Summary0004073: [MacOSX Catalina] Unable to save (most likely due to security permissions)
DescriptionIf you close the start page, then try to save a file, No save as window opens. Looking at thee file history there's nothing there that the file even previously existed either.

I don't think asking for help will work since users don't really safe files outside of using command S or the File menu.
Steps To ReproduceMake a new file, draw something. Close the start window & save your document. No Save As window opens, no save happens. Search for a file "Untitled.FCStd" & nothing.

@Orcaman42 cant reproduce. How do you draw something without changing to another workbench (I'm still in Start WB). Also, next time please open a forum thread before opening a ticket (per our guidelines in the large yellow banner at the top of the page)

Hi!
I can confirm that issue. And I might know the reason: With MacOS Catalina Apple asks you to give every Application permissions to access your folders to read/write files. Usually a prompt opens and asks for adjustment of the security settings when the application is trying to access files for the first time. This prompt doesn't appear!
