I, too, have had several problems using Catalina. I cannot "Save Project". I get the following error message: " File I/O Error: Unable to creat directory: Read-only file system: tests.pxiproject". I talked to Apple Support concerning this problem and I was told that this was a known problem and that the Pixinsight people were working on it. The Apple technician explained that Catalina made this Read Only change to their operating system to prevent some other serious problems from happening to the operating system.
