Export Graphics Tool: Exporting graphics from WinCC (TIA Portal) to a local directory
The Microsoft Windows operating system provides "MS Paint" for editing graphics. This software is sufficient for minor changes to graphics. In order to use external graphics editing programs with a greater range of functions, the existing graphics must first be exported.
The "Export Graphics Tool" exports all graphics from an existing WinCC (TIA Portal) configuration to a directory of your choice. The tool retains the original file type and the object properties (e.g., transparency). After editing, the graphics are re-inserted into the configuration.
The supplied documentation describes all the steps necessary to use the "Export Graphics Tool".
