Hi, since I upgraded to Catalina on Mac OS, photoshop will give me this error no matter what I do, basically I can't complete any action on an image file  without getting the error. My photoshop has become useless. I uninstalled and re-installed multiple times, cleaned cache, installed previous versions of photoshop that were on the creative cloud to no avail. Am I doomed until adobe or catalina get updated?

This exact situation is happening to me as well. I cannot open any existing PSD files and even the simplest functions (such as adding text) will trigger this prompt on new projects.

I am having this issue as well. InDesign and Lightroom are also having issues.

This has happened to me before, try upgrading your Photoshop, I used the 2020 version, but it screwed my photoshop up, so I downgraded to the 2019 version, and it appears you have the 2019 version. So, try the 2020 version. I'm sure that'll help. :)
