I use batch rename all day on folders of images, using a complicated preset to accommodate a client's naming conventions. The 2019 update has hobbled my workflow, due to sloppy design and lack of real-works testing. In the 2018 and previous versions, all my fields were visible, the cursor was always at the top, and I could practically blaze through it without even looking.
In the 2019 window, I can't see the entire formula, and the cursor defaults to the third field (not even visible on screen), I have to take my hands off the keyboard to use the mouse, and carefully watch what I'm doing. If the window were resizable that would be a fix, but it isn't.
This is unlikely to be a problem for most users, but for professional high-volume users something like this can cost hours per year. I've come to rely on Creative Cloud offering a complete suite of digital imaging tools, including asset management in Bridge. I'm not getting what I paid for anymore, and I feel like professional users are less important to Adobe with every update.
I've been using Bridge 2018 waiting for a fix (also not a fan of the way "cut and paste" has been changed in the Mac version), with all its bugs that never got fixed. However, this isn't a long term solution because eventually I'll have to move to newer versions to keep up with the rest of Creative Cloud.
