I am running version 1.7 of Affinity photo, and last week Silver Efex Pro 2 worked fine. I tried using it last night, and kept getting a window popup saying "Updating Fonts". It rendered the whole program unusable, and I had to force quit AP. Is anyone else having these problems? I am hesitant to do anything as I am using the Google version of Nik, and I am not sure the plugins will work with Affinity Photo now that DoX owns Nik. I love AP, and don't want to move to DoX, so I hope it works. I have no problem paying for Nik plugins, but I don't want to use DoX rather than Affinity Photo.
I just made the switch from Adobe, to Affinity this month, and just bought Affinity Design, and will be gettin the design program when it becomes available. So, I'm all in!
