error when creating a new motif design

When creating a new motif fill, after creating a line drawing and choosing:
Object>
Create Motif>
choose Motif Set
Add Motif Name,
uncheck the Remove Color Changes
uncheck the Remove Other Functions
OK
I put in my reference line points ( the manual states: Click two reference points for the motif. These should coincide with entry and exit points.)
I continually get the error message Error Writing Motif

Am I missing a step? I have tried every variation I can think of - like leaving the Remove Color Changes and Remove Other Functions boxes checked and putting my reference line points in various positions.

I have been successful once but have not figured out what I am doing wrong the following times.

Thanks for any help! Diana

Can create a motif fine no issues. I clicked create to create the motif set.

Did you copy any motif's from a previous version of ES? Did you put them in the C:\ProgramData\Wilcom\EmbroideryStudio\MOTIFS?

Diana - Have you found a solution to this?

I have not created motifs in a very long time, but I am now running into the same scenario you mentioned. I am running e4.5.2 R2.

Edit note: The motifs I created in the past are there. I am trying to create new motifs and getting "Error writing Motif" message.

Are you trying to add it to an existing motif set or a new one?
What is the file location of the motif set it is being added to?

Issue seems to be related to the motif file or the folder.
Remove read only property of the folder and the motif file you want to create motif in.
