I'd like to share lighting plans with my crew -- what software exists for creating lighting plans? What are the pros/cons to the different packages?
I've been using Microsoft Visio, but there must be a better app for this.

OLDC (free, with donation requirements for commercial use): http://www.lightingdiagrams.com/
Photo Diagrams (free, Flash-based): http://www.professionalsnapshots.com/PhotoDiagram/
Strobox (iPhone app, free): http://app.strobox.com/
This is a good free lighting diagrams software :
You can create, print, save, export in JPG your lighting diagrams with settings for all elements.
it is for information.
lightingdiagrams.com also offer a free-for-personal-use download of a PSD for photoshop which contains elements like you see below. These are each on separate layers so you can easily arrange them. There is also a version for PS Elements. A good option if you have photoshop and want to work offline or add your own elements.
Thank you for your interest in this question.
