This is odd behavior and I'm not sure why it's happening. I open a jpg or png file, crop it and want to save the cropped image but I can't. When I go to the File menu the Save and Export options are greyed out. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but it seems like I should be able to do something that simple, simply.

I'm using the App Store version of Pixelmator Pro 1.5.3 Avalon

Any suggestions or help, even telling me I need to go read the doc, would help. In the meantime I'm going to read the doc.

Ok, I did not realize I needed to close the cropping operation. I was able to get it to work by selecting the crop tool, cropping the image and then selecting the crop tool again which closes the cropping operation.

Easier with "Apply", bottom right of the window. I sometimes found it frustrating with PixPro not doing what I wanted because I had not "completed" or "applied" my previous operation.

By the way, you can also press the Return key to apply any (semi-)destructive action like this.
