Save for WEB makes main window unaccessible
Open Save for WEB => change the Image Size => hit Enter. Sometimes the next window popups invisible and I have no access to it. Thus it is impossible to close the Save dialog and get back to the artwork. Anywhere I click I only hear the ding sound (meaning like I have to confirm or cancel something first).
Save for Web window is inaccessible with mouse too: I cant resize it or interact with any of its UI elements. I can move it tho.
But I can jump elements with the Tab button. With Tab, if I hit Enter while any of the UI elements is highlighted its only pops up a save window (titled as 'Save optimized As'). Then I am able to save the image but I still can not close the Save for WEB dialog so it is impossible to return to work. I must only force close the App with OS dialog.
I can browse the Illustrator menu but all items are grayed out.
It's a sort of rare bug but I've faced it twice for the last two weeks.

Tracy, you say the S4W is no longer listed in the menu?
It is for me. As far as I know, the team had no plans of removing it.
Can you recheck it, please? What version of Ai are you using?

Looks like Adobe is moving from the Save For Web/Save Optimized As dialogue to the Export for Screens method instead. Save For Web is no longer on the menu, but the old shortcut still produces a window that is next to impossible to navigate.
This seems to be the new way to do this.
