Try using spaces instead of periods for all but .TIF

Hi @armando87510 

 

Periods are acceptable on macOS, but I'm not sure about Windows.

 

There used to be a limit of 31 or 32 characters on Macs back in the days that DOS / Windows had a limit of 8. Now it's 255, which includes the entire path, and you didn't tell us that part.

 

Because saving works when you save it to the Desktop, the most likely issue is a very long path. 

 

You can: 

  • count the characters in the path and filename (tedious!)
  • shorten the name by 10 or 20 characters at a time to see how far you need to go to be able to save (for testing)
  • shorten the names of some of the folders and sub folders in the path
  • decide which is more important: the file name or the folder names

 

You can see the entire path in Finder if you choose View > Show Path Bar from a Finder window.

 

Let us know if this helps or if you need further assistance.

 

~ Jane
