Basically when i try and save/export something into a folder, i't'll give me an error.

So i save it to desktop, then try and move it, and this comes up

The folder is called "doabit colour"

and the file is the one with .pdf after it.

Do a get info (command-i) on the folder and look down at the bottom...what are the read-write permissions?
