[3rd Party Issue] Filter Forge 8 exception in Photo

Recommended Posts

Tested today since I'm evaluating FF 8 to be used with AP, and with any kind of selection in the photo if I try to open FF give me an exception

<class XFW::ArgumentError> Unexpected mask presence state.

FF is shown with Unknown status in the Plugins and I allow "Unknown" plugins to be used.

In this FF thread the moderator state

Filter Forge worked perfectly in Affinity 1.5. Starting with version 1.6, Serif broke their plugin support while we didn't change anything in the plugin. Feel free to nag Serif about fixing what they broke.

This was in December 2018, it's expected something is happening, or FF will remain in the limbo since neither FF nor Serif are working to find a solution?

This happens both in stable 1.6 than in beta 1.7.0.293.

Filter Forge:

"AND while our developers try to solve this official support problem with Serif, there's one nice and simple workaround: copy and paste to use FF and AP together." 

"Filterforge 6 isn't working anymore. In the latest 1.5 it works fine..." 

Not my job to check but the post in the beta section is referring to FF 6, we are in the 8 version, the other post state you are working together to solve the problem, are you? Since appear nobody is doing anything...

We've logged this with our developers when it was raised on the forums. 

I'm afraid I haven't got any progress updates regarding this issue. Sorry

So this topic can't be in the (Resolved) subforum I suppose, or need to be merged with other tracking.
