I'm trying to use Ctrl P to Edit all layers in external editor via Photoshop but all i get is the cannot write file error. I'm using version 4.8.18. Windows 10. It says its up to date.
Same thing happens if i open as Admin.

Did you install the software as an administrator? Is there any antivirus blocking the program?

It was installed as Admin, I'll try the action with the anti virus turned off.
It creates the folder but doesn't do anything with it i think.

Edit: Still has the same issue with the anti virus turned off

Edit > Preferences > External 2D Editor

2D editor application is pointed correctly ?

If yes and still is not working please send support-related question to Andrew Shpagin at

The app directory is fine and it opens Photoshop but not with the associated file. I'll try a few more approaches and if i can't fix it i'll send an email.

Thanks!

Excuse me for not being more helpful. I do not remember a similar problem reported.

No worries! I had a look through google and these forums and couldn't find a similar issue either.

Thanks for your time ^_^

That CAN'T be a valid path with a forward slash "\" can it?   I'd focus on that as the issue.

I tried using the command prompt to redirect writing the file elsewhere but the same error comes up trying the original directory still. I may not have done the link properly though.

Hi

 
Probably access to Documents folder locked. It may happen if Google/Sky/... drive attached to Documents folder.
Try to run 3D-Coat as Administrator.

Try to relocate 3D-Coat's data to some other folder. Create the file

3D-Coat-install-folder\coat_data_path.txt

and put there the path to data folder, for example

c:\3dcoat_data\

I don't think i understand what your asking. I tried reinstalling 3D coat into another drive but that didn't work.

It still tries to write to the documents folder.

Are you sure you created 

coat_data_path.txt

not

coat_data_path.txt.txt ?

From the screen it looks like second one, but not sure.

Yeah it is right, it just displays it on the side.

Not understood. Usually explorer shows all extensions (if you set [x] Show extensions) or skips extensions in other case (it shows only extensions of unknown types).

In your case I see that this option unchecked (.exe not shown). But I see coat_data_path.txt instead of coat_data_path
It means you created coat_data_path.txt.txt instead of coat_data_path.txt.

Just rename coat_data_path.txt -> coat_data_path

Ohhh you were right! my bad, copy and pasted the text so it doubled.

What needs to be in the text file? the directory it's attempting to write the temp file for Photoshop or something else?

There should be path to folder that keep 3d-coat's different work data - scenes, settings, brushes etc...

Like

c:\3dcoat_data\

That related stuff appears to be in the Documents folder. c:\3dcoat_data\ doesn't exist. or in the drive where the install folder is

You need to create that folder manually.
