- Navigate to your Applications folder and open your Font Book as seen below.
2. Scroll up to the Arial fonts (A), select the drop down triangle to view it's contents (B).
3.Select any duplicates, hold your mouse over them to check their path(C).
4.Any fonts located in the "Path: Library/Fonts/'name of arial font" should be kept (such as the example above).
5.Duplicate fonts in any other location, such as the example below, should be removed by right-clicking (or control-clicking) and selecting "Remove 'Font Name'".
Examples of incorrect locations that should be removed are:
-Path: Users/ 'username'/Library /Fonts
6. Please repeat this process for all 'Arial' font duplicates, such as Arial Black, Arial Hebrew, etc.
7.Once all duplicate Arial fonts have been removed, please quit font book and restart your system.
If the crashing continues, then please let me know which of the plug-ins cause Aperture to crash. Is it all six, or is it just a few of them? This information will be helpful to continue troubleshooting.

I think that the issue is only with HDR Efex Pro 2. I have used Define and Color Efex Pro 4 on the same image files. They do their job. HDR is the only one that quits.
I have tried the Google suggestion of adding the coe to the HDR Efex configuration file and it did not change anything.
I have just checked for duplicate Arial fonts, and I do not see any duplicates as mentioned in point 4 (so everything has been kept).
Scrolling further down I find the "Microsoft" folder. It is full of fonts, some Arial (see attached).
Should I just delete the Microsoft folder? I do have some MS Office for Mac installed.MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.5)

To the dr....
Hi I have the same exact problem as fla41w - only affecting HDR Efex Pro 2. Have checked Arial fonts and they are clear of duplicates as well.
Any further suggestions?

HAve you gone so far as to boot in recovery ( Command - R ) and reinstalled the OS? It worked for me fianlly all apps were cool and Aperture's library sorted itself out. You will have to reinstall any plugins. Also works for the Quicktime stuff up on the last OS update, again, had to reinatll plugins but allw as cool.

No, I have not done that. I have submitted a ticket to Nik to see what they have to say. Everything had been so stable, for so long, that I have lost touch with how to get the latest versions of Nik software. The plug-ins themsleves used to take me to the right location at Nik. I will have to re-educate myself.
When I hear back from them I will decide whether to Command R the situation.
Thanks for your help. I should be back sometime today.

OK, I have the Nik update. They sent me a link to download the latest versions of all plugins "NikCollection_1.007_22671_mac_full.dmg", with instructions to install the collection. They claimed that they have seen this issue with older Nik versions.
I installed all plugins and started Aperture. It worked. HDR Efex Pro 2, stopped crashing during load of the image. I was able to use a couple of presets and saved an HDR version.
When I tried the full screen version, I got a smeared rendering of the lower left as I have seen described above. I quit Aperture and restarted and the image looked fine in full screen mode.
I figure that I might have to redo the GPU configuration fix, to finishup. I will maybe get to that later.
For now, I am happy that the plug-in is not crashing.
Thanks to the Dr and to others who took an interest in this issue.
