When you have to deal with a high number of lights in the project, you can use a valuable feature that allows to open a mask that lists them all. That's very common when you are planning the entire house, showrooms, exhibition stands, etc...
You can use the command named "Ligths list" (available in the Virtual 3D-Lights section of the Ribbon, when you are in the Layout window), and open the following mask:
As you can see in the image, in this mask you can manage the most important parameters of the artificial lights available in the project; you can quickly modify the following parameters:
- On/Off: you can switch the light on/off. When you deal with many lights at the same time, this command lets you saving a lot of time!
- Light name
- Light type (this piece of information is read-only)
- Light intensity
- Light color
- Light temperature
- Group (as you know, grouping lights the correct way is of paramount importance in case you want use the post-processing features you have available after the rendering process; with them, most of the times, you can modify the light behavior in the final image without launching the render process again.

Now you know why it is important naming each light in the project the correct way, so that you can find the needed light just by reading its name.
