The File Is Locked

I’ve been cutting and pasting the Sparkle app icon since the Finder is just showing a blank white icon. I can save the file one time, but the second time the finder is telling me I no longer have permissions. If I hit “Save Anyway” still no joy. The only way to save is to first Duplicate from the file menu.


Finder icon


Sparkle 3.0.2 (8334)
MacOS Catalina 10.15.7

While I don’t have an explanation for that, it also isn’t really something Sparkle related.

I forget, was Sparkle always a white page in the Finder??

No, that’s a macOS bug. At some point it will recognize the actual icon.
