File won't SAVE nor SAVE AS; only SAVE AS COPY
Working on MacBook Pro, Catalina OS, Illustrator 25.2
The "SAVE" file is not an option. Whether an existing (an existing file with or without changes), or a new file - I cannot "SAVE".
The "SAVE AS" option looks to be available, but then it does not work.
The only thing that is a workable option is "SAVE AS COPY". Which is nonsense. This just started happening and I can't fix it. I've tried uninstalling Illustrator and re-installing. No change.
This is completely unacceptable and I've wasted 3 hours of precious deadline time trying to figure this out. HELP!!!
I have the same issues on same version 25.2
I get an error message
"an error occurred cannot save the file"
I'm just using a local HDD and not a SAN, NAS , Cloud etc..
