CC Photoshop is not saving my workspace preferences as I close files. I am using a Mac version 10.12.6. I can save files, but as I close the files afterward I get this error.
I am the administrator and I have gone through and changed/checked that the rights to my various folders are set to read/write, but I am still getting this error. I bought a backup drive and have saved files to it as well and still get this error upon closing files.
As well I am getting the error "Could not save preferences because the file is locked, you do not have necessary access permissions, or another program is using the file".
I do not use a mac. It sound to me thought is may a permissions problem. Check the folders permission settings for all users inclunding administrators. What other application would be locking the file you are trying to write. They are a Phototoshop's version user files. Do you have more then one copy of the same Photosho version running. Is that posible on a Mac it is not on a windows machine.
Does closing a file write anything to the file. I would think it close would just free up resources and unlock the backing file if locked. Photoshop is not a file editor it edits dicuments and a document may have a backing file if opened from a file or a file has beem saved.
