I used to be able to hit save for web and would add .jpg extension everytime I saved it as a jpg. Now it highlights the entire file name (including the filename) so I have to manually add ".jpg" everytime before I save. Is there a way to add this feature? Photoshop used to do this automatically but now it doesn't...
What is your Photoshop > Preferences > File Handling > Append File Extension setting?
With that setting Photoshop should add the correct extension anyway, so I am unsure what the problem is.
Could you post a screenshot of the offending dialog window to clarify?
For example this is the dialog that appears. It used to highlight just "T2_ab" and not the .jpg extension as well. If I want to rename the file I have to manually type example.jpg instead of just being able to type example. Let me know if that makes sense thanks!
Ah, now I understand; I had thought the extension was missing altogether in your dialog window.
But I get the same behaviour (21.0.3 on Mac OS 10.15.2).
No proper solution but arrow-left and cmd-shift-arrow-right (as many times as necessary to select the name up to the period) might be slightly more convenient than typing ».jpg«.
Yes.. this behaviour needs to be fixed.. I think its not like this on Windows..
this is still the same for me at MAC. have you any update on this issue?
2021 and it's still not fixed. Is there anyone who has a solution?
Sure, by solution = workaround:
