Save As Overwriting File Type

  • Problem
  • Updated 7 months ago
When saving in the newest version of Photoshop, the program automatically selects the file extension. When you start typing the name of the file as intended, it deletes the extension. For example, if you wanted "untitled.jpg", it would just save as "untitled" unless you specifically highlighted it in the save menu. Many programs don't recognize files without the extension in the name.

Mac or Windows? What version of the OS? I can't reproduce this on my Mac running MacOs Mojave. The extension is not selected in the 'Save as' dialog, only the 'Untitled' name is. So if I type another name, only 'Untitled' gets replaced and the extension remains.

no, this is clearly an error. When you first open save dialogue, only the name is highlighted, but once you start typing, it glitches, highlights the whole thing (including extension) and overwrites.

@Keir Magoulas, non, car le fichier était déjà enregistré dans ce dossier et normalement quand je demande à PS de l'enregistrer sous pour un nouvel enregistrement, il doit automatiquement, si même dossier, me proposer Enregistrer en tant que copie et suffixer le nom du fichier avec le mot copie. Cette erreur est présente depuis PS 20.0.1

@Keir Magoulas, no, because the file was already recorded in this file and normally when I ask PS to record it under for a new recording, he owes automatically, even if file, to offer me Record as copy and suffixer the name of the file with word copies. This error is present since PS 20.0.1
