User Interface updates

Consistent menu bar appearance

The menu bar at the top of Application follows a consistent color scheme with the selected interface color theme, on Windows 10. 

To set your color theme preferences, navigate to Adobe Bridge > Preferences > Interface (macOS) or Edit > Preferences > Interface (Windows), and select a Color Theme under the Appearance section. 

Earlier versions of Bridge without consistent color theme in the Menu bar on Windows 10 Color synchronized Menu bar with Bridge version 9.1 on Windows 10

Drag the slider left, to see the updated menu bar in Bridge. Slide right to check the experience on older versions.

Note:

On Windows 8 and earlier versions, the menu bar has a light color theme irrespective of the theme you choose. On macOS, the experience is already consistent with the selected color theme.

Image Backdrop theme support

You can now use the Image Backdrop slider to adjust the contrast levels in background of the Content and Preview panels according to your preference. This adjusted background color is independent of the selected interface color theme.

To modify the background theme, navigate to Adobe Bridge > Preferences > Interface (macOS) or Edit > Preferences > Interface (Windows), and adjust the Image Backdrop slider under the Appearance section. 

For more helpful information, see User interface scaling preferences.

Improved labels and ratings

The labels used to mark your files and folders in Bridge, are now rectangular in shape and have a fixed width. The labels are aligned to the left with star ratings visible over them, wherever applicable.

Use the new unrate icon () to remove rating of any file or folder. For a selected thumbnail, you can also click a filled star to remove its rating. For more information, see Label and rate files.

Note:

Unfilled star rating icons are no longer visible below a file or folder, unless you select its thumbnail.

Improved Content panel view

With this release, margins and spacing in the Content panel have been efficiently utilized so that more thumbnails fit in the default view. This allows users to easily view more number of assets and browse through them.

With this release, Bridge supports working in proxy environments. For more helpful information, see Proxy support for Creative Cloud apps.

Transparency support

With this release, Adobe Bridge supports transparency. You can see checkerboard thumbnails and previews for transparent .AI and .EPS file formats. Earlier, the transparency was replaced with a matte white background.
