Nik v6 worked great on Affinity Photo 2.0 BUT Affinity just released an update to 2.1.
After updating Nik6 still launches but the Cancel/Brush/Accept buttons don;t show up.
I tried rverting to Nik 5 and all worked perfectly, reinstalled Nik 6 and its broke.
So it seems to be an integration issue betwen Affinity Photo 2.1 and Nik 6.
Having paid for the v6 upgrade I’m reluctant to downgrade to v5 again, but that’s the only one that currently works with Affinity…
the problem is that you installed a first day release update. lesson that I learned, always wait 2-3 days and check forum see if there is any issues, specially with 2 different software update within days apart… reverting to nik 5 won’t fix the problem, going back to v2 instead of v2.1 should fix it though as it work fine.
that’s probably going to be a week before it’s fixed.
Same issues with AP v2.1 and Nik Collection 6 under the latest version of Monterey–no “Cancel” / “Brush” / “Apply” buttons, all the “v6” apps don’t return control back to AP, and what looks like older versions of the app–HDR Efex, Sharpener, etc–simply don’t run at all. I sure wish I could return to AP v2.0, but I don’t think I can do this through the Mac App Store and I don’t have a recent backup. My bad on the latter!
yep, that’s the problem from the App Store, you get only the latest version.
you can use Time Machine, that way you’ll go back in time before you installed them, just another option for you as you don’t have the last installer.
I already have an Affinity account. Are you suggesting that I can bypass the App Store and download v2.0 direct from Serif? I always thought that if you bought an app through the App Store, you were locked in? Boxing or whatever they call it?
you can actually, easier than what @Alan9940 posted actually.
login in your serif account and go in oder history, you’ll find all version you bought and download them again, from App Store or Serif website.
about uninstalling nik6, I think you can just run the installer again and it will overwrite the existing anyway plus install in AP.
Not true in my case, if we’re talking about logging into affinity.serif.com. The only items that show up in my Order History or Product Downloads is the stuff I bought directly from Serif. AP v1 nor v2 that I bought through the Mac App Store are listed anywhere on my Serif account.
I, too, always thought that I couldn’t download and install any app from the maker, if it was originally purchased through the App Store. Don’t know if it’s just me or Serif has a different arrangement, but it worked and I’m a happy camper!
You’re probably right that one can simpy re-run the Nik installer, but I’ve had it drilled into my head for so many years by DxO to make sure you run the Uninstaller before installing the suite. That could only apply to, say, moving from v5 to v6 but it certainly doesn’t hurt to uninstall first.
hahaha yes login not losing =/ (auto-correct)
I was saying that because after checking my serif account I saw I could download them all, my first AP purchase was from App Store, then I went to serif website instead due to conflict for downloading from one another.
Interesting. So weird that it’s different for different people. Either way, anybody having issues with AP 2.1 can revert back and get things working. Hopefully, DxO and/or Serif will get this issue resolved soon.
