I have a problem with NIK 6 and I hope that you can help.
I purchased and installed NIK Collection 6 today. I already worked with NIK 5. Using Mac OSX 13.3.1 (Venture) on a Mac mini M2 Pro, 32GB. Version 5 was fine!
When I start f.e. Color Efex Pro 6 as a native app, I am only offered “Save Preset” in the bottom right corner. The “Apply” button I am still used to from version 5 is missing. I’m able to save with cmd+s in this case, but it is unfamiliar. Is it supposed to be like this?
When I launch Color Efex Pro 6 as a plugin from Affinity Photo 2, the screen looks exactly as described above. The apply button is missing. I’m able call cmd+s and I also see the progress bar, however the plugin then hangs reproducibly after the progress bar has reached 100%. Then I can only cancel the plugin via “force quit”.
I’m experiencing the same problem with Nik Collection 6.
Using Mac OSX Ventura 13.3.1 (a) on 2019 iMac w/ 8 cores and Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB graphics and 32 GB memory.
I purchased & installed it yesterday, and successfully used Color Efex Pro 6 one time.
However, last evening I updated from Affinity Photo V2 to Affinity Photo V2.1, and today all of the Nik Collection 6 plugins are missing the “Apply” button.
As described by @MartinHH without the “Apply” button available, I also observed that using Cmd+S to save caused Nik Collection 6 to become unresponsive, requiring me to use “Force Quit” to abort.
I’ve used Nik Collection 3, 4 & 5, and hope that a fix is forthcoming soon.
Please advise, thanks.
Yes, Nik Collection 6 works with previous AP versions, just not APV2.1.
In the Affinity Forum, it appears they’re aware of the issue, as well.
Here’s a screenshot I captured while using APV2.1, wherein the “Apply” button is missing:
I have the same problem. It only happens with the latest Affinity 2.1 update. The older Affinity 2.0 worked fine. v2.1 also works with Nik 5. It is specific to those 2 versions. Unfortunately I don’t know how to roll back an Affinity release and having paid for Nik 6(and like it a lot!) I don’t want to revert to v5.
I experienced the same issue today. I had recently updated my Affinity Photo to v.2.1, and started trialling Nik 6 today.
I reported this on the Affinity Photo forum, and meanwhile I rolled back to Affinity Photo v.2.0.4, without uninstalling and reinstalling Nik6. My trial version of Nik 6 seems to be working fine now.
