When trying to open a Nikon NEF file  (D500), on the file - open, it lists the file numbers of the images, but when i click on one it displays..No preview available.  In order to see the image i have to double click on the file number which then takes it into the develop persona.  I have watched some you tube vids, that show that when a file number is single clicked it shows a preview to the right.

As you can image, with no preview available, its a right pain trying to find individual images to work on.

 

ta in advance.

This thread, https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/35650-missing-previews-when-loading-raw-files/?p=178573 , especially the second post, should provide the answer for you.  It deals with DNG files, rather than NEF, but the principle is the same.

 

The provision, or otherwise, of thumbnails is a function of the OS, not Affinity.  If you do a search on the forums for "thumbnail" you will find numerous threads, of the which the above is one.

On Windows systems the Nikon NEF Codec should help here, after installing that the OS and most tools like third party image viewers etc. which can't deal themselves with NEF files will show up the images. - On a Mac the OS has it's own Apple RAW codec build-in and probably needs an update (Apple RAW-compatibility-update 6.19 for digital cameras) then which supports the Nikon D500 RAW L-format too!
