Launching Bridge within PS CS6

Mar 28, 2012 9:21 AM

Tags: #bridge #feature_request

Just an observation really.

 

In PS CS5, you could launch / access Bridge from the Bridge Icon at the top of the screen, now (I think) you can only do this by clicking Mini Bridge link at the bottom of the screen and then clicking on the Bridge icon. I personally preferred it when you had direct access to Bridge via the icon at the top of the screen.

    File > Browse in Bridge or Alt + Ctrl + O should get you there.

    I'm liking having a little more room to work.

    Same here. A 10x10 icon does'nt take up that much room, and not having it there mucks up the workflow. I don't like the minibridge as it reduces the work space area.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I hadn't noticed it was gone. In CS5, I hit that Bridge icon a lot throughout the day.

     

    Well, that sucks.

    I have two 24in monitors. That itty bitty 10x10 icon doesn't eat up a lot of room, neither does the tool/app bar.

    With that much screen space you could always undock the Mini-Bridge panel so that the [BR] icon is always available.

    It's a matter of work flow. Also not both monitors are used when photo editing. A 10x10 icon doesn't take up that much room. MiniBridge slows the process.  Put the itty bitty icon BACK!  Removing it was a crappy change.

    Bring back the Bridge Button. It's normal and necessary to go back and forth between PS and Bridge throughout the day and should be as quick and easy as possible. Programmers don't think like retouchers, so listen to us, please.

    I agree bring back the Bridge icon, and bring back the Arrange Screen icon as well.  Both were very handy.

    I made a quick Action using one of the "F" buttons to bring up Bridge but I also would like very much  to see the Bridge icon in PS 6 as it was in PS5. C'mon Adobe work with your customers.

    Hmm… I hadn't even noticed it, since I always launch Bridge before Photoshop.

     

    Interesting.

    Saving that little bit of space??? Just to take up even more space with MB???? (which Sucks anyway).  All the other complaints about this misadventure by the Adobe team are spot on!  Bring back the icon in the menu bar.  This has to go down as the most ignorant change in the history off PS.   FIX-IT!!!
