Right click open from Bridge

Postby dennismullen on Fri Nov 12, 2010 9:03 pm

If I right click on a jpg in Adobe Bridge CS5, FastPicture Viewer is not offered as an option under Open With. Several other programs are but Bridge does not offer FastPicture Viewer making it not an option as a secondary picture viewer. Is there a way to get it offered as an option? I need to keep ACDSee as the default viewer so I can't just make it the default.

Thanks,

Not sure exactly how Bridge detects the possible viewers. A quick glance at the preferences revealed that you can associate any program with any file type (as default) in Bridge, but apparently not edit the list of alternative editors.

Yes, you've got a good understanding of the problem. Now to find out how to get FastPicture Viewer on the drop down list in Bridge along with the other viewers. :)

On my system there are no other viewers on Bridge's list (and I have many installed). It just shows Photoshop and Illustrator in the Open With list for JPEGs. Perhaps there is a way to edit the list but I don't know it, you may have better luck in Adobe's forums.
