I have Pixelmator 3.9.2. now running OS 10.15.7.

Most of my work involves files on chips from cameras. Since updating to Catalina, I have the following problem.

While editing a file, the message pops up:

This document could not be autosaved. You don’t have permission…..

If I try to Revert Changes, I get: You don’t have permission to save the file …

The same message comes up if I try to just Save.

I also sometimes get the Pixelmator dialogue box saying:

The operation couldn't be completed.
(PTImageIOErrorDomain error 2000).

But Get Info for the chips say: You have custom access.

And Sharing and permissions for the files I'm trying to save or revert always says: You can Read and Write.


Thanks,
David

I have been experiencing the same problem. I can save once, but if I leave the app open and come back later it says "You don't own the file...you don't have permission to write to it.

Hey Anne, are you to reproduce this consistently? If you haven't done so already, perhaps restarting your Mac would work here.
