Lightwright is a unique cross between a spreadsheet and a database, designed specifically to manage professional lighting design paperwork.

Lightwright understands what designers and electricians do with their paperwork. It knows that dimmers and circuits shouldn't be overloaded, that striplights have more than one color, that color scrollers have a whole series of colors and need a control channel, and that some lights don't use color at all!

Lightwright knows that you might need to change all of the R-33 in the sidelights to L-110 and it lets you make changes like these in ways that are blindingly fast, simple, and designed to fit the way you work instead of the way computers work.

It can find mistakes, compare two sets of paperwork, figure your circuit and dimmer needs, automatically renumber a pipe, renumber or rearrange your channels and dimmers, or even assign dimmers automatically based on your channels. You can enter text almost any way you want and use footnotes and ditto marks to cut down on typing and wasted paper.
