This is just really bugging me - I work in Indesign CS5 and save file as a pdf. I open pdf too check ok and email to client. Then when I amend my Indesign file and resave over that pdf I get this message everytime:
Cannot save to the file "XXX" You may not have permission or the file may be in use.
And consequently, I have to go into the folder and delete it before I can save. It's not in use, it's definitely closed!
Does anyone else have this problem?
Same here Suzie - on my Mac all I'm doing is creating a simple PDF from ID. When I alter it and export as PDF, saving to the desktop to overwrite the previous version it goes through the motions - then up comes this message.
If Bill is assuming correctly that you're on Windows then its a Mac OSX problem too.
Acrobat is dormant here - only ID open.
Hi - thanks for replying - glad it's not just me! No I'm on a Mac too, OSX (6.8).
I feel like perhaps it needs an update to fix this bug but I wasn't sure if it was just mine being weird - now I know the probem is shared I shall investigate!
I had the same problem, then tried changing the view in windows explorer so that it doesn't show a preview (pane on right-hand side). It worked! I suspect enough of the document is actually 'open' when shown in this preview pane to prevent changes being saved.
