    All my save actions fail after the last CC update. I get an error message

    "Could not save because the filename was not valid"

    If I save it manually it works fine. Any ideas?

    That’s interesting. It sounds like a bug that they would want to correct quickly. Unless someone else knows something I would not change anything as I would expect it to get corrected.

    Right, and I am also getting the very slow response when opening PS as Jameel reported.

    Can you try creating a new action which includes save and see if it works. I tried it and it works for me. The performance part is another matter.

    I have rebuilt some actions several times. I also went back two revs of Photoshop and it still fails. I am wondering if it's a Microsoft issue.

    I just did an update to Photoshop V21.1.1 and my save actions are working again, The load is also much faster.
