Animate unable to save document

Animate has started giving me an error where I cannot save my document, even if I have been saving in the same location. It suggests saving under a different name or in a new location, but still gives me an error when I try. It just started doing it this week on multiple documents. As someone who uses Animate on a daily basis, I wonder if this is a bug in the latest build since I've never seen this before. Has anyone else experienced this?

Hey!Found another workaround: Had the unable to save document problem in Animate CC 2018. I then opened Animate CC 2017 and saved an empty document on the desktop. After this, saving works in CC 2018 too!

I've been saving as .XFL instead. It creates a lot more documentation this way, but it's better than losing your file altogether.

Thanks for this!  It's now my workaround too.

Not a software solve but we use dropbox to restore a previous version of the fla when this happens. Saved our butts more than a handful of times!

I have been able to fix this problem, and a whole bunch of other issues that appeared out of nowhere on my mac, by resetting permissions for my Home directory.

I followed the instructions here:

Thank you!

This not only fixed my issues with Animate CC, but it also fixed my issues with After Effects!
