Ever since upgrading to Photoshop 2021 I've been getting this error message for a lot of different actions. Most recently it was caused by trying to merge layers but it also keeps me from saving files. It's been so bad that I've decided to downgrade back to Photoshop 2020. At this point Photoshop 2021 is completely unusable. Anyone else having this problem and has anyone else figured out a solution?

I am having the same issues.  I can only save if I turn off all layers and now I can not merge layers.

I am getting this too.  Very frustrating - get the perfecct image and cannot save it.  Works for a little bit, then suddenly goes crazy. Thinking it was memory, I purged everything, makes no difference.  Tried "save for web" to at leat get a jpg of my image, but got a white screen.  Weirdest is that when I rename the file I am getting Greek letters! Took screen shots to save some of the.  On a brand new iMac, everything updated.  Using a Wacom tablet... could there be a conflict? Hope to downgrade because the software is unusable like this
