Lightwright to Spotlight data exchange


After upgrading to VW 2021, I have found that the Data exchange with LIghtwright 6.0 is worse than useless. I have heard it might be because some fixtures are created using duplicate. Certainly that is one of the ways I have worked in the past.

The data exchange cannot be trusted, fixtures are left out, only some of the data is exchanged. This used to be one of the  most useful aspects of Vectorworks, because of how well Lightwright deals with information. It is a tool I would really like to able to use again.

The creator of Lightwright assures me this is a VW problem. Is there any fix on the horizon?
