I am using FM2019 on Windows 10. 

 

From FM, I am publishing to Responsive HTML5 in the FILE > PUBLISH menu.

When I try to save / save as / save and close the settings, I get an "Access Denied" message.

I have admin rights on the machine and nothing has changed (so far as I know) between the last time I could edit the file and now that I cannot.

 

Any idea what is causing this and how I can fix it?

That would be it! Suggestion: save your .sts files off in some "accessible" location that IT isn't likely to lock down on you 

Where's that "Settings-Custom.sts" file located?

In the same folder as the settings.sts and the default.sts file: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe FrameMaker 2019\fminit\Publisher

 

I haven't changed its location since before when I could edit the settings.

 

However . . . since you asked this, I double-checked and it seems like I no longer have permissions for this folder.  I've contacted my IT department to see if they can fix this for me.

 

Thank you for the (indirect) suggestion.  I'll update this Q&A if that turns out to be the answer to the problem.

And give your .sts files sufficiently unique names, as FM doesn't necessarily default to using whatever might be in the same directory.
