    Why can't I save a New Workspace?

    Babington.co Level 1

      I just switched from Ps CS6 to Ps CC and I downloaded the update to latest version. Now I can not save a New Workspace. Please help. Thanks.

          What operating system?


          Are you able to save changes to Preferences?  (close and reopen OS and the changes still stand)


          It sounds like a permissions issue - especially if you are using a Mac as we have seen a few such cases.

              What OS are you running? I have read some Mac user have problems doing some things because of file system permissions.

                Okay, just solved this problem thanks to Live Chat. It is indeed a permissions issue. We went to the ~/Library folder, then to Application Support/Adobe, then set all permissions to Read&Write, PLUS we hit the + key and did the same for all available accounts. Then we performed this same maneuver in the /Library/Application Support/Adobe folder, then again in the ~/Library/Preferences folder. Three folders in all. Make sure you hit that + key, that's where my permissions were not set to Read&Write. Hope this helps anyone in the same boat.


                And by the way am running OS X 10.7.5, Photoshop CC 14.2.1.

                  This is a little old, but this worked for me in Photoshop CS6 Extended 13.0 running Yosemite.  Thanks riskypotato
