At the moment I have no interest in upgrading my version of Nik (v1 by DxO) thus, in Affinity Photo v1.8.3, when the upgrade nag dialog appears I wish to choose ‘later’. However, when I click the ‘later’ option nothing appears to happen and the entire application appears to lock up, implying the only way out is to resort to Task Manager in order to ‘end task’.
I emphasise ‘appears’ because if you don’t resort to the nuclear Task Manager option then eventually the nag screen does go away and you can carry on. This application freezing behaviour is very annoying, especially as the nag screen returns.
I accept that DxO want to advertise their latest and greatest product but it would more effective if their advert reacted to and respected the choice of users in a more considerate manner.
PS curiously as yet I’ve not seen the upgrade nag dialog when starting Nik from within PL3
