Jagged images and text still in bridge and ACR, though the update fixes this beautifully in photoshop. When will this be fixed?

It's on the roadmap.

More details here: http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/p...

Are all Photoshop Plug-ins now HiDPI compatible?

The default set of plug-ins that ship with Photoshop CS6, including Adobe Camera Raw 7.x and Liquify, have not been updated to provide HiDPI support at this time. We hope to provide support in the future.

Contact 3rd party plug-in vendors for HiDPI compatibility updates for their specific plug-ins.

Are there compatibility updates for Bridge CS6 to provide HiDPI and Retina Display support?

Not at this time. We hope to include HiDPI support for Bridge in the future.

Hello, both Camera Raw and Bridge now have HiDPI support:

Camera Raw 8.1 adds HiDPI support under Photoshop CS6 as well. http://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/kb/p...
Bridge CC has HiDPI http://helpx.adobe.com/bridge/using/w...

How is this implemented? The desktop version of Bridge still does not have HiDPI support.

Bridge and InDesign CS6 still do not support Retina display resolutions on my MacBook Pro so I have to use them in a resolution that looks like 800x600, and I can barely see what I work on. Please patch them!

Bridge still pixelated and looks like cr** as of today on 5K 27" iMac. PS itself is lovely. When will CS6 Bridge be fixed/updated?

Retina support was added after CS6 in CC.

So Jeffery, Adobe's position is not to support retina displays on CS6 despite the fact that Mac retina displays have been around for years and CS6 is still commercially available?

CS6 was released before Retina displays were available.
Some CS6 applications were updated to support Retina displays.

But new features will only go into the current versions of applications (and Retina support is a major feature).

But why update Photoshop CS6 which works fine and not it's sister app CS6 Bridge leaving users with pixelated menus on Bridge alone? Seems half an answer and a recurrent but minor irritant for CS6 based photographers. When I show pictures to my friends/colleagues/clients on Adobe Bridge I have to make excuses for why the interface looks so bad........
Surely this is a trivial fix to an otherwise superb bit of software.

Because Photoshop was the first app to tackle Retina support, and deal with all the issues. The other apps picked up the support later, once they had more time to do all the required testing (and after Photoshop worked out a lot of the issues).

No, support for scaled UI is far from trivial.

Chris, and with respect, clearly not ALL the issues have been dealt with. Presumably the lack of a Bridge upgrade is a commercial and not a user based decision. Thanks for the info.

Bridge already has the support, in Bridge CC.

The phrase "Photoshop was the first app to...deal with all the issues" doesn't mean that every issue was fixed, it indicates that PS was the only app at Adobe that was dealing with Retina issues, alone, with no other app to share dealing with the issues with. It means every Retina issue Adobe dealt with for some time was with Photoshop. In other words, Photoshop was the pioneer Retina app.

So the bottom line is basically my desktop version of CS6 (not CC) will not be patched to offer retina support for Bridge & ACR, right?

Correct - older versions of software do not get new features that appear in new versions.
