New Macbook Pro, Adobe LRC, I'm getting disk permission errors every time I open LR, but I've given LR full disk access as per the instructions.

Is the no access issue with the internal disk or an external disk? If external, then you may find that setting the disk permissions to 'Ignore Ownership' helps. I've attached a screenshot.

It's an internal SSD. The LRC catalog and all files reside in "documents", although documents is also an icloud synched folder.

I'm not a fan of placing the Lightroom catalog in a cloud synced folder, especially not in a folder that can automatically become cloud only if your free disk space gets low. The default location for the Lightroom catalog is your Pictures folder, not your Documents folder. Unless you have a reason to want it in Documents, I would advise you to move it to Pictures.

Thanks for this. That's helpful. I can't believe Adobe's answer is to tell it to just ignore the error, but OK. I don't have a time machine on this machine since it's kind of a roaming work machine and data is offloaded to a file server once any job is done.  Again, thanks for the info.
