New Photoshop 2020: Problems with saving, cursor goes to AFTER ".jpeg" or ".psd"instead of before it

I am used to being able to change the filename of my images by pressing the right arrow and then adding something after the file name (but BEFORE ".jpeg" or ".psd"). Now with Ps 2020, I can't do that anymore. Every time I want to change the filename, I have to either click manually, or backspace in order to get to the right place.

 

Is there any way to change this? I know it's a detail, but it's annoying. Thanks for any help you can give!

 

Example:

"DSCF10.jpg"

before, changing to "DSCF10 1.jpg" was easy

now it becomes "DSCF10.jpg 1", which automates to "DSCF10.jpg1.jpg" - looks terrible

 

A report/request on such a problem with Mac OS Cataline exists, feel free to add your vote if it’s the same as yours:

Hi there,

 

Sorry that Photoshop is now is not navigating to the correct character space so that you can simply press the right arrow and add a file name. 

 

Please note that Photoshop only uses the operating system Save As dialog so if there is a recent change in the operating system, that might be causing the issue.

 

Also, which version of Photoshop and operating system are you using?

 

Thanks,

Akash

Hi Akash,

I do not believe this is a Catalina problem. 

 

I'm on Catalina, and can replicate the problem throughout the 2020 suite, but the behavior is completely fine on Photoshop 2019: I can confirm that right arrow goes to end of filename, NOT end of extension.

Hi, I've had this problem too since upgrading to MacOS Catalina - very annoying I agree!

I have discovered a way around it that you could try, which I found helps...

 

When the "Save As" window opens press the Left Arrow Key (the cursor will move to the start of the filename).

Next, hold the Alt key then press the Right Arrow Key and the cursor should go to the end of the filename.

 

It's not perfect but it's better than manually moving the cursor back across the extension (.jpg).

Hope this helps until there is another solution!!

Loads of people are reporting the same problem at the link given above, but Adobe is doing nothing to fix the issue.
