How do I disable the Save As Copy box when saving as a PDF in Photoshop 2020?

When saving a PDF from Photoshop CC 2020, the "Save a Copy" box is automatically checked off in the Save Window. Prior to CC 2020 I could save over an existing PDF file without generating a copy each time without the "Save a Copy" box being checked, how do I disable it?

Hi there,

That does not sound good, could you please let us know the operating system you're working with?
At my end I am ablt to check or uncheck the Save as a Copy box as shown below:

Have you tried resetting the preferences of Photoshop and see if that helps?

Note: Make sure that you back up all your custom presets, brushes & actions before restoring Photoshop's preferences. Migrate presets, actions, and settings

Thank you for your quick reply. Following the info in your link, I created a default pref set and the problem seems to have gone away. Before this I kept unchecking the save as copy box in the PDF save window but it would keep resetting to checked.

Re: Hi there, That does not sound good, could you please let...

Looks like I spoke too soon. Here's what happened later in the day.....

I flattened the layers in my Photoshop file I was working on and saved it as a pdf file.

I went back into the Photoshop file to re-edit it and then went to resave as a pdf file, in an attempt to overwrite it. I get the ususal prompt "Do you want to overwrite..." to which I click yes, but I am not given the ability to

uncheck the Save as Copy box which has somehow turned itself on again. If I proceed with the save, I get a new pdf file with the same name as the original but with the word "copy" added to it. Now, I have to go back and trash the original pdf file, then highlight the file name with my cursor and delete the word "copy" so that it attains the name I originally wanted. I am really frustrated - this did not happen in the previous version of Photoshop, and I really wish this bug would get fixed.

Nope. I need to call someone in tech support. This keyboard ping pong hasn't worked.
