Photoshop CC: Unable to select file in the "Save For Web" save dialog in Sierra

I'm unable to select an image file when 'Saving For Web' in the 'Save As' finder window in Photoshop CC running on Sierra.

There are times when I need to save a new image using a similar name by selecting the existing file, which matches the name in the 'Save As' dialog field. Using Photoshop CC under Sierra I'm unable to do so because of the inability to select existing files in the Save-as finder window. 

I am able to right-click, so my workaround is to right-click on the file in question, select 'Rename' and then copy and paste the filename into the Save As form field.

Also, the Format, Settings & Slices options in the 'Save As' finder window are off-center, situated to the far left.

And I have this problem. I think Adobe should launch a new update.

Hi Joe and Chud, I am not able to reproduce the select file issue. If I

1. Select Export > Save For Web...
2. Then click (Save...)
3. Click on a file on my desktop

Result; I am able to click on files on my desktop in the Save Optimized As dialog to set the name in the Save As field at the top of the dialog.

Please let me know if your steps to reproduce are different. Exact steps to reproduce would be helpful.

I am seeing the alignment difference of the Formatting, Settings and Slices pop-ups
