 FAQ's for getting started
 For using the screen data of GP with large display size by small GP.

All the data of a large screen cannot be displayed if GP of a small screen remains as it is, correction is needed according to display area size (resolution).
There is no function corrected by all cannot be corrected at one time and it is necessary to reduce for every base screen.

The change method

1. Go into a [screen editor] from a [project manager], and a base screen will be opened.

2. Select [Option] from the menu bar -> [Screen Properties...].

3. Select the [display area] tab and check the same size as the GP's screen.

4. A frame is displayed on a screen.

5. Since the displayed frame is the selected GP's display size, please edit the picture's position according to this frame.

When the parts and the tags go in the GP's screen even after they are scaled down, it's necessary to adjust them individually by moving them to a different screen, or displaying them in a window etc.

6. Finally, return to the [project manager]. Then select [Change Project Manager] and change to your desired GP type.
