  1. sig_eigei, The Fn key is still there, but on the new MacBook, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, [Fn] + [m] does not make "0, [Fn] + [j] does not make "1", [Fn] + [k] does not make "2", etc. There is no numerical key pad. The only way to enter numbers (without additional hardware or without an additional remapping app) is to use the number keys along the top of the keyboard.
  2. As a suggestion ... I love the "Maintenance" menu in Lightwright. Sometimes alphabetical isn't quite right. Sometimes I want the most used instruments or the most common instrument listed first. Or perhaps list all the profiles, then all the washes, then all the strips, then all the practicals.
  3. dhruv, You are not alone! I also have a brand new MacBook Pro, and while working in VW for the first time on the new machine, I was shocked that the numerical key pad was not there. There is a fix that will restore the numerical key pad system-wide (not just for VW). There is an app called "KeyRemap4MacBook" (http://pqrs.org/macosx/keyremap4macbook/). It is a free download. All I had to do was download it and install it. I didn't even have to open the app. It installs in the System Preferences under the "Other" section. It is a pretty powerful remapping tool, so I'm too scared to play with it. Since just loading it restored the number keypad, I'm happy. I will warn you that the website is a little hard to follow (it seems the developer is Japanese and that the site is written in more technical talk than I can follow). I generally avoid apps that make system changes, but since the number keypad is so important to the way I work in VW, I took a chance. I haven't had any issues with the install or with other oddities since downloading and installing it. Good luck!
  4. I could be WAY off base here, but ... Could your drawing(s) be organized so that each ballet was a separate drawing that was referenced by the "master" (rep plot) drawing? ** I am assuming that a referenced file would not share information with LW exchange --- I do not know if this is true. ** From the "master" drawing you could see all, some or none of the ballets. In order to pull the lighting information into LW, you would have to open that document.
