Hi Conrad C! Again, I'm happy to thank you! At the system settings, Keyboard, there were those shortcuts I newer knew their meaning :). Anyway, I can now shift between the Bridge windows by pressing Contrl-F6. By Contrl-F4, all the open windows on my MBP are shown one by one, and adding shift to this, the opposite direction is chosen. The shortcuts work with both the US and Finnish keyboard settings. Thanks! Tuomas

Please define "window?"

 

Do you mean if you have multiple windows of Bridge? Do you mean multiple windows being displayed in Content Panels? Do you mean individual Panels?

 

Please, I'm not trying to be funny here; it's just that what one person thinks is obvious is not always what others are thinking.

 

And, for the record, what's your OS, and what version/release of Bridge are you using?

 

Thanks

You did not say which operating system you are using, but on the Mac, if you opened multiple windows in Bridge 2024 using the File > New Window command, Bridge uses the standard macOS shortcut for cycling windows that you may have used in other Mac apps: Command-` (on a US English keyboard).

Hi! That sign (`) appears to be called gravis. Indeed, there is advice on the Apple's Finnish pages (https://support.apple.com/fi-fi/HT201236) concerning the action with the sign you suggest. However, experimenting with all kinds of key combinations with the sign on my recent MacBook Pro model, various things can happen (or not) but not the one I would like to have, the shift between the Bridge windows. I experimented with both USA and Finnish keyboard settings. So, Apple takes better care of the US Mac users than those of some minorities, like the Finnish 🙂 Regards, Tuomas

I checked the new Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts command in Bridge, and it looks like Bridge does not provide macOS standard Next/Previous Window (Shift-` and ` ) as customizable shortcuts. That would lead one to believe that Bridge is deferring to macOS on this, but it sounds like it does not work that way on your Mac.

 

Do the macOS standard shortcuts Move Focus to Next/Previous Window (Shift-` and ` ) work on your Mac in non-Adobe applications, such as the macOS Finder? If they don’t, then you could check macOS System Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Keyboard to see how macOS defines the shortcut Move Focus to Next Window on your Mac. If the shortcuts do work in other applications on your Mac but not Bridge, then somehow Bridge is not following macOS, even though it does on the US English keyboard.

 

The other weird thing about Bridge is that although it talks about multiple windows, and they behave like windows down to the shortcuts, they do not look like windows. The title bar at the top of a Bridge “window” is the thin title bar used for macOS floating panels; what macOS calls “windows” typically use the much thicker top title bar.
