Utility Script Pack 3.0 for Bridge available

Just wanted to announce that my Utility Script Pack for Bridge is about to be updated to version 3.0. The older version 2.1 is currently on Adobe Exchange.

This pack includes the following:

NEW - Backup Settings - Backups up and restores Favorites, Labels, and Keywords

Batch - Adds the Tools->Photoshop->Batch command to Bridge contextual menus

Copy Path - Copies the selected file path to the Clipboard

NEW - DNG Convert - Front end for the Adobe DNG Converter, allows selection and conversion of individual files or an entire folder

Filename to Title - Writes the filename minus extension into the dc:Title XMP field

Find In Collections - Finds collections that selected file(s) are members of and allows removal from those collections

Folder Info - Gives a summary of folder info, similar to Get Info/Properties

Folder List Export - Export a folder or selection listing to a text file, with configurable metadata export choices

JPEG MiniExport - Export a selection of files to JPEG.

NEW - Keyword Capture - Creates a list of keywords from a file selection to import into Bridge

Keyword Optimizer - Works around a bug in Bridge and Photoshop with adding keywords.

Label Bar - Adds a label/rating toolbar, similar to the toolbar in Lightroom. Not supported on Bridge CC 2018.

NEW - Launch Folder - Sets a default folder for Bridge to automatically open at launch

NEW - Move Items - One-click command to move selected items into a new or existing folder

MultiSearch Plus - Streamlines searching through a list of items

NEW - Open Directly - Bypass ACR and open selection directly into Photoshop

NEW - PDF Export - Streamlines and adds features to creating PDF files with the Output module

Text Preview - Adds a text preview panel so plain text files can be displayed in bridge. Also displays metadata information for many video formats.

Utility Pack Preferences Panel - Status and settings preference panel

NEW - Window Sync - Brings back the New Synchronized Window command

I have fixed numerous bugs and back-ported scripts for Bridge CC 2018 compatibility. I do recommend using the latest CC 2020 release.

This script pack is released under the Apache license and is free for commercial and non-commercial use. I have the current 3.0 version on Dropbox for download. Installation instructions are in the Help file.

Thanks lots.  How hard would it be to mirror the information in the "content" panel to another one that we could move- it is a pain that they moved it to a panel that (if you are using portrait mode) cannot be read..

Thanks for the new version, it's invaluable!

I discovered a tiny problem - I can't get the labels bar to locate to the top where I prefer it. I keep changing its location to "Top"in the settings but it changes back to "Bottom" every time. Can you help?

Try that update and see if the problem is fixed. Appears to work correctly here.
