Bridge CS6 crashes when I try to apply metadata.

Jan 27, 2013 9:20 AM

I've had some major issues with my Bridge recently. I want to apply a metadata template to all my photographs, one folder of not too many photographs at a time. It was all good in the start but now, when I'm not even halfway through it keeps crashing all the time.


I tried restarting my computer, didn't help.

I tried checking for updats for my video card, nothing to update.

I tried getting rid of all the cache, didn't help.


It feels like I've tried everything now. I also split up my metadate template into one template for each part of it. It was fine for name and other short stuff but once I get to the longer ones, such as copyright notice it crashes again.


And it also crashes even if I just try to apply the metadata to a single file.

    What OS and how much RAM?


    Have you tried resetting preferences?  Hold down ctrl key or option key and start Bridge.  Will get a reset window.
