After updating to Bridge 12.0, the XMP files are flashing when I move to a directory containing RAW files. The flashing eventually stops, but the XMP files are continue to be shown. "Show Hidden Files" is not selected, and selecting and unselecting, makes not difference. It must be a preference setting, but I can't find it.
I have exactly the same problem. When opening CRW files you have to select only the actual files one-by-one. If you select a number of files including the XMP files Photoshop will not open anything.
I have the same problem here. Blinking .XMP files...
Seems that either Adobe isn't aware of this problem or they don't care. There is no reply anywhere on this issue and it is a great huge pain. Personally I'm looking around for a good alternative to Bridge. This is unacceptable.
Anybody have a screen shot or movie they can upload.
Not seeing it here on my windows machine.
I see what your looking at.
I don't have tht issue, as you can see from the screen attached.
And there is no flickering either.
Not sure what is going on with your system.
I am on windows 11. Have you checked to see if your video driver is up to date?
What about deleting Bridge, rebooting, and reinstalling Bridge?
Jim, your xmps may not be flickering but why are they showing in Bridge? Do you have Hidden files showing?
Yes I do have hidden files checked.
Looking at your PDF the screenshot displays XMP files in some cases. I have been using Bridge now for a long time and have never had them displayed. Show Hidden Files is turned off in the View menu so they shouldn't be there.
Double checked my video driver and it is up to date.
The word "flickering" I've also discovered is a misnomer. What is happening is that the first 4 XMP files is quicly replaced with a CR2 file and immediatly reverts back to an XMP file. Bridge is replacing an XMP file with a CR2 file and the titles of the boxes are changing as this is going on.
I recorded a video of this and it's attached.
Wow that is WEIRD.
I shoot Nikon .NEF files so I have no clue. if its format related
Clearing the cache on the files doesn't change things?
Same problem here (Win10 Pro 21H2). I reverted back to Bridge v11. It seems to me that at every PS up-date, something also gets broken.
Same thing happening to me. Camera type does not seem to matter. Older and newer Fujis, Nikons, Olympus, or Panasonic.
We are from Adobe Bridge Team and we tried this issue locally but not able to reproduce at our end. Please suggest if you are able to reproduce the issue consistently.
Could you share the following details about the issue:
Just noticed the the actual CR2 files did not transfer. I'll try again.
This method will not accept large CR2 files either. We'll need to try another method.
The issue is with the xmp files.
Thanks for your feedback, we are able to reproduce the issue with the shared XMP. Team is investigating it further.

Having the same issue with Bridge 12.0 on a windows 10 machine with Nikon NEF files. Started with the update to 12.0 and has not resolved in the patch release. xmp files show in all directory windows, show hidden files is not selected, "blinking" occurs during initial loading of directory as it bounces between showing xmp and NEF until it settles to showing the XMPs. The NEFs exist but all later on in the directory. Major nuisance.
It already has been noted here ion the thread and a fix "hopefully" will be coming.
ANy update on this issue? Need a fix.
I can see Tanu Goel from Adobe Bridge Team has confirmed they can reproduce issue and are investigating.
But just for the record, I have issue too.
