But I can't overwrite pictures either. Even if Photoshop suggests it and has full access to all folders in the security settings, just save a new file with a copy on the back and don't overwrite it even it asks to do so. This is a real problem because if you don't pay attention it can happen that you give the "old" picture by mistake and later on the newer one is overlooked with "copy" on your full desktop.
So, I know this is not all Photoshop – it is this over secured Catalina Os. But why are other apps able to overwrite files?
Updating to latest Version maybe helps but... later versions still freeze on my new Mac Pro (made a thread already) after an hour.
I'm using Photoshop since version 2 but now its getting more worse every update in my opinion.
I should mention that I use PNG format.
My solution: Go to File -> Export -> Export Preferences...
Set the export pref to whatever you normally would use. For me, I set it to JPG with a quality of 10.
Go to Edit -> Keyboard Shortcuts...
Remove they keyboard shortcut for Save As... and map Shift+Command+S to the Quick Export option.
YMMV, but this has helped me. Thank you to those who have mentioned it on various posts.
MacOS Catalina 10.15.5
This has been happening in the last few releases of Photoshop on Mac OS Catalina. AND IS STILL IN THE LATEST 21.2.0 RELEASE.
All the Photoshop professionals who work on Mac and keep their computers up-to-date that I've talked to, are having this exact same issue and are also super frustrated. It forces uneccessary productivity and workflow problems on everyone.
Why would I want to unknowingly save a copy when I have explicitly pressed the button to "REPLACE" the file?
PLEASE FIX THIS.
BUT, here is the thing. With a SAVE AS, if you pick to save over a file, it confirms the overwrite but then makes a copy instead which is ridiculous and has led to actual problems with file management. YET, if you do s SAVE FOR WEB (legacy) and go through the steps to save over a file it will write over the file.
SO don't see how OS can be blamed for this, since it CAN be done.
photoshop cc 2020 saving unwanted copy instead of saving over I work news it takes valuable time to go in and delete old one and take the word copy off. It happens with pngs, jpgs, psds - it tells me it's replacing it but it isn't this is maddening
1. Les commandes Enregistrer sous... et Enregistrer sont des commandes réservées aux documents originaux. il est donc normal quand on crée un nouveau document de l'enregistrer sous *.psd ou *.tiff formats qui vont conserver toute l'architecture des calques de PS.
2. Les autre formats tels que .jpg ou . png etc... ne conservent pas l'architecture du document tels que travailler dans PS, donc sont à considérer comme des document livrables ou exportés.
Personnellement les document originaux, je conserve le non-destructif et les exportations je les fait au format souhaité pour par le client, je ne vais pas leur donner toutes mes recètes de cuisine et donc j'utilise, à partir de mon original, Exporter... qui me permet très simplement de paramétrer facilement les caractéristiques du fichier livré.
Je ne pense pas qu'il faille avoir bac plus 10 pour comprendre cette façon de travailler et permet surtout de ne pas écraser trop facilement nos fichiers !
Hello, I find that all this debate, does not take place to be....
1. Enregistrer orders under and to Record are orders reserved for the original documents. it is therefore normal when they create a new document to record it under *.psd or *.tiff formats which are going to keep all architecture of the tracing papers of PS.
2. Other one formats such as .jpg or. png etc do not keep the architecture of the document such as to work in PS, therefore are to consider document as which been be delivered or export.
Personally document eccentrics, I keep the non-destroying and exports me them made in desired format for by the customer, I am not going to give them all my recètes of kitchen and therefore I use, from my original, Export who allows me very simply to define easily the characteristics of the delivered file.
I do not think that it is necessary to have receptacle more 10 to understand this manner of working and allows especially not to crush our files too easily! Sorry, Google translation!!!
Cette erreur est présente depuis des mois et des versions de PS !!!
MacOS 10.15.5 + PS 20.2.0
Why, you do not correct this limp with dialogue which already does not work any more for some time, words copy its incrément do not add any more in the name of file if the file already exists and that the hut in front of ' As copy ' it is checked, is really a prejudicial error.
MacOS 10.15.5 + PS 20.2.0
This error is present for months and versions of PS!!! Sorry Google is translating this for me !
at least they are actually acknowledging theres an issue now... still waiting for a fix adobe...
Cannot overwrite an existing file when saving with the same filename
Photoshop saves a copy instead of overwriting an existing file with the same name.
- Manually rename the saved file and remove 'copy' from the file name.
- Save the file to a different location.
Note: We are working with Apple to address this issue.
