Fireworks CS6 (

Mac 10.9.1


- create a png in Fw and save somewhere, close it.

- browse to it in Mac Finder in column view so you see the preview thumbnail

- double click (presuming pngs open in Fireworks), or right click and open in fireworks

- make some change then save


Fireworks pops an error message "The file is already open in another application" and won't save




switch to Finder and choose another file so it no longer showing the preview thumbnail

switch back to Fireworks and it will now save



Has anybody else seen this issue - is there a fix ?
