TPM V1.3 user-selected font is not displayed with HMI Pro.

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
If another font than the standard font is selected via the ConfigTool in MCIS TPM V1.3, this font is not displayed in the HMI-Pro interface (e.g. on Transline2000 with MCIS TPM V1.3).
Signs, screenforms, etc. will not be displayed
Other fonts are required, for example, for East-Asian languages (Chinese, Japanese, Korean)

If a font differing from the standard font is used, this is stored in the Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Siemens\MCIS (FONTNAME=<NameOfFont>).
HMI Pro, however, searches this font under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Siemens\MCIS\TPM.
The key FONTNAME must therefore also be stored here by the user and must have the same contents as under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Siemens\MCIS.
