Can't change FindChangeList.txt because it's locked

I've been struggling with this for hours.

- InDesign is closed.

- I have the new query I want to use. 

- This is the error I get (also attached) "You don’t own the file “FindChangeList.txt” and don’t have permission to write to it."

It tells me I can duplicate it but it won't let me save the duplicate either. How do I edit this script???

Open the terminal application on your MAC and execute the following command chmod 777 <path to the Findchangelist.jsx> Replace the path within the <> with the actual path of the file, if you drag-drop the file on the terminal it will paste the filepath automatically. You can also do this using the Finder, see the following article https://macpaw.com/how-to/change-permissions-mac -Manan
