Let's make the spotlight in Bridge like the Spotlight of Finder! Yeah? I say yeah why not?

It would be HEAVENLY if Spotlight in Bridge worked like Finder's Spotlight. Right now, it is too literal to be much use when looking for multi named files, where there could be different options of what that name contents and in which order they are in. Note I'd be VERY happy to test spin any updates on this product for you of this matter! Seriously!!!

I understand that a lotta people have moved to Lightroom. I get that.

BUT having tried Lightroom 3 times now with the help of Mark Fitzgerald, who wrote the book on it... (for real) I fail as a professional to find it capable of keeping up with my needs. Bridge however CAN!

This last tweak of Spotlight running more efficiently would sew up a huge search problem, making it the  PERFECT program I assumed you wanted it to be!

I know I am NOT the only Pro using Bridge CC...

Come on Adobe, give it a tweak. You know how, pleezzzzzzze "Just Do It"  :)

Both Apple and Microsoft have APIs which allow apps to request disk catalog data, but AFAIK Adobe doesn't use those.

The search field in the upper right has Spotlight and other options, which I am sure that you are aware of:



Otherwise there is the more capable Edit > Find command.

Can you please provide examples that clearly illustrate the differences between the OS results vs. Bridge results using Spotlight?
