I have noticed an annoying little problem with previewing photos in Adobe Bridge 2023 that was never a problem in previous versions. I don't know if this is a new feature that was introduced or if this is some kind of bug.
When I am sorting through photos from a recent shoot, I like to press the space bar to preview the photos in full screen and add labels / stars to them as I'm viewing them using Command + [number keys]. However, I have noticed that if I exit the full-screen preview for any reason, instead of just selecting the photo I exited the preview on, Bridge will make a selection of both the photo I started on and the photo I ended on. This is a minor issue, but it interrupts my workflow because now if I go back to full screen, it will only alternate between these two images and I can't continue on until I manually go back and deselect the earlier image. This issue has also resulted in me accidentally labeling the wrong image file multiple times and then trying to go back to find the right one. Is there any way to turn this feature off so that when I exit full-screen, only the photo I was viewing is selected?
Apparently this is a new bug in Bridge 2023.
Behaviour confirmed here using Windows 11.
Yes, I have the same problem, I thought I was doing something wrong. 😞 And the flickering persists, pretty annoying. The flickering in full screen can be stopped for some time by going back to "small" again, but then you've the problem with the two selected photos, which make this double annoying, since you've got to select manually and to look where you stopped (if pictures are very similar). Adobe, please, please, fix this..... both...
