Hi there,

Just want to let you know, since using CS6 there has been an annoying bug where you cannot save/overwrite files. Now I'm not sure if this is a CS6 bug or OSX Lion Bug but I've figured out what causes it and a temporary fix until the bug can be resolved.

In either adobe programs such as Photoshop or Dreamweaver etc.. If you try to save and overwrite/replace a file with the same file name, the Adobe program says it saves, however the old file is still there and was not replaced.

But you'll also notice this only happens if you have the file "Highlighted"/Clicked on in Finder, if you click on another file and highlight it. Then try overwriting the old file again it will then successfully replace the file.

Hope this helps.
Cheers,
Cyris

If there is an error writing to the file, Photoshop should tell you about it.

But the OS holding the file open just because you have it selected - is an OS bug.

Yeah it's literally only when you've clicked on the file.

For example, If I had to right click on 1.jpg > open in > photoshop | It would then open it in photoshop and the file will still be "selected" or "highlighted" in Finder in the background.

So if you try to save and replace, it will not replace the file until you click off the file you're trying to replace.

Hard to explain, but hope this will be easy for others to understand.

OK, we'll have to investigate and see what's going on. But it sounds like it has to be another OS bug.

For reference, I'm running Adobe CS6 on OSX Lion 10.7.4
