When is Adobe going to fix the save as/over write feature when saving?

This has reaked havoc on production. When you edit a graphic (embedded in After Effects for instance) and you save, select replace it "used to" over right the existing file. Jump back to After Effects and the file instantly updates with the edit.

 

Now, even when you get a warning that the existing file is going to be written over, it saves a new document appended with "copy" - so what's the purpose of having a warning (in red no less) that the file is going to be written over when it in fact, doesn't?

 

To have the AE file replaced now, you need to open a finder window, locate the file, delete the original and remove "copy" from the edited version and you're where you used to be by saving a file. This needs to be done EVERY TIME you edit a graphic.

 

I started using PS in the 80's on version 1.0 and this is the least needed "feature" I've ever seen implemented.

 

What's more, I've seen countless people complaining about this all over the internet. Has Adobe stopped listening to what clients want? Come on Adobe, put this back to the way it was or at least give us a preference option to put it back manually. You ask us if we would recommend your products to others when we launch an app. Not if you keep adding "features" that slow production.

 

If an option exists to return this to the original saving method, please point me to it. VERY frustrating.

After about 5000 threads on this issue during the last year or so, I gave up trying to keep track.

 

But since this doesn't, and never ever has, happened on my two Windows systems, I have a distinct feeling that this is a MacOS issue. I'd like to know, just out of general curiosity - have you tried to save over a jpeg from other applications? Not the MacOS native apps, but other third party imaging applications? Do they all do this, or is it just Photoshop?

 

Just curious.

I created this thread over a year ago, updated PS multiple times since and this is STILL not resolved. Why not? If this is the direction of software updates you can have it. I'm SO glad I'm nearing the end of my professional career. I can't stand crap like this and what's worse, clearly Adobe knows this is an issue and refuses to address it. If I'm mistaken, I apologize for the rant. If there's a fix, an option or information for a workaround please point my to it. If not shame on Adobe for ignoring the people who earn their living with your products and keep your company going by buying them.
