Sadly the 'Save for Web' option keeps failing with 'An unknown error has ocurred' message. The only resolution to the problem is totally wiping every trace of PhotoShop from the Mac and reinstalling from the App Store. This happens across two different Macs with different MacOS versions and family members. It's also not possible to directly open a .psd file by double-clicking it in Finder - it just complains about the file being read only. You have to right-click the file and manually choose to open it with the editor instead. It's a shame, because the parts that do work are great and if you are familiar with PhotoShop of old it's an easy piece of software to use. It's just let down by the bugs.

A good start

For what I have done it has been good. I am using the Astropad connection for Ipad: first, there was some bugs but than developed for a good work.

I had a lot of overheating problems with my old Macbook Air and older version of this software. I changed to Macbook Pro 2019 and the latest software. Exactly the same issue when using the Organizer - my shiny new laptop reaches 100C at the first core within five minutes. Additionally really bad collaboration with network storage. I should buy a different software...
