Mac OS Save As file name highlight bug
Productivity killing bug in InDesign 16.2.1 AND Illustrator 25.2.3 (but not Photoshop 22.3.1!!):
Mac OS (Catalina, currently) Save As dialog box highlights the entire file name, including the extension, which has been a bug the past several versions. For over a decade, Save As would not include the extension in the highlight, so one could tap the arrow key once to the end of the file name to change it, to increment a version number for example. This bug has been a huge stumbling block in my productivity.
Also, in InDesign, the sometimes Save As does not highlight the file name at all AND the escape key does not dismiss the dialog box. Double bug!
Here are screen shots of the errors, with only Photoshop doing the correct behavior and being the winner:

Was hoping this was fixed with upgrade to Big Sur 11.3.1, but now ID 16.2.1, AI 25.2.3 and PS 22.4.1 all highlight the extension when doing a save as.
Bugger, such an annoying time kill.
