I am trying to make edits to a file that I have Read & Write privileges for, but when I try to save the changes it says: 

You don’t own the file “xxxxx” and don’t have permission to write to it.

Hello there @MCorrie; thanks for joining our Community!

Can you please let me know if you're on a desktop device or a mobile one?

Also, can you send us a screenshot of the exact error so that we can have a visual too? 

Thanks so much!
