    Important note for the system behaviour of Hotfix 7:
    Any HMI projects which contain many or very large bitmaps and/or TIFF graphics my exhibit the following behaviour:
    - The initial automatic conversion of the project by Hotfix 7 my require increased main memory on the engineering station. In rare cases the conversion may abort.
    - The project file (*.hmi) may be larger after conversion with Hotfix 7.

    Should you have problems using Hotfix 7 please contact our Customer Support.

    If the bitmap-/ TIFF graphics of the HMI project match the target runtime-system characteristics (size/colour-depth), problems should not be experienced.
    Principally it is recommended to create graphics in optimized formats, such as jpeg, png.

    Runtime systems are not affected by the behaviour described above, i.e the generated project file (*.fwx) is not affected.
