Hi There,

 

All of a sudden 'Save for web' won't save files to any disk on my system... "Save for web: Could not complete this operation. A write permissions error has occurred".

Have tried the following from other posts...

- Giving Photoshop full disk permissions

- Repairing permissions on all disks

- Restarting Photoshop

- Restaing Mac

 

But nothing works - does anyone know how to fix?

 

Cheers, Ben

 

- OSX 11.6.1

- Photoshop 23.0.1

OK, so aparantly this can happen if dropbox is set to sync your desktop (even though I wasn't trying to save to desktop). In Dropbox you have to turn off the backup feature. Dear Adobe, please fix. Over on the Dropbox forums, Dropbox blames you - maybe you guys to talk? Cheers
