When I create a file and save it for the first time, it saves as 'Read-Only'. So, once I save it, that's it! I can't save it again or even make a PDF file. I've checked the permissions of the file, the folder, etc. and they're all 'Read and Write'. I'm paralyzed because of this, can anyone help?!?!
macOS or Windows? What if you change the destination of the file? Does that make any difference?
I'm on a Mac, running OS 12.5. It doesn't seem to make a difference if I change the destination. Thank you for trying to help me!
We're also seeing this problem, however our users are running Windows 10 in a Citrix Environment, they have access to edit the file. It is possible for them to 'File / Open' choose the file and 'Copy' rather than 'Normal' or 'Original', this gives them a new file which they can save as, and then reopen as normal. They can then save on this file for a while, but if we close Adobe InDesign down and then reopen, the new file opens as Read-only.
We're also seeing lots of files that are being opened [Converted] due to 2023 release being installed. We understand these need to be opened and saved again so both the original and the converted file exist, but we don't understand why various files are opening as [read-only]

Hi @Colleen Egan ,
Sorry to hear about the trouble. Could you please try the steps shared below:
If this doesn't help, please share more details like the version of InDesign & the OS. Are you saving the file locally or on any network folder synched locally?
When I go to 'Accessibility' and it wasn't clear to me how to add the desired software. There was also no column with 'full disk access'. I'm on a Mac, running OS 12.5. Any other suggestions? Thank you for trying to help me!
Okay....disregard my last response, I was in the wrong window (It's been a long day!). I did everything you advised and it seemed to work so far, fingers crossed! Not sure how this problem started in the first place, any idea?
Thank you for your help!! Much appreciated!
Thank you so much, Rishabh!!! That did the trick for me, with a few things that were just listed a little differently than on my Mac, but at least you got me where I needed to be to figure it out, and it worked!!!
I greatly appreciate your time to answer with full details so even I could do it and be able to complete my project!
