New Output Module bugs

I'm glad to see the Output module returned to Bridge, but it has bugs and design issues.

The "Permissions Password" feature is not sticky. It doesn't appear to be saved as part of a custom template and keeps unchecking itself. This was also a bug in the previous Output module.

Removal of auto reset- when creating multiple pdf's, the set of images is not automatically reset. In the old version, selecting new images would output those images. This is poor design, creating a pdf should include the selected set of images and not a previously selected set.

Still no custom font sizes and still no use of a watermark image and text together.

Still no use of the Title field instead of filename.

Search order is not saved so Acrobat DC searches columns from left to right, even if layout is by row left to right. So searching is out of order.

When images are added to an empty preview, the display shows the last page rather than the first page.

Header/footer placement, watermark, and page number all use different widgets for page placement. This should be consistent instead of having three different selectors.

No auto-generated fields (current date and creation of hyperlinks would be nice.)

Preview display is buggy, sometimes when moving through pages, the preview is partly blank with images not showing.

There are no controls for the pdf output (optimization, PDF/X, compatibility, etc.)

That's all I see immediately but there is probably more.

Yeah that too, although there are other ways to generate a web gallery outside Bridge.

Hi David,
Spent a bit of time looking today... I could use Lightroom but it's a lot of work to get from my finished work or collections in Bridge, same too with Capture One and it's not as flexible!
Key point is that I want to put the gallery on my own website!
Any other suggestions...
What I need to be able to do is show several stakeholders what shots have been taken -  builder, graphic designer, and estate agent for example! Adobe make it really hard sometimes :-)
