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.
