Can someone tell me whats going on with Adobe bridge now? Have they fire all the good programmers and hire a bunch of kids???

The program are so full in bugs, and everytime there are a new update, new useless things come and other functions i use daily in my workflow dissapear. Its so frustrating...

When you ask the support, they blame my computer or setup.

IF there was another program i could use, i will stop using Adobe....I actually pay for this, but who cares.

I see other people here struggle with same problems as i do. And its so clearly that there has been a big change in the stab. They have moved from a serious platform to a kindergarden for young hiptsters who want to show off i feel...

I feel your pain. "Bridge update" often means "new version with different problems with things that used to work."

Swati,

Perhaps you could start with the entire problematic universe surrounding the feature View>Show Items from subfolders.  This is a feature that was severely crippled with the introduction of Br 13 and hasn’t significantly improved since that time. In some ways it is actually worse in 14 than it was in 13.

 

The fall-off in scroll speed, and the associated hesitant performance, (sticky, jumpy behavior), is more than enough to become a deal-breaker for those who remain loyal to Br 12.  In Br 12, scrolling is smooth and quick when browsing large numbers of assets in hierarchical folder structures displayed in a content panel. This is an activity that is common in high volume production studios and not something that should have been compromised so severely for the past two years of the Br 13/14 era.

 

Taking away the arrow keys on the vertical scroll bars only compounded the waste of time inflicted on customers.  Now, instead of being able to scroll quickly, page-by-page or line-by-line using only a mouse has become a problematic mess that is a constant annoyance. Being forced to waste time and attention moving back and forth between the mouse and the keyboard just to maintain a proper, efficient, and speedy grid-enforced scroll is an insult to your customers who have enjoyed this smooth and seamless performance for more than 15 years.

 

You might also look into the absurd crashing of Br every time one attempts to use View>Show Items from Subfolders when the path bar is not present in a customer designed workspace.  That is a recent development that trashes custom workspaces designed to eliminate the uselessly bloated vertical space the new Path Bar now wastes in the current configuration.  This bug has now made it into a released version of the application twice. That is beyond absurd. For amost two years there have been enough existing bugs to keep you busy playing Wack-A-Mole.  Why introduce new ones?

 

Finally, for Adobe to decide to allow docking of vertically designed feature panels to the horizontally designed pathbar location is a galactically stupid idea that serves no legitimate purpose that I can imagine.  Please enlighten us about why this is a good idea and I’ll listen.  Otherwise get rid of it.  Currently it is just another opportunity for a customer to make an accidental mistake when dragging feature panels around and then waste additional time trying to figure out how to un-do it.

 

Do things once, efficiently.

Do things automatically whenever possible.

I miss those arrow keys on the scroll bars as well.  Does anyone know why they were removed?  I hate not being able to navigate through content without having to constantly go back and forth between the mouse and the keyboard.

Stibility problems also for me. its a requirement that i work of our NAS so that we have version control even thow we rename files. its in the event of acidental deletion or system crashes we do not loose files. but bridge is slow or locks up on NAS folders. I also get blamed for my setup. and was pushed to use adobe cloud services. i again spesified i must work with the NAS system and not online or with external systems. for small projects its great but any time i have one that is more than 1gb in size it no longer work in adobe cloud because of how slow it is on the network.

What i have requested for stability is the loading order of oporation and stability checks.
when navagating folders than documents should load first this would help for speed. than the document meta data. so the filter menu will work and than and only than start thumbnails. bring back the thumbnail export function to the folder so that when it looks at the folder it can just load the old thumbnails first. and if it needs to update its the last to load. also allow us to control the GPU support on thumbnails so that it will not hold us up and we can set a limit to somthing like 20% available use. also add a thumbnail pause button to the bottom so that we can skip that so we can navigate and use the filter and search.

For me, Bridge 2018 (verison 8) was the last "good" version of Bridge. Since the 2019 user interface overhaul, it's been a constant struggle of usability decreases, bugs, and frustrating losses of once useful behaviors.

Same for me.  Since 2018, it has been all downhill for Bridge.  Did they offshore their programmers then?
