    Bridge cant' copy and paste metadata

    Davey808 Community Member

      I have found a minor bug (most likely overlooked till now) in PS CS6 Beta.   when you open a folder of images in the new version of bridge and you got to the metadata.   You are not ablt to cut and paste info from one box to another like previous versions.  tell me, this will be fixed please.

      P.S.  One more annoyance I have found is that your program will not allow me to place the App icons where I want on my dock bar (Mac OS 10.6.8)   I lke them to sit about 2/3rds across on the bar, but they keep putting themselves back to about a 1/3rd of the way across.     It's very annoying. I'd like to know if there is a way to stop this happening....

          The dock is managed entirely by you and Apple -- the application has no control over it.

            I disagree Richard.      I was on CS4. It became corrupted. I couldn't find my discs and I could see that CS6 beta was already out, so I didn't want to buy CS5, knowing that 6 is coming out.  Now that is why I'm on CS6 Beta.    When  I was on CS4  my app icons would stay exactly where ever I put them.   It is definitely not the case with these new Bridge and PS CS6 icons.    3 times now, I've placed them 2/3rds along the dock and 3 times now it's repositioned them to about 1/3rd of the way along.   I've never seen any app's icons do this ever and I have not changed operating systems recently.   If you're interested in looking into it.  I have a Mac Pro  2 x 3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon   running Mac OS 10.6.8 (snow leopard)   I'm just offering you guys these observations in the spirit of cooperation.     Maybe there is a hidden functionality on the doxk that this new version has activated...

              There is nothing to look into -- the location of the icons in Apple's dock is controled 100% by the user, or Apple.

              The application cannot change it's location in the dock.

              There is no hidden functionality -- it's just you, and Apple.

                It's definitely not something that Photoshop, or any other Adobe application is controlling. The OS controls the dock, not applications. You may want to try to delete the dock preferences:

                 

                To access your Preferences folder, open up a Finder window, Go > Go to Folder, then paste: ~/Library/Preferences

                Move both of these files to the trash. com.apple.dock.plist and com.apple.dock.db

                Open terminal and enter: killall Dock (make sure Dock is with a capital D).

                 

                **Anytime you work with system files, there's always a chance something can go wrong. Only attempt this if you are comfortable with the OS.

                  Also, what of the situation with nor being able to cut and paste while in Metadata?...

                    Which metadata boxes are you referring to? Copy/Pasting seems to work for me, but maybe I'm looking at the wrong boxes.

                      OK,  Open a RAW folder in bridge CS6 Beta.

                       

                      then   select "file" from the top menu,  then  select "file info"

                       

                      Then under IPTC  type in "whatever you want to type"  into the Headline Box

                       

                      then highllte the wrds that you typed and press "command" and "c" to copy     It doesn't copy it.

                      This is confirmed when you go to the box below and type in "command" and "v" to paste.     Nothing appears.   

                       

                       

                      I downloaded CS6 beta a couple of days ago........

                        I see where you're talking about now. I can confirm that copy/paste does not work in that section.

                         

                        However, with a photo selected, on the right where the Metadata panel is (Window > Metadata Panel), you can access the IPTC Core information, which seems to allow copy/paste.
