for using/not using the ctrl key when applying labels and ratings was one of the first things I noticed about this version of Bridge. My solution was to use the new feature which allows customising keys. So keys 0 to 9 can be customised to do what they used to do. This works but takes a while to perform as you have to customise ten different keys instead of unchecking one little box. I haven't discovered a quicker method. Maybe someone else has?

I love hoe they brought back the ability to bring back windows but took away the easiest labeling set up we ever had... one step forward, 8 steps back.

Or you could put the tick box back that enabled us to label WITHOUT going through all that hassle!!!  It used to be one of the highlights of using bridge, now bridge is awkward... listen to your customers!!!

Thank you for the solution but ask yourself as Bridge Team the following question: are we enhancing the user experience in Bridge or do we make it a hog people run away from?

I was not happy when I saw this was removed, but I do have to say keyboard shortcuts is a better solution in the long run

Hi @Stephen36714666wj6e, overall, this provides more control and efficiency when working with Bridge. The specific issue around Ratings and Labels is a glitch in the continuum. In a perfect world, there would have been the ability to have a one-button control on that but it didn't happen (and last I checked, we are not in a perfect world).

 

As an example of things that can be improved, I set Command-u to un-lable any image. I can unrate any image with zero, but there was nothing for unlableing. Now, I have it. I have other improvements, but that's just a quick one.

Oh, one other quick thing: subsequent to this question being put in a forum, I created a video for folks who need a visual assistance.

I've been wrestling with the same thing. I understand that we can simply configure the Keyboard Shortcuts for labels and ratings, that's fine.

 

But how do I navigate to an image using its numeric file name? 

eg. I would have 1000 photos. I want to label IMG.0753 with a RED label. I used to simply type in "0753" and that image would be selected, I then pressed cmd/6 and it would be done. Not anymore, how would this workflow happen now?

I would use  [Ctrl/Cmd +F] to Find the file,

2023-12-07 09_36_29-Find.png

Select image Then [Ctrl/Cmd + Number 1-5] to 'Star rate' the image. (Or  [Number 1-5] for KB shortcuts that are re-assigned.)

 

Regards. My System: Lightroom-Classic 13.4, Photoshop 25.9.1, ACR 16.4, Lightroom 7.4, Lr-iOS 9.0.1, Bridge 14.1.1, Windows-11.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear. How to I navigate to any image quickly using the image name? If the image name consists of only numbers, by typing in those numbers it rates the image instead of highlighting the specific image I want to see. I work with bik folders and need to select numerous photos based on their image names(number).

If you want to permanently use 'command key' when you are rating and labelling, you should set it once from the 'Keyboard customization dilaog' via the Bridge Preferences.

I may feel counter-intuitive, but I assume that this was needed because switching the modifier key on/off will conflict with any custom keyboard shortcuts that you may have set.

Have you tried using Keyboard shortcut customization dialog. This will be a one time operation and then you are good.
