    At the right hand side of the 'Save as' box is a down arrow, if you click this you will get a finder window where you can select the destination of your file.

    I am afraid the down arrow only takes me to a selection of upper heirarchy folders which do not open That has been my problem. I am sure there is one quick, complete answer. I thought you had cracked it but I'm afraid not. But many thanks all the same.

    Thank you for your greetng. I am using Sierra at the moment on an iMac and the fault appeared suddenly and seems to affect all applications. I believe I must have slipped into some alternative programme inadvertantly and it will take a simple click to get me back to normal. Any advice would be greatly welcomed. RobS

    No worries.

    I have seen this issue previously, but want to try a few things before we go too deep in your hidden User Library folder.

    -Can you upload a screenshot, so we can see what the issue looks like?
    -I am sure you have tried a simple restart? ;)
