installed cs6 apps from the cloud including bridge. How come it hasn't taken over the file assocations from cs5? (I have all my adobe filetypes set to open in bridge). Woudn't it make sense to make the installer check and ask if we wanted cs6 to take over those associations?
Is there a quick way to get all adobe filetypes to open in bridge cs6 or am I going to have to do it manually?
There is no exchange of setting between versions, they are independant.
CS6 should set its file associations automatically. You can try pressing the radio button to "reset to default associations".
If you uninstalled CS5 after you installed CS6 you may have corrupted your file associations.
