Limited Menu items and "Global Support" problem- iMac

Recommended Posts

Using latest versions of application and OS.  Installed app on laptop (all works fine there) and on iMac- problems there.

Menu dropdown on iMac very limited- see attached.  On laptop, there is a dropdown for Filters, etc.  Nothing similar on iMac.  Can't find anything in Prefs or this forum related.  [Don't know why attached screen shot is so cropped here- it shows only Menu items are: Affinity Photo | File | Edit | View | Window | Help  ]

Help would be appreciated- thanks!

OK, issue of Menu dropdowns resolved- realized I had a RAW file and you need a non-RAW file to get the full processing menu.

However, while many of the Nik plugins now are available, Color Efex Pro 4 is not available, presumably due to the "Global Support" issue.  So any suggestions would be appreciated.
