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.

  1. Enable annotations on diagram

    It's sometimes useful to add some notes directly on a diagram, to precise a flash's parameters, how high was a softbox positioned, ....
    Vote for this idea if you want annotations implemented quickly!

        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!

      • Allow copy pasting of objects.

        Hold shift and drag to copy / paste a duplicate of selected object.

            Hey
            I'm using your app on my iPhone and on my iPad, but i'm missing a function to synchronize these two (or i haven't found it yet).
            If there is no one: what is about a synch over dropbox or iCloud?

            • 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.

                • Login on iPhone app

                  Just wondering, is it possible to login on the iPhone app so that when I login on my PC, I can still see all the diagrams which I created on iPhone?
                  At the moment, I don't think I need to login on the Iphone app, so my diagrams are only accessible on my phone.

                  And is there a way I can import from my Iphone into my account after I have created one?
                  Thank you!

                  • Virtual Pen

                    A side from the tools you already have. There could be a virtual pen that let's you draw lines on your diagram. Aswel on the web app as on the iOS app.

                      • Save as new...

                        The edit feature is very cool but instead of replacing my diagram It would be cool if we had the option to save it as a new diagram..

                        This way we can document a shoot as we move lights around the studio, add or remove extra lights with out having to start a new diagram for each set up

                          • First of all, great job, guys ! The abilility to change the color of the background would be ffine. Black or white is a bit limited.

                            There's only black or white. Not even gray. If we could select different colors for the background, this will be helpful. I wrote a comment on the appstore. Great job for make this app available for Ipad1. Great team, keep creating !

                              Thanks for the feedback!
                              We have already planned to do such a thing. We just don’t know yet when this will happen.
                              The next update for the apps will bring another color for the backdrops, it won’t be gray though…
                              As for the iPad 1 support, we are happy to support iOS 5 for the time being :)

                            • Save diagram to the Cloud

                              Hello,
                              This is a great app and I need to start to edit on my iphone or ipad and I would need to be able to share my diagram on both devices and the cloud or website.
                              It would be perfect if I can create, edit and share from web version or iPad or iPhone and have my lightning diagram stored in one place (cloud)
                              Today I can only do that on 1 device and this is not very convenient.
                              Thanks for your work and keep updating your apps we love them.
                              Frederic
