When executing a Photoshop plugin (.8bf) effect nothing shows if anything is happening or not.

Usually image editors supporting Photoshop compatible plugins feature a progress bar of the plugin rendering the image.

Even though that bar isn't always showing actual 'count down' (sometimes the progress bar starts over a couple of times, depending on the plugin) but at least it indicates the plugin effect is still being processed. Particularly Filter Forge effects consume considerable rendering time: I can't tell whether Affinity is either still busy or has ignored the rendering task.

The circular 'busy' cursor isn't always showing; sometimes it just shows the ordinary arrow cursor. Don't like to depend on the circular 'busy' cursor anyway since it also shows when software has crashed.


In short: it would be very helpful if Affinity Photo would feature a plugin progress bar, just like any other image editor does.
