In Bridge 2023 import from device is missing. It was very fast and always worked. on a iMac M1 the photo downloader is very sluggish and crashes often weather import from memory card or straight from camera. Is there any workaround this?

Import from Device is a Mac-only feature that uses the built-in Image Capture app. You can use that without Bridge.

I am having the same issue. The File>Import from Device is the only feature I used in Bridge and it's missing now. The Photo Downloader is a joke. It's slow, doesn't show the video thumbnails and organizes my photos in buckets that I don't want. Where is the import feature? It was WAY better. It worked fast and simply and I could see all my thumbnails. 

What was the point of removing it? Now I have to find an entirely new way of importing content from my phone. I really hate it when adobe does this kind of crap. They delete a feature and it screws up my whole workflow.  

Why are you forcing us to use the Photo Downloader? It's terrible. Let go of crap that doesn't work and give us featuers that are actually helpful.
