Known issues
G4 Project Conversion
A separate utility application, G4Utility, has been provided to convert G4 panel projects to the new G5 format. This utility can be accessed via the Tools menu.

  • G4 Projects will be limited to Modero X and S series panel-types
  • Button page-flips will be migrated to the Release event on the button
  • String outputs will be migrated to the Release event on the button
  • Command outputs will be migrated to the Release event on the button
  • Any utilized slots on states will be converted to a second bitmap
  • Unsupported button-types (TakeNote, Computer Control, Joystick, List-Box) will be removed
  • Unsupported borders will be removed
  • Text Effects: Outline effects are not supported in G5
  • Text Effects: All Drop Shadow w/ Outline effects will be converted to their standard counterparts

TP5 Project File Size

  • Because of implementation differences between the G5 project format and G4 project format, users will likely notice a significant variation in size between their TP4 and TP5 projects.
  • This is mainly a result of compression algorithms no longer being utilized within G5 projects due to project-format changes.
  • There should be abundant disk space on Modero-X G5 panels to contain the panel project, but users should be aware that their TP5 projects will be significantly larger on disk than their G4 projects were.

Font Replacement

  • TPDesign5 will check for projects which may be using an older version of AMX Bold (amxbold.ttf) and replace it with the updated version (amxbold_.ttf).
  • The descrepancy between the two versions would cause some projects using the older version to render incorrectly either in TPDesign5 or on the touch panel, or both.
  • TPDesign5 will notify the user when the project is opened that the substitution has taken place and that they should save their projects afterward.
  • Also, G4Utility v1.1 will perform the substitution as part of the conversion process.
