Getting a warning about permission to save the files in a folder

What I did:

  1. File > Export > Markdown (or any type)
  2. Select a location on your drive
  3. Choose ‘Select Category’
  4. Choose ‘Each Note in a Single File’
  5. Click ‘Save’

What happened:

It appears that the export is attempting, but then you get the message.

“You don’t have permission to save the file “CHECKLISTS” in the folder “CHECKLISTS”.
To view or change permissions, select the item in the Finder and choose File > Get Info.”

What I expected:

I expected a folder to be created and the exported files added to the folder.

Things that might be helpful to know (Agenda version, OS and model, etc):

Agenda 14.1.1
macOS Monterey 12.5
MacBook Pro 16 inch (2019), 1 TB, 16 GB
I just formatted the hard drive and reinstalled macOS Monterey.

Thanks for your help!

Hello, does anyone from Momenta have any idea about this issue?

Well, I guess I will remove the app and cancel subscription since I cannot get any response from the developers.

They’re a very small team @terryhatmaker - I suspect they just missed your post. Hold on for a bit - I’m tagging @drewmccormack for you!

I just went back to see if this would work on an external drive and it did. So, I tried on my Desktop again and exporting is working again with the creation of folders! Not sure what happened to it to work again. This is fixed.

Ah, glad to hear you managed to solve it! Let me know if you find out more about why it didn’t work before.
