I've placed a number of jpg and png files on my desktop. When I try to open them up in Pixelmator (3.9 classic) I get the same error code over and over. This has only happened since I updated to OSX Catalina. Is there some kind of permission structure that's not letting these get imported? Those same files that aren't opening do function fine in Preview and in other editors. Help! Image

Hi there, the first thing I'd suggest trying is quitting and reopening Pixelmator. If that doesn't help, I'd say try restarting your Mac. And if that doesn't help, well, then it would be great if you could email us at support@pixelmator.com so we could investigate!

The reboot seems to have sorted it. Thanks!
