Mac OS Save As file name highlight bug
Productivity killing bug in Illustrator 25.2.3, but not Photoshop 22.3.1!:
Mac OS (Catalina, currently) Save As dialog box highlights the entire file name, including the extension, which has been a bug the past several versions. For over a decade, Save As would not include the extension in the highlight, so one could tap the arrow key once to the end of the file name to change it, to increment a version number for example. This bug has been a huge stumbling block in my productivity.
Also, in Illustrator, the sometimes Save As does not highlight the file name at all AND the escape key does not dismiss the dialog box. Double bug!
Here are screen shots of the errors, with Photoshop doing the correct behavior and being the winner:

MACOS MONTEREY 12.0.1 WITH ILLUSTRATOR 26.0.1 STILL CONTINUING TO HAVE THIS ISSUE
SAME HERE -- STILL HAPPENING ON HIGH SIERRA WITH PHOTOSHOP 22.5 AND ILLUSTRATOR 25.4.1. PLEASE FIX IT.
Same here. macOS 11.5.1 / Adobe Illustrator 25.3.1
[on macOS] when saving files only the filename is selecetd, not the extension. It used to be fine with Adobe apps until some versions back suddenly the whole file name including extension is selected in the Save as dialog.
Adding some text used to be easy. With a tap on the right arrow key the cursor moved between de file name and the extension. When I do this now the cursor is placed after the extension so I have to use the mouse or left arrow key to move the cursor 3-4 positions back. This may be OK on Windows but it is definately not Mac behaviour.
Please fix it.
Enclosed is a sample how a Save as dialog should behave in macOS.
