  1. 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!

    • Please add a green screen backdrop, s'il vous plait.

      Also, show the videographers some love. We are using your fine app as well. Green screen backdrop and a video camera icon are my requests. Superb app!

          • Create Windows Phone version

            Would love to be able to use this on my phone when I'm on location.

            I realize where this probably sits on your priority list, but I thought it'd be nice to get it on there anyway.

            • Bug

              Everytime I try to view a light diagram it shows a small image that is skewed and not viewable at all. I have tried to use different computers and browsers.

              Thank you,
              Jason

                • 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.

                  • 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

                        • Scrims + video/digital movie cameras

                          Huge scrims for movie sets and huge production still sets.

                          Also add a video camera like a RED or Panasonic AF100 and ARRI Alexa style camera.

                                  • More space for favorite diagrams or dedicated page

                                    It is hard to browse favorite diagrams at this moment. Can You make dedicated page for favorite diagrams (full width) or more space to see them (pressing see more is frustrating) . Also bigger thumbnails would be great :)

                                        Thanks Oliver, I find Sylights very useful and user friendly. I noticed when I download my diagram, the comments I have made are not included. Is there a fix for this or am I missing something? thanks

                                        • How about a vertical, camera point of view diagram tool?

                                          This tool would show relative heights for each light, panel or head from the camera's point of view. An outline would show something behind a panel that would otherwise block the view. These would be tied to the overhead lighting diagram. When one moves something here it moves in the camera POV as well
