Hej! The old photoshop behaviour used to be that when you save to overwrite an existing file it asks you to confirm that you want to replace it, you say yes, and the old file gets overwritten. In the latest version if you click "replace" it still does not replace the file, but adds "copy of" text at the end after the fact without any way to not do that. Please give us an option to have the old behaviour, or change it back to how it used to be by default.
I'm having the same problem as well. This is the issue I'm experienccing:
File saved as divider.png.
Make edits and save again as divider.png.
Photoshop says a file with that name already exists , do you want to replace it?
I say Yes.
Photoshop says : Could not complete your requeest because of a program error.
PLEASE FIX THIS. It's so frustrating and makes me want to cry.
Uninstal this photoshop version and then reinstall again. I'm sure it will work.
same here, it is driving me crazy
Whever is managing this thread on adobe's end doesn't seem to understand that this is a bug. Here's a video I took showing it happening clearly. In the video, you can see me select to replace the file. See the window ask if it's ok to be replaced, then see that it makes a new copy instead.
VIDEO OF BUG:
Same here ... Catalina 10.15.5 and PS 21.1.3 ... annoying as f**k. Any news on a fix?
Yep, so they fixed it a few months ago and now with the update, here we are again not able to save over files!@@!!!! I can't work like thisv!!!!! Arrrrrgh Adobe please sort this out immediately. This is basic stuff that is requierd for every use of the app. This is unusable.
I am also finding it impossible to overwrite a file.
I can only save "As a copy" or save as "Layers". It won't let me uncheck both as I used to since forever.
