Using Mac Mini: Lion OS.
Adobe CS6 Photoshop / Bridge
This Output worked in the past. Sometime in the last month it has stopped working.
I select three images for examples and want to create a simple pdf (content sheet)
Nothing fancy, no watermark.
I have reset the preference settings at bridge startup with the (hold alt key) still doesn't work.
Any help would be great.
Hi Greg. You’ve posted your question in a forum that is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop. I'm moving your question to the Bridge General Discussion forum for specialized attention to your situation.
Greg, can you clarify a bit more.
What exact versions do you have of OSX and Bridge (About Bridge)
What do you mean with the past (same versions a few weeks ago or other set up). And what is blank, can you provide a screenshot of your Output workspace so we can see what you are seeing (or not seeing)?
Since Curt is on Windows he is probably not aware of the fact that on a Mac the Alt and Option key are the same :-)
would make use PC guys happier.
What's in a name...
But if you really want to get happy you should start to use a Mac yourself, and don't tell me you feel to old for that my dear friend, with your PC knowledge a Mac will be a piece of cake for you, thus leaving a lot of time to spend on other happy things (besides enjoying a Mac)
Bridge : CS6 (version 22.214.171.124)
No software updates have been installed. The Output would give me option to PDF or Web.
Nothing is happening now. The RIGHT hand window pane is completely empty.
I select my three images, click on Output and nothing happens. (Just three selected images and and empty pane on the right hand side.)
As of a month ago, this worked. I selected three images and Output, a whole window would show up with options to adjust the layout of my pdf sheet.
I could fill in the header and footer, select columns and rows, resolution. Everything. Now nothing shows up.
I can't describe it anymore than that.
Thanks for any help
The RIGHT hand window pane is completely empty.
Thanks for the screenshot and it is indeed very odd.
Can you first try to select the triangle next to the row with workspace names (Output amongst them and selected as per your screenshot) and from the drop down menu under the triangle select 'reset workspace'
In Bridge Preferences (menu Adobe bridge CS6 / Preferences) select the 'Start Up scripts section and see if the script "adobe Output Module is listed and if there is a check mark in front of it.
If there is no check mark select it and you probably will be OK.
Otherwise a reinstall of PS (that contains Bridge as an application) might be solving this problem and bring back the Output module script
Startup Script was not the problem or solution.
I completed a full uninstall, and then clean install after a system reboot.
I updated software too.
Bridge is now working 100%.
Thank you for the suggestions and responses.
I am experiencing the same issue. The Adobe Output module is missing from the scripts in preferences. My question is... Is it possible to simply install the missing script and not have to go thru the hassel of uninstalling and reinstalling the whole shebang. Thanks, David

First restart Bridge holding down option (Mac) or ctrl (Win) and choose reset preferences.
Otherwise provide more details about OS, computer and exact Bridge version.
I went thru the Preferences reset and no go. There is no "output module" listed in the startup scripts. It seems that a full uninstall and reinstall should work but I was hoping to avoid that and simply install the rogue module. iMac Late 2012 10.8.3 CS6 Bridge 126.96.36.199
I selected "Reset Preferences" but this did not solve the problem.
Can you clarify, did it work before without problems on this same system or is it a new install of Bridge or the system or both?
When it worked before quit Bridge and in the user library (Per OSX 10.7 by default hidden, use menu Go in Finder and press option key to reveal) preferences folder find and delete the Bridge plist file. Then restart again holding down option and again reset prefs. Now try again.
