As the title says...  Open Pages, Create new document, click Save, the dialog box comes up, I give it a name and select the Desktop as the destination, click OK, the dialog box disappears for about a second and then I get the above message.


No way to save the doc.  I even copied the text, opened another new document, Renamed it and tried to save and same results.  It's a very simple document saved in Pages format, without involving iCloud so it should be as easy as it gets.  On top of that, I just want to Save.  Why is it trying to Open something???


I ended up having to copy the text into an email and sending it to myself in order to copy it into a SimpleText file.


Any ideas on what might have been going wrong?


MacBook Pro 13, OSX 10.8.2, current version of Pages.


Thanks much.
