Can you please email me your fla to FlashAuthBetaBugs@adobe.com? Please note that our filter system cannot accept .zip file. If you are to zip your fla, please change the file extension from .zip to .zzz.
I ran into this problem myself on OSX but it seems it could be a permissions issue. Make sure you can write to your save destination. It worked for me.
Win7 64bit, flash 5.5, 11.5.1
Got a jobb from flash 4 age and trying to update there site but i got the same problem. Program frezzes, lose items in th e library and do dont know until its to late. I also notised that size of the fla file decreases then you know it´s the end.
Installing 4 now.
Thanks elmonty2! Your tip saved me! (Save As CS4 shook the bug away somehow)!
First time I've seen this issue today.
I had been working the same fla for the past 5 months without issue then today it suddenly comes up with the Save error.
My input textfields for a submission form stopped excepting things like@ # %$£
This was fine before. I checked the embed options and the font was not embedded (TNR font).
After I embedded the font and characters and went to save I got the error.
Turns out the the font embedded in the library had somehow become corrupt????
Anyways deleted the corrupt font and re-embedded now all good.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate and the CS6, but it also happened while running CS5.5. I have the same issue. I am forced to do a restore from a backup tape in order to get a later version. This has happened too many times to count and with multiple files. I am to the point of doing a copy paste to do a manual backup right in my development folder.
This is unacceptable AND never happened in CS3 or CS4.
I'm having this same problem. I recently upgraded to CS6 from CS4 and now my file keeps giving me the "unable to save" error. It's a pretty long animation file but nothing complex. A few blur filters and classic tweens but mostly keyframe animation. I'm honestly about ready to give up on flash for animation. Over the years it's given me a lot of trouble when used for classic animation purposes.
The project was created on my laptop in CS4 and I'm trying to work on it on a new desktop in CS6 (full disclosure) so I don't know if some output project path is creating this bug (it shouldn't since this file has zero scripting or linkage properties that I assigned)
I'm slowly rebuilding the file as a new file in CS6 so I can figure out what is causing it to flip out but with the buggy nature of flash I'll probably just give up and install CS4 on this new computer so I can try to finish my project.
We are encountering the same issue. We have muliple stations experiencing this problem.
CS5.5 version 188.8.131.529
We have done a uninstall and reboot then install clean verison and still getting error when saving.
Unable to save document as "z:\path\path\path\path\path\path\file.fla
Please try saving to a differnet filename or to a diffenet location.
Having the same issue, for multiple users across multiple machines. CS6, Win7 Enterprise. The Adobe "Known issues" page is less than helpful on this issue:
"Windows only: You can't save a FLA file in a Network/Desktop folder a second time after receiving an "unable to save" error message. To solve this issue, save the file as a FLA file instead. "
Basically says that if you're having trouble saving as an FLA, then save it as an FLA!
I need help at this thing I cant save ANYHING AT ALL its so frustrating omg
If you are saving to a network drive, you are more likely to face this issue. Try saving your project to a local drive and move it later to the network drive. Works like a charm.
If you are saving to a network drive, do that later and save your project to a local drive.
I'm having the same issues for the past week, I'm using Flash Pro CC2015 while my most of my colleagues are using Flash Pro CS6, can't really pinpoint the beginning of the problem though, it just started for me today, my colleague first experienced it last week. Do keep me updated should anyone in this find the answer for it. Thanks in advanced.
TODAY THE SAME THING HAPPENED WITH ME, THEN WITHOUT WASTING A MINUTE I COPIED ALL THE LAYERS OF MY FLA AND THEN PASTE IT TO NEW FILE. AND GUESS WHAT? THE PROBLEM GONE.
ALWAYS REMEMBER ONE THING - IF YOU ENCOUNTERED WITH THIS ERROR, DONT QUICKLY CLOSE YOUR FLA, AS YOU CANT RECOVER IT AFTER THAT. JUST COPY LAYERS (AS I HAVE MENTIONED IN THIS POST) AND MAKE A NEW FLA AND PASTE THOSE LAYERS IN THIS FLA. TRUST ME THIS IS THE EASIEST AND MOST RELIABLE WAY TO GET BACK YOUR PRECIOUS WORK. I HAVE TRIED THIS METHOD IN CS5.CS6 AND CC
P.S. I AM CURRENTLY USING CS6
