When using Save As (PS 23.0.0 and Monterey 12.0.1 the focus is not in the file name field. When I click into the field and type one character the filename extension (i.e., .jpg) gets added and the cursor goes to the end of the extension so I end up with filenames like "p.jpgrestofname" 

 

Seeing the same thing in Lightroom when printing to a JPG file (screen shots attached).

When saving via "Save For Web" and start to typing the filename, for example: "file", the filename will be always broken and will look like "f.jpgile".

In the previous version of photoshop, the .jpg would be wiped away when you typed the file name... very annoying. Now with Photoshop 23 (on mac monterey), we still have a naming but, but it's even worse. What ?!?!?!?!. I pay $49/month for this? You should be embarrased Adobe.

So with the latest version PS/AI driving me crazy as I try to save my work, every time I'm trying to rename file in save dialog app randomly inserts extension somewhere in the box. Both in photoshop (22.5.2) & illustrator (26.0.1), MacOS 12.0.1. Ive reported it via twitter but of course Adobe didn't even replied.

What version of MacOS are you using? I'm not seeing that in Photoshop and MacOS Big Sur. Could it be caused by some utility that you have installed?

When I begin to type the word photo on a save as soon as I type the letter P the software adds the .jpg ending. It's driving me crazy.

I got my PS on my Mac with Monterey to do it twice. I can't repeat it every time and once I started typing and retyping, changing file format etc. it didn't do it anymore. I tried a bunch of times to get to do it. So there is something happening but for me it's not consistent.

Whenever saving a file in Photoshop, after typing a single letter it now automatically inserts the file extension after that first letter. So if I try to name something "Photo.jpg" for example, I'd type in "P" and automatically get "P.jpg" Meaning I was getting a lot of results like "P.jpghoto" when entering file names.

 

Tried to show in the attached screenshots - first screen shot shows the file name selected when save window opens (also somewhat annoying that no longer is the default when going through "Save As"), the second shot shows what happens after pressing the "P" key. Third shot shows what happens when trying to type in "Photo" as a file name.

 

Happens in both Save As and Save for Web. Using Photoshop v 23.0.1 on MacOS Monterey v 12.0.1.

Hello all.

 

To preface my questions, my setup is 2021 MBP on Monterey 12.0, using Photoshop Silicon 23.0.2 release (but this was happening on my previous release too). 

 

Now here's my issue (and I have video documentation of it):

When I go to save a file (any file, any file type) and the text dialogue opens up with the name of the file (be it existing, or untitled), as soon as I start typing, it places the first letter BEFORE the file type extension, then the rest AFTER the extension. So for example, if I go to save a new file this is what I see:

Untitled_1.psd

The entire text is highlighted (even the file type extension)

Let's say I go to type the name 'test' into this field as the file name. This is what appears on screen:

t.psdest

The letter t (first typed) goes before the file type, then the remaining letters 'est' go AFTER the psd extension.

 

Needless to say this is driving me insane. This is also effecting InDesign and Illustrator for me. The only way around it is to Command-A select all and type the file name (which removes the extension), or manually put my cursor into the spot and type - but by then my typing instinct has already kicked in and I now need to also delete everything I typed 'after' the extension.

Obviously any help appreciated, and wondering if this is a rarity as a search online hasn't yielded any results with others having this issue.

Hi there,

 

We're sorry about the trouble with Photoshop while saving a file.

 

Try resetting the preferences by: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html

Backup your preferences prior to resetting by: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/preferences.html#BackupPhotoshoppreferences

 

Let us know if that helps.

Hi Tarun,

 

reset the prefs as per your suggestion. Didn't work. 

 

I also noticed the following:

if I type the name (example above) and then use the keyboard to delete using backspace, more shenanigans.

 

I type t.psdest

then I use arrows on keyboard to go backwards to delete the 'est', and if I type at that point, I get this:

t.psdt.psd

this repeats upon every backspace to the end of the extension, so if I want, I can get it to do this:

t.psdt.psdt.psdt.psd

This has also been tested in InDesign and Illustrator - same thing happens.

Adobe spent over 2 hours remotely controlling my machine the other day and couldn't find the problem.  The problem DIDN'T occur when I signed in as a Test User so they suggested working in the test user mode and then transferring the files over.  Not the best idea
