The rtoom goes silent is losing work so common with adobe that no one is impressed? Are we experiencing the demise of adobe? There are so many problems it's untenable. I can't afford to continue using a product that literally fails every day in one way or another.

We are not Adobe employees, we are voluteers trying to help. So we may want to leave the room from time to time.
There is a newer version of Monterey.
Did you try to resize the Save dialog, make it bigger or smaller to make the save button active?
I don't even get the save dialog
This is really crazy what adobe is doing. charging so much money for something that completely doesn't work! something breaks 3 times a week now. I've lost so much money because of this.

Several people have now reported that the initial save issue they had is solved with the new system and the new version. Yours looks different than what initially has been reported and it also doesn't look like a general issue, but something specific to your setting.
We are sorry to hear about your experience. The issue you are facing is different than the one discussed in this post. I would request you to update macOS v12.3.1 which has resolved another "save as" issue. If that doesn't help as well,
I would request you to share a few details like:
Change the primary monitor from System Preferences (Display) and then restore the settings to the original. The steps are shared here.
Let us know how it goes. I will be looking forward to your response.
