What could cause this? I've been making patterns for Sims 3 in Paint Shop Pro X2, and for a while I was able to save them as dds files (yes, I have the plug-in and it's enabled). Suddenly it stopped working. For the past two days I haven't been able to save dds files at all. It will save other types of files, but not dds. When I click "Save As" it takes me to a screen where you see all the format options such as 24-bit RGB, 32-bit ARGB, etc, but the "save" option is greyed out and unclickable. Does anyone know why this could happen?

I did change some settings in File/Preferences/File Format Associations, but I'm starting to think that didn't have anything to do with the problem. I did an uninstall and reinstall of X2, and it didn't fix the problem.

I used this plug-in, which was referred to me by two different tutorials that used Paint Shop: http://www.fpsbanana.com/tools/download/650

Sorry ... never mind. I discovered that I was trying to save files that were 257X256. The program didn't like that odd size. My bad.
