Hello all,

This must be a relatively new issue as a search of the web yields no results.

I am taking screenshots of items on my desktop and if you push:
⌘ Command + “Shift“ while in Preview a menu appears top-left so you can write text or circle object in various colors.

After I do so, I go to Save the doc and I get a warning sometimes:
"the document screenshot is on a volume to which it cannot be saved"
and then the warning:
"the location of the document "screen shot" cannot be determined . . . "

Is anyone else getting this when they try to save an altered doc in Preview.

I'm going to Repair Permissions now
QUOTE Thanks
