Halion Sonic 2 cannot save programs or multis

Hi, have HS 2 and having got a little more familiar with it i am now looking to save multis etc, the inbuilt dialogue comes up where you can name your file and set attributes etc, but the left part of the windows is blank, i cant create a new folder there either?
When i click ok it just flashes back to where i am, only way out is to cancel, also i have hypersonic and the multi saving there is borked also,these are the only programs where i am having this issue, i am on mac osx mavericks, suspect some king of permissions issue or something, have mailed support but not had an answer.
Any one got any ideas or had similar?
