OS X 10.7.3
CS 6 Beta
Open a raw file (CR2), not as smart object
Save (psd format is the default)
Save As: same name, but choose tiff format
Result: Save As dialogue adds "mpo" as an extension, and the next dialogue is one for JPGs.
1) loading a TIFF file and then trying to Save As a TIFF file with a different name has the same outcome.
2) Saving works properly with my TIFF files. Only Save As fails.
Hmmm. I have no plugins in the CS6 Plugins directory, and have the Additional Plugins Directory set to my CS5 plugins. Loading plugins reports no errors when CS6 starts. Also, there are no plugins in the Appplications Support / Adobe / CS6 or CS5 directories.
>> and have the Additional Plugins Directory set to my CS5 plugins.
And that's your mistake that's causing duplicated file format plugins.
Turn that preference off, or point it only to your third party plugins directory.
Just to clarify, you can't point your plugins to the plugins for an older version of CS5 and expect the program to work properly. In CS6, the default plugins are in a different directory in an effort to make it easier for you to tell what plugins are 3rd party and that you have installed separately. When you point your additional plugins folder to the CS5 plugins, you are pointing to duplicates of many default plugins, which does not make the Mac os very happy. If you make a new folder and set it as your additional plugins folder, you can install your 3rd party plugins there and you will not have the issue with duplicate files or the file save issue.
Hope that helps-

Okay. That did it. Where in the world are the CS6 default plugins? I did not see them in any of the usual places. In the past, I could easily avoid duplicating plugins, and the worst thing that ever happened was that a plugin would not load or CSx would tell me a particular plugin was not longer needed/used.
