Sorting by Stars in Bridge CS6

May 25, 2012 5:42 AM

At some point, my previous version, CS4, stopped sorting based on stars or labels. While I could star or label, clicking on Sort didn't do anything -- it remained in the view where everything was shown.


Unfortunately, this has continued over into CS6 Beta and now the CS6 release. I thought I had a glitch in CS4 that would be fixed in CS6, but apparently some sort or setting was carried over from CS4.


The trouble is that I can't find what or where that setting is. Can someone please point me in the right direction to reset Bridge so that it will sort based on stars or labels?

    Sound like you have changed your labeling system to make it unreadable.


    Can you give more specifics? 


    What OS?


    Did you change the defalult defination of labels and stars?


    In you filter panel do you see number of images for Labels and Stars?  Such as    ***      6.


    If you click on entry for ***  (if you have stars) what does it do?

    The 2 programs are seperate, so whatever happens in one should not affect the other.


    That is why I am suggesting you have changed some procedure so that neither works as it happens in CS4 and CS6.


    When I am in filter panel and click on *** then all those images with 3 stars are the only ones on the screen.


    Without being there hard to say what is going on.

    Yes, to reset preferences hold down the Ctrl key and start Bridge.  You will get a reset window with 3 options.

    Yes! Yes! Yes!


    That sounds like three stars...


    Also don't forget sorting on stars is not working when files are in a stack, only the first file of the stack is giving the correct result.
