Lightwright is Compatible With Vectorworks 2016, Almost...
Lightwright 5 and 6 work great with Vectorworks 2016, except for Vectorworks’ new Project Sharing feature. It is unlikely that Data Exchange will ever work with Project Sharing.
Anyone with a registered copy of Lightwright 5 can purchase upgrades to version 6 at special upgrade-only rates. Users with student licenses may be able to get a new free license for LW6, or buy a Student-to-Individual upgrade to version 6. Contact City Theatrical for details.
If you purchased Lightwright 6 on January 1, 2016 or later, contact City Theatrical to get your special upgrade price before August 1, 2016.
If you have an older copy of Lightwright (version 4 or older), you will need to buy a new complete license (Personal or Institutional).
Lightwright 6.0.3 is Available Now
Version 6.0.3 is ready to download, it adds a new Data Exchange option to choose what address fields Lightwright monitors and fixes problems with student license info being saved and a wide variety of internal bugs.
Student licenses require version 6.0.1 or later.
Lightwright Touch vs. Lightwright 6
Unfortunately, Lightwright Touch isn't compatible with Lightwright 6 at this time, but West Side Systems has a new release in beta testing that will, hopefully in about a month. For more information, contact West Side Systems directly.
Lightwright 6's minimum system requirements are the bare minimum you need to run Lightwright 6. Lightwright 6 may creak along with a slow processor or hard drive, and the larger your monitor, the more pixels it has to push. A fast SSD will help opening and closing files, but a fast processor, plenty of RAM, and a fast graphics chip are really needed for a good experience.
I've also found that for some reason the Mac version draws the screen faster than the Windows version. My personal experience has also been that Windows 10 is significantly faster than Windows 7 or 8.
Maybe it's time to consider a new laptop?...;)
