Description
As from WinCC flexible 2008 SP2 it is possible to operate WinCC flexible Runtime in widescreen mode. If you want to convert your 4:3 project into a widescreen project, it is recommended to disable the setting "Fit screen and screen objects to new HMI device".
This setting is enabled by default in WinCC flexible and means that when you change to widescreen mode, all the picture objects are stretched and lose their original shape.

Instructions
Proceed as described in the table below to disable the setting "Fit screen and screen objects to new HMI device".
 

No. Procedure
1 Open your WinCC flexible project.
2 Open the Settings dialog and via "Screen editor > Screen options > Settings" you disable the option "Fit screen and screen objects to new HMI device".

3 Now you can change the screen resolution in the device settings.
