Unable to save drawing in autocad

So I have a new iMac and im running the student version of autocad2013, I can open files up no problem, but when I try to rename and save the new drawing nothing happens. the save as box will disapear as if the file was saving, then pop back up. the files are not saving under the new name or the new file, but as long as i dont rename the template file it will save the drawing. what frustrates me the most is there is no error message, so I really dont know what im doing wrong.

any advice would help thanks!

Hi,

Where are you trying to save DWG file under new name? Is it local HDD, or somewhere on network, or external disk?

What if you save the file with a new name in the exact same folder as the original file?

I changed it to save on the desktop, and it saved the file, but it still wont save in that specific folder.

What specific folder? Do you have write permissions for this folder? Does this folder have some specific characters in it's name?
