    Hey everyone. Ran into an odd issue yesterday.

    We have a user at one of our graphics locations that recently upgraded to a new iMac with 10.7 since her old machine died. They have multiple network drives that they use. These are windows 2003 R2 servers.

    On 10.6 if they had a PDF open in Acrobat or a Quark job open (one that they opened from the server)... they could just do a command + s and save the file to the same location. Now, when they do a command + s it brings up the save as window and they have to navigate back to the folder where the original file was stored. In some instances, there are so many jobs and multiple versions of the job for a customer, that can take a long time to navigate back.

    Is there a quick setting to turn this off or is this something new that was implemented in 10.7 that they need to deal with?

    Lion changed how shares are working locking them down further. Once authenticated you should see the share in the left pane of the finder window.

    Once that's there, you should be able to hit command+s to save. I connect to a NAS and never had a problem with saving my work to the shared drive.

    W2K3R2 is a bit long in the tooth as well, so there may be some incompatibilities between Lion and windows.
