Migrate PDF content sheet templates from previous versions to Bridge CC (version 8.0)
Templates created using the Adobe Output Module plug-in in Bridge CC 2017 (version 7.0) and earlier releases go missing when you update to the October 2017 release (version 8.0).
Product version affected
October 2017 release of Bridge CC (version 8.0)
Windows and macOS
In earlier versions of Bridge CC, the custom user templates created using the Adobe Output Module plug-in were saved in .json format. The October 2017 release of Bridge CC (version 8.0) has a new Output workspace that saves the templates in .xml format. To open the templates saved in .json format in the latest release of Bridge (verion 8.0), you need to convert them to .xml format.
Use the script bridgeTemplateMigration.jsx given below to convert your .json templates to .xml templates in Bridge CC version 8.0 in a single run.
You'll need the following applications installed on your system:
- Adobe ExtendScript Toolkit CC
- October 2017 release of Bridge CC (version 8.0)
- An older version of Bridge CC (Bridge CC version 7.0, Bridge CC version 6.3, Bridge CC version 6.2, Bridge CC version 6.1, Bridge CC version 6.0)
Follow the steps given below to migrate templates to the latest version of Bridge.
Open ExtendScript Toolkit CC on your computer.
In the ExtendScript Toolkit, choose File > Open and select BridgeTemplateMigration.jsx.
Select ExtendScript Toolkit CC as the executable and Main as the script engine set.
Choose Debug > Run. Alternatively, click the Start Running The Script button to run the script.
Enter the number corresponding to a version for which you want to migrate your templates in the dialog box that appears on the screen and click OK.
(Optional) To migrate your templates to Bridge CC (version 8.0) from another older version of Bridge installed on your system, repeat steps 1 through 7.
