The save file operation failed

#1

With the latest update I’ve been getting this error frequently enough to be annoying.

What if anything can be done?

Have you tried reverting to a freshly installed state? https://www.sublimetext.com/docs/3/revert.html
Which version of macOS and which version of Sublime Text are you using?

I came upon the same issue and can provide some more context:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open an existing file with .html.eex extension (syntax is “HTML (EEx)”)
  2. Copy everything in it (as text)
  3. Create a new blank file, paste
  4. Try to save - editor freezes for ~10s, displaying the message “The save file operation failed” as mentioned above

Does not happen with files of Markdown, Plain text or some of the other types/syntaxes I tried with.
Sublime console remains silent.
Workaround so far is to insert an extra step between 2 and 3 - paste into another text editor, and copy it from there (thus it carries no contextual information into sublime).

I am with Sublime text 3.2.2 (3211) on MacOS 10.15.1

Same issue for yaml files. Currently just changing the text review thingy from yaml to plain text and then saving. Here is a video: The screen recording doesn’t show the spinning beach ball. https://imgur.com/a/6c96mGO
