I'm getting this warning in Text Edit after I name and hit 'Save'


--"The document “Untitled 2” could not be saved as “Untitled 2test”. You don’t have permission."--



blah blah..this came out of nowhere..I use Text Edit a lot and this started happening yesterday..no recent changes to my computer at all
starting to develop a stack of important docs that i can't save..

I know you said it just started happening without you doing anything, but select Textedit in your applications folder and do a get info. At the bottom of the page you see an item about permissions. Make sure you have them.

I meant at the bottom of the window that opens.

Do the same check for each folder (directory) where you are trying to save files. You need read, write, and (execute (for files) or search (for directories)).
