I want to add text on top of all pages after site[sharepoint 2013- on premise] title for that, I am trying to do changes in masterpage by taking the copy of master page html [seattle.html] file for 2013 site collection using Sharepoint designer. When trying to rename, not able to do that and automatically reverting to old name[seattle_copy(1).html] .I'm not getting any errors while trying to rename and able to do checkin ,checkout or open file in "Advanced Mode".

I have a site collection admin access.

Can any one help me on to resolve the issue.
