Same here. Only noticed this bug once I upgraded to Catalina about a month ago (late to the party, I know). Now I have the same issue described above.  Patrick Mauldin described it the most completely with screen shots and everything. Adobe please fix. 3 months with nothing is unacceptable.

I just installed Photoshop 21.0.3 and I can say the issue is NOT fixed in that update.

And you know what blows my mind? I have the issue when I am working on my MacBook pro, but not on the Mac Pro (desktop). On the desktop, it still overwrites the old jpg with no problems!!!!

I think I just stumbled upon a workaround fix!! If you use the "Save For Web" feature it seems to actually overwrite the file rather than saving it as a copy.  Let me know if this works for you!!

File > Export > Save for Web

I just did the 21.0.3 update, and it didn't change a thing for me.  Still making copies instead of overwriting/replacing files.

Yep, it started adding  copy to the file name again. I hate you Adobe. I hate you so much.

This has completely screwed our workflow and has cost us thousands of dollars. How has this still not been resolved?

Same issue here. Outrageous behavior by Adobe. It's been over 3 months... They just don't care about their customers. Pity. This used to be a reliable Software Maker.

Doubt it will do any good what-so-ever, but just adding myself to the growing list of increasingly frustrated users with this issue. I honestly can't think of ONE good excuse for this to not have been corrected IN 3 MONTHS. I'm with Laura, if I could find a decent substitute I would be done.

Has any ever noticed or seen this message "File must be saved as a copy with this selection" and the same icon next to layers. But there's nothing you can deselect or change. It seems like it's telling you it will be a copy but doesn't give you an alternative.

Just sent the wrong file to a client. It's my fault, but come on adobe! This should be fixed. Not only is it costing me time but it will most likely cost me a client.

Just updated to Catalina 10.15.3, no change in behavior, so the update did not fix this on Apple's side.

Adobe, fix this.  There's no stupid little cloud feature that anyone wants more than this major productivity waster.  Your software causes errors in our work.  You might as well be Corel.
