Bridge CC ratings don't show up in full-screen preview mode until I rate something

When first going into full-screen preview mode in Bridge CC, ratings and labels don't show up until I rate or label an image. A bit frustrating. I'm using Windows 7 64-bit.

It is, isn't it? I don't know of any way when pressing the Spacebar to view an image solo to see its rating or label without first tapping a number key, which will set the rating or label without you meaning to. They are ready to hand with Cmd-B, but you have to have 2 selected or it will select everything in your folder in carousel mode.

There is a workaround that's not quite so kludgy, but still not terribly convenient. Revert to the older Slideshow (Ctrl-L) instead of the Full Screen Preview. Set slideshow options (Ctrl-Shift-L) to show the full caption. Probably you'll want to either set the slide duration considerably longer, OR remember to press the spacebar to stop the slideshow.

And then you might also consider turning this from a problem into an idea of what Bridge should be able to do for us (sounds like it might not even be all that difficult, but I'm no programmer).

Hmmm... what's odd is that I thought it showed in CS5 with the spacebar but I just checked now and it doesn't work there either (until you rate/label something too). 

I just tried the CTRL+L way. I'll be smashing things in no time lol but thank you so much for taking the time to respond and offer suggestions. It was definitely worth trying. I appreciate it.

I like to review my photos at 100% zoom level in full-screen mode... too many times I've labeled a photo 5 stars thinking "this shot is the one!" only to find out it's probably the worst shot of the day. lol It's much harder to make that mistake at 100% zoom in full-screen... plus it's more efficient than using the loupe (most of the time), especially early on in the rating/eliminating phase.

Thanks again Cristen! Much appreciated.
