Thanks for the clarification. I'll try to reproduce it at my end and will update,
Adobe Bridge CC 2018 v22.214.171.1242 I have the exact same problem with my Metadata Templates completely scrambled, even though when I view them in the Template Folder they are in perfect alphabetical order. And, I have almost 200 custom templates I use frequently, so this is a pain. On top of that Bridge 2018 no longer supports the creation of Web Galleries. My perspective with the 2018 update is that so far it has been a huge step backwards. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mark Weidman
Adobe Bridge CC 2018 v126.96.36.1992 The problem of scrambled metadata templates unfortunately continues. I spoke with an Adobe tech person who acknowledged this is a known problem and "should be fixed in the next update to Bridge", which could take a month or so. If you are like me and have hundreds of saved custom templates this is a huge time suck, and I am an unhappy & frustrated customer. Hopefully this will be repaired SOON!
I started this thread five (5) months ago and, despite promises by Adobe engineers, there is no resolution in site. This has really really clouded my perception of Adobe. I have written five (5) letters to Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen; each sent via FedEx. Each time an engineer would call me from India basically complaining about how busy & overworked that they are; and twice I was told the problem would be repaired in the next update. Well, the "next update" has come & gone and the problem still exists.
I encourage you to send letters expressing your frustration to:
Adobe Systems Incorporated
Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer
345 Park Ave.
San Jose, CA 95110-2704
If anyone has found a competing software that has a similar function, but is working properly, please let me know as I am more than ready to jump the sinking Adobe ship.
