Hi, 
I often tab between fileds in the dialogue boxes, especially the file-name field when doing a Save As or Export, to rename my new document. Tabbing to the name filed highlights the current name, and when the user types, it replaces the file name. HOWEVER, in the previous verion of Photoshop, when tabbing to the name field, ONLY the file name would be highlighted, leaving the file extension (.psd, .jpg, etc) in tact. NOW when I tab to the name field, the entie file name, including extension is highlighted. So when I type, it removes the file extension in the name. Which is problematic for display on many platforms. So I have to manually type in in. This is VERY time consuming and so frustrating because it used to work. 
Any ideas?
Thanks!
