I click on start new smart collection in Bridge CS4, enter the source (my F:\ drive), enter the criteria (rating greater than 3 stars) click on save and the save button undulates a little, but the window just sits there with no indication of what the problem is and my new smart collection doesn't get created. This happens regardless of whether I have 'include non-indexed files' checked or not or if I change the criteria. What am I doing wrong? I'm using Windows 7.
Has the location of the cache got anything to do with this? At the moment it is on another drive from the one I want as the source of my smart collection. Also, I don't have cache information exported to folders.I don't know whether this is relevant.
Bump. Was this fixed at all? I am having the exact same problem with Bridge CS4 on OS X 10.6, so clearly not an OS-specific problem. What's the point of having a Smart Collections feature if I can't use it?
If you are using an external drive the most likely problem is permission problems within the Operation System.
Close Bridge and then right click on Bridge start icon. Select "run as administrator". If it works this way there is a permission problem even if you are a single user and have full administrative rights.
It may be a hassle, but at least you know the work around.
