Hi, how are you today? I have issues with lost keywords in Adobe Bridge 2022 and I was wondering if there is an updated Utility Script Pack thay would be helpfull with this? Thank you very much!

I found the .xls file in Appdata and changed it to .txt and replaced it, but that was not the solution unfortunately. Thank you!

When you say lost keywords- are keywords lost from your files, or are you talking about the keyword list in Bridge?

If you can find a backup of your older Adobe Bridge Keywords.xml file that would be best. Perhaps a slim hope though...

 

The next best option is to export out the keywords to plain text file from your existing images. The format has to be correct for Bridge to use the Keywords panel menu item to import the keywords back in. Flat and hierarchical keywords need to be indented with tabs differently.

This is a complex topic, although I wrote the following blogpost to help simplify this discussion, it is admittedly not easy for those unfamiliar with the topic to follow:
