Thanks!
The one thing all those files seem to have in common, is that there is a space in their file names.
I can't really see how that would constitute a problem, but it's worth trying out...
Would you be able to check for me if saving in the root of the Documents folder (e.g. /Users/trobbe/Documents/) using a filename that contains no spaces, does consistently work ok?

I attempted to answer more of your question in a post that appears to have gotten lost. Under permissions it reads: "trobbe (Me) read Write"
The only app I can remamber adding since ST's is Nebulosity, but that was added 2-3 weeks prior to this problem. I will check further, in case I forgot something...
Sorry, this isn't going well, I really like ST's and worry I'm doing something stupid to cause this problem. Would it make any sense to try an older version of ST's? I also have an older Mac Desktop, but is limited as it will not take more than its 2.5 gigs of RAM, but I could try that...

Ivo,

For whatever reason I just tried another file with no spaces, and its there! It Saved! But, still there must be 12-20 other attempts that still have not showed. For now if i get 1 out of 20., that makes me hopeful...

or maybe it the forward slash? Anyhow I seem to be able to save consistently leaving out"/ " or "-". I'll figure it out. Anyhow, I'm happy now!!
Thanks for your patience, Ivo!

Best Regards, Tom :D
