Hi Rudy,

 

Answer: no

 

People have been asking for the ability to separate the Panels from bridge since Bridge v. 1 so don't hold your breath.

 

Sorry

This was possible in old versions of Bridge, which had the New Synchronized Window command. When you used that, you could have multiple windows on the same container, so for example one window could be a thumbnail preview grid and the other window could be a large Preview panel of a single item in the same folder, and changing the selection would update the other synchronized window. I really enjoyed using Bridge that way, and I did put the grid on one display and the large view in another.

 

But for some unexplained reason, Adobe killed the Synchronized Window feature around 7 years ago. A least I can still use two windows on one container in Lightroom Classic…

 

If you want Adobe to bring back the Synchronized Window feature, it looks like there is an existing feature request on the official Bridge Feedback site, with 28 upvotes. You might vote and comment there:

Bridge: Bring back the "New Synchronized Window"

I have a script in my Utility Script pack that reenables the Synchronized Window feature. That way you can have a second window that has just the Preview.

You RULE.  Thanks so much for this.  Why Adobe won't let us have a preview window on a separate monitor is beyond me.
