Save/Replace Dialog asks me twice... Why?!

When saving over a file (a .jpg in this example) I get two different "do you want to replace..." dialogs that I have to click through. See screen shot.

Why? I don't remember this being the case before, and there is no reason for it. Please explain.

No problem on Win 10 with latest Ps release , it may be Mac specific or only on your machine. Can you specify versions of OS and Photoshop what can be useful when checking and trying to replicate the problem.

Latest OS and Photoshop. Catalina, and PS 21.0.2 (whatever that means).

Ok, will try, but any idea where the second dialog is coming from. Is it a Mac OS generated dialog, that errantly duplicates what was already asked from the first Photoshop generated dialog? And if so, they really can't fix that between Adobe and Apple.

 

Ugh... uneccesary verification dialogs are so rampant these days. Every devleoper thinks it's cool that they too can write a little code for "Program X wants to do something, close something, access something..."  In some cases it makes sense, like if you will lose data, but in most cases Yes just open, call, save, or close the damn thing. I can undo or reopen if it was a mistake.

My PS version is 21.1.0 and it still asks that confirmation twice. Not even an "Are you sure? Last chance ..." Just the same question.

I am not sure if I am missremebering; but I think there was a setting in older PC versions where you could choose between the WinOS file selector or the Adobe one. Don’t think the setting is still there though or maybe I am thinking of a different program. Nor am I certain that there is/was a similar setting in the Mac version. But it might be worth having a look at your Photoshop Preferences, might possibly be connected to your problem ... 🙂

Exact same issue for me - also I get an issue where if I'm trying to save over an old file, when you get that first 'Do you want to replace it' dialogue, you used to be able to just press the 'enter' key (making for a fast workflow if you're saving out a number of JPEGs from teh same PSD over existing ones), but now the 'cancel' button is the default and you have to use the mouse to physically click the 'replace' button

I have exactly the same issue and have had it for many years, through numerous PS versions and MacOS versions. Only in Save for web. I have no idea how to get rid of it.

Im using PS 21.2 on a Mac running OSX Catalina 10.15.5 and Photoshop when trying to replace a file, PS asks "Do you want to replace?", but then save s a COPY, so I have to manually delete the original file, and rename the copy. 

 

This did not happen to me before PS 2020.

 

Adobe - Please fix, as if you have to do lots of edits, this quickly becomes very tedious!!
