Save for web can't paste name...

Hi

 

I think this is since the last version of Mac OS, but now when using "save for web", I cannot paste any name inside the file name input. I try to paste, again and again and nothing happens...

 

this is very boring, I export hundreds of images for clients websites, for some, only the suffix changes and if I can't paste the first part it's quite boring and VERY time consuming to retype it all.

 

I open my clients images with the script to save filenames as layers names, so I can select it, press my action key, then it exports 4-5 different formats. When making an update, I have up to ten new layers to export in each format.

 

Example:

original name: my-picture-of-my-super-product-2020 (becomes the name of the layer on open)

Exported names:

my-picture-of-my-super-product-2020_preview.jpg

my-picture-of-my-super-product-2020_thumb@2x.jpg

my-picture-of-my-super-product-2020_thumb.jpg

my-picture-of-my-super-product-2020_mobile.jpg

etc.

 

so if I can paste "my-picture-of-my-super-product-2020" in the filename, I just need to add the suffix ("_preview"...). But now I can't anymore... and need to retype all each time... Not cool!!

 

Plus, the preselection is also on the extension. Before I was just the name, not the extension. So not only I need to type the complete name each time, but also the extesion...

 

See capture below (here, paste does NOT work at all)

I updated Photoshop to 2020 right now, hoping it would solve the bug. No chance and no changes...

 

thanks in advance for your help

Dear AdobeSupport,

 

FYI, I'm not paying 60 bucks a month for 3 years, plus 17 years of licences just for buying the new tires of your cars... It might disappoint you, but I'm also expecting some kind of support... which I don't seem to get until now!

 

so, can anyone take a minute, make his job, and tell me something ?

Thanks in advance

 

A not very happy customer

I have this same issue. Photoshop 2020 on Catalina 10.15.1. This is killing my work flow and costing me so much time. I can't believe Adobe hasen't addressed this in nearly 3 months.

Having the same issue too (in Photoshop 2020 on Catalina 10.15.2). Hope this will soon be solved since it's very annoying!

I have the same issue and while doing research I came across many more people with the same problem. And it seems that Adobe is doing absolutely nothing, not even commenting on the problem. I'm sick of it. I've been working with Adobe software on the Mac since 1998, but it's never been as annoying as it is today. And it just seems to get worse.
