Upgraded from CS4:
If I open a previously worked tiff file in CS6, and make some changes, instead of being able to click Control-S as before, and have it just save, now it comes up as save as, and I have to click 3 time,s as it asks if I want to overwrite it and have the same compression.
And if I just modify and press alt-control-W - which would ask if I wanted to save and if I chose yes, it would just save it, now it would default to save a tiff as a psd instead. Is this all necessary, all these extra steps?
Also if I have a group of images open, that I may or may not modify, and use the alt-control-W to close all when done, with CS4 it would stop on the unmodified image and ask if I want to save it. Now if there are unmodified ones, it asks this, but it doesn't stop to show that image, remaining instead on a different image, so I must look at the file name, which for me is usually just a number and name, that I do not have memorized for each similar image. So I might choose yes close, thinking it is one I am done with when it really isn't.
This is all such a step down in efficiency. Is there some preference to go back to the more sensible way?
I have not observed similar issues in CS6 so far, what is your Photoshop > Preferences > File Handling > Ask Before Saving Layered Tiff Files setting?
These were not layered tiffs, but I changed it anyway to not ask, but it made no difference.
In that case I can only recommend running the basic trouble-shooting procedures (trashing prefs by keeping command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift pressed while starting Photoshop, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.) … though whether they will have any effect is beyond me.
