Photoshop: Save for Web - File name and extension highlighted on macOS

As has been reported previously, a problem confined only to macOS Catalina, where Save for Web highlights the whole file name plus extension in the save for web dialog is now an issue on macOS Mojave as well with the new photoshop 2020 (ps ver 22.0).

https://feedback.photoshop.com/conversations/photoshop/photoshop-file-name-and-extension-highlight-when-saving-on-macos-1015-catalina/5f5f460f4b561a3d427139dd

The save for web dialog is only supposed to highlight the file name so when a user changes the name the extension stays the same. However, when the file name plus extension is highlighted, changing the file name deletes the extension rendering the file unusable in such places as this very forum.

When saving for web, Photoshop 22.2.0 highlights the entire filename, including the extension, so unless you adjust the selection before typing, you will have to retype the extension every time.

When I "Save For Web" the filename and extension are both highlighted, so when I type the filename, it erases the extension. I use this everyday for my work and it drives me absolutely bonkers. At this point, its not only the time it takes to add the extension manually, but the frustration that you have known about this for at least two years and have not fixed it.

So, Im going full Shawshank and  am writing to let you know that I will be posting every weekday about this bug until it is fixed. I have used your products since version 2 and have spent countless thousands of dollars on your software. I do not feel that this is a big ask. Thank you in advance for your consideration.

This might not sound like much of a problem but it's costing me and others a huge amount of time. When I open a file and choose to Save for Web the whole name of the file is selected, including .jpg or .png. This means I need to unselect the filename and carefully reselect it without highlighting the file extension. Some files have really long names that are wider than the window displays so you have to scroll and then carefully edit the name. Doesn't sound like much but when you do this a couple of hundred times a day on some days it costs a huge amount of time and massive frustration. 

I've been using Photoshop since V2 in 1991. This has never happened until PS21. I used it on Mojave and now in Big Sur it's the same (2 different Macs). I see a lot of people complaining and it never gets fixed. 

I'm now looking at Photoshop alternatives and have just purchased Affinity Photo which you'll be delighted to know does not do this (and is actually rather good). Please fix it!

Are admins deleting my posts without even responding? I have posted several times about this, but only two of them show up in my profile.

OH HAI! Im appreciative that this is being tracked, but wonder if you can let us all know if any work is being done to resolve the issue. It may seem like a simple thing, but as someone that exports for web every day, it truly is maddening.

Thanks in advance for any info regarding a solution!!!
