Sylights

Welcome to the Sylights board!
Please share any idea, request or bug you may have encountered (have you?!) concerning www.sylights.com!

I want it that way:

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  5. facebook

    When I post some thing to flickr or tumblr it automaticly post to my facebook page. I think Sylights is a great internet resource and would like to see more people using it. Is there a way to add this function here.e.g. every diagram i save posts automatically on face book in my profile.

  6. Some product photo gear

    Maybe add a product photo table, a product photo tent (without the roof) and a mirror to put underneath the products/models for the popular mirrored effect

    This is already planned in our roadmap, though we don’t exactly know when we’ll be able to release it… But this is definitely something we’re going to do!

  9. Open a copy of diagram

    Enables you to have the original untouched and continue editing a copy. Thus you can easily create diagrams that you can use as templates.

    When the different buttons appears on objects and if we turn this object, the button Resize doesn't move and sometimes it's above the close button. It should be turn like the another buttons no ?

  18. Wheel mouse and zoom automatic

    When I use the Wheel mouse it automatically zoom in or zoom out if the mouse is on the diagram. So maybe a option to remove this automatic uses of the wheel could be fine. because a lot of time I want to use the wheel to scroll the web page of the browser, and it's a little bit disturbing to have in place the zoom of the diagram

  19. Popup menu position

    If I right clik to have the popup menu, and that the mouse is in the bottom or in the right of the browser window, the popup menu appears but partially hidden. and I must scroll the browser to see it totally. Si it will be great if the popup menu appears in different position (left, right, top, bottom) depending on where we are when we click.

  20. "Draw grid" option for diagram images

    Too much information could overload a diagram, but having a grid as a background could sometimes be useful.

    If you think so and want an option to draw a grid in your diagrams, vote for this idea!
