I am moving from Bridge to LR and I cannot find a way to display document dimensions on the thumbnail (or even in metadata) like I can in Bridge.

A digital image does not have dimensions other that its pixel size.
Only when you consider making a print you might require sufficient pixels to export an image with a suitable ppi for the intended image size. So until you Print or Export, Document dimensions are irrelevant.
Some good info at- http://dpanswers.com/content/tech_pixels.php

Q. What are the Document Dimensions for an image 4000x3000 pixels?
A. There is no answer until you suggest what ppi you might print at!

Yeah, technically, that's correct.  But when I set the document dimensions and ppi in Photoshop and save the file, I should be able to see that setting in LR just like I did in Bridge.


And that's my problem...I can't.

Thank you.  I guess then I wasn't just missing how to do it.
