Customer Question
I'm working in iMovie...

I'm working in iMovie. When I try to share to file, I get a dialog box that says "Share failed" and when I go to details it says I cannot share to file because I don't have permission. I can share to Vimeo OK. But not to file.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of Apple device do you have? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

I'm running a new MacBook Pro, USB-C type inputs only. The operating system is 10.13.3

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your MacBook Pro? What have you tried so far?

This problem has cropped up every time I try to save a movie to file. Don't know what to try, really. I assume that iMovie knows what it is doing. Other functions of iMovie seem quite OK.

Technician's Assistant: The Mac Technician will be able to walk you through that. Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I believe I have explained the problem correctly.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
