The latest version of Bridge is not able to preview any psd (psdt) files.

Is this a bug or do I have to activate the preview in the settings?

What a bummer. I have hundreds of psdt files which I can´t preview. There is no other way round than open every single file in Photoshop in hope to find the right one? No way

See if Directory OPUS will open them.

Get a trail version.

This question came up in 2018.

A FR was supposedly made, but looks like it was never implemented.

Hi Jessicaw,

 

What is your OS?

 

I just tried this on my Mac (Mojave OS) and the thumbnail shows up just fine

Change the extension to .PSD and purge cache, Bridge will show the thumbnail preview. Change it back and again purge cache, no preview. This is presumably a hard-coded limitation.
