Strangely, every time I click "save" in CS6 it opens up a 'Save As' window, (which shouldn't happen), then I click save witht the existing file name (it then tells me the doc already exists), I click OK, (and then OK to the next popup window) then get the message that "This file cannot be found". I'm forced to click "ok" and the doument isn't saved. I've tried saving it differently in previous versions and it still doesn't work. I recorded a video of this behavior. You can see it here - http://screencast.com/t/W1GYK0zsrk
Why would it be trying to find a file? It seems like an error message when trying to Open a doc, not Save a doc.
Please HELP!! I can't shutdown my station until I get the document to save.
No I cannot Save As with another name - I get the same message. And after editing the file, and clicking Save, I still get the message. I can, however, export (to .jpeg), and Save for Web (to .gif). I just can't save the original .ai doc.
Yes, Mohit1233 - it happened with every file yesterday. Finally, I closed the doc (forcing me to lose my work), then restarted my computer and today the problem is gone. I'm working on a PC (HP);
Barblove - I tried doing that yesterday (copying and pasting into a new doc), and still nothing. I also tried copying the work into a CS3 doc (but got an error message).
Well, I'm sorry to hear nothing helped save your work. I am reminded of my late father, who worked with computers since the Comodore 32, had a KC-1 (KayPro's version of IBM's PC-1) and on up through Windows 98; one of his favorite sayings goes: "No one mentions the word 'computer' without a 4-letter word in front of it!". It seems that still hasn't changed.
