Bridge: Support HiDPI for Windows

After fixing the issue with my new Samsung monitor (3846x2160) in Photoshop CC2014 by setting the preferences in Experimental Features to Scale UI 200%,

I have the same problems with Bridge. Only that Bridge doesn't give me any choice in preferences.

Lightroom, Dreamweaver and Illustrator are o.k.

Hope Adobe will address the HD screen issue soon, since I read that many users have similar problems.

Support for 200% was added to Bridge CC 2015. https://helpx.adobe.com/bridge/using/whats-new.html#HiDPIsupportanduserinterfacescalingpreferencefor...

Continuous scalable UI (e.g.150%, 250%, etc) is something the team is investigation, along with Photoshop.

What do you mean the "Update won't work"? Do you get a specific error?

Going help - updates and nothing would happen. I believe adobe creative cloud was chucking a fit and not working. Re downloaded creative cloud, installed it and updates happening.

How can I increase the text size on panel menus in Bridge CC? I'm working on a 4k monitor and the text is so small I can't read it. No, I am not going to decrease the resolution on my monitor to fix the problem. I have been successful increasing text size in Photoshop and Lightroom.

In Bridge CC: file name, etc. font size seen on 30" 16:10 monitor at 2560 x 1600 resolution is much too small. Is there a way to increase this font size? Thanks.

I would at to the weight of this topic working on a Dell XPS 15 3840x2160 screen ans bridge is unusable. I teach Bridge workflow and this makes my lessons a nightmare, PS is fine and LR also but please sort this out soon. I realise the ball is kicking between MS and Adobe regarding this issue but really Adobe if you can get lightroom & PS to look great on these screens you should be able to do the same with bridge and other applications.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Adobe Bridge support in Windows for 4k monitors - total fail.

Bridge support for Windows 8.1 with 4k monitor? Unreadable fonts (2 point or smaller) in menus, toolbars, or any other text on screen. I know 8.1 has some control over this in Display, but it effects all programs, not just the Bridge interface. Also, Bridge supports the Mac retina display but not win 8.1 4k monitors?

Adobe not supporting HiDPI displays is like Ferrari deciding to only sell 4 clyinder engines. Wtf. It has been almost a year and still Bridge is not fixed. Moving on. There are other good photo editing software packages out there (OnOne is my leading contender for replacing Adobe). Adobe has lost its edge, and it couldn't be clearer than a photo editing package being unable to support HiDPI displays.

Team Adobe, Bridge badly needs an update. The number # 1 thing Bridge needs is to scale with HiDPI. Perhaps add options for 150% size increase in UI. Also, this update cant wait till CC 2016, please make mid cycle fix.

I just installed Bridge CC on my iMac over the weekend, but I've been tremendously frustrated trying to read the inalterably tiny text. Please, Adobe, add a feature to increase fontsize ASAP.

See if this method, works, although it doesn't mention Bridge so I'm not sure:

I thought that method would work for me, but it didnt. It does a great job to scale the UI, but it also scales the photos which should not be scaled. I understand that Adobe is not the only company with scaling issues, but lightroom seems to be working ok in terms of scaling...why not apply that knowledge to Bridge?

I'd guess the Bridge development resources are borrowed from other teams and are busy with those other products.

Bridge is an intermediary product used to select photos for adjustment or usage in other products. Does it matter so much that the image is scaled up, as long as it isn't in Photoshop or InDesign or whatever other product the image will be used it?

I hear you, but when you are paying monthly dues, the least Adobe can do is dedicate some resources to work on the basic user interface in their programs (Bridge, Photoshop, etc).

Adobe Bridge CC doesn't scale well on High DPI monitors. Menu items and UI displays with tiny font which is almost useless.

Adobe, really? It's 2015, HiDPI monitors have been out long enough now that they are standard on most of your Bridge CC user client's desktops. Adobe has solved this it's other products, why not Bridge CC? Maybe Adobe is simply getting rid of Bridge?

Size of display font within Bridge is too small to read on a windows 10 laptop! Was there was no bug fix at this time. Was encouraged to use this feed back forum to move this fix up in priority. What gives?

It's absurd that Adobe knows this is a problem and has created a solution in SOME of their programs, but not in Bridge. Get on top of this adobe!

Having worked for largish sofware companies for 15 years, this behavior from a software provider usually means either A) they bought the technology and can't support it or B) the product/technology is slated to go away/retired or replaced. Bridge has been around a while. I'm going to guess it's slated to be replaced.

I got a 4k monitor and now Adobe Bridge is worthless!
Please fix this like you did in Photoshop!
