Cautions for using this software
1. Required PC memory
The processing may be terminated by Windows on a personal computer of which main memory capacity is
less than 64M bytes. Make sure to secure the capacity of 64 M bytes or more.
2. Free capacity of hard disk (virtual memory)
At least 50M bytes of free capacity of virtual memory should be secured within hard disk to run this software.
The processing may be terminated by Windows if 50M bytes or more of free space cannot be secured
within hard disk while running GT Designer2.
Secure enough free capacity of virtual memory within hard disk space in order to run the software.
When enough free capacity cannot be secured, make sure to save projects frequently.
3. Error messages displayed while starting and editing
“Operation will be terminated because of insufficient memory. Would you like to stop?”
If the above message appears, close other running application software or reboot Windows in order to
secure at least 50M bytes of free hard disk space.
4. GT Designer2 and GOT display
(a) Cautions for displaying straight line other than full line (dotted line, for example) in Bold
When straight line other than full line is drawn in bold, the line may not be displayed with its actual line
width on a personal computer.
However, it will be displayed correctly on GOT. This phenomenon does not mean data problem.
(b) Display of end points of straight line/line freeform/polygon
As shown below, the end points of straight line/line freeform/polygon are displayed differently
between GT Designer2 and GOT.
On GT Designer 2
On GOT
(c) Start position for filling patterns
Some filling patterns may be differently displayed.
For example, the start position may be different between GT Desginer2 and GOT.
(d) Drawing of different type lines
The length of the dots varies in different dotted lines (for example: the chain lines).
(e) Display of object
The display position of the memory data display in graph function is different between GT Designer2
and GOT.
Even if the display-start-line of a comment has been set, the comment will be displayed from the first
line on GT Designer2.
(f) Display magnification
When display magnification is changed, the connected lines or figures may be separated or the
filled-paint may be out of outline of the figure.
However, if they are displayed correctly on the preview screen, they will appear correctly on GOT as
well.
(Example): When filled-paint is out of the outline.
Display magnification: 200%
Display magnification: 100%
Position of Paint mark may be
shifted and the filled-paint may
be out of the figure outline.

5. Restrictions when the color setting is changed to the setting of less colors in the system environment (256
colors
2 colors)
The color palette for setting color will be changed according to the updated settings.
The color on the drawing screen will be kept the same as prior to the change.
If the color setting for a [red] rectangle-figure is changed to the 2 colors (B/W), the [red] color will remain.
The colors of the image data (for example: BMP files) will be reduced when the project is saved.
6. Object function and device type
he object (bit lamp or word lamp),for which bit device setting and word device setting are separated, cannot
be converted between bit device and word device.
7. When device type is changed
Confirm the device type when the set bit device is changed from bit device into word device.
The device flag may be represented as “??” ,depending on the settings .
(Example) D0. b0
D0
D0.b5
??
8. OS setting
Set the font size as “Small Font” when setting OS (Windows) screen.
The GT designer2 dialog box cannot be displayed correctly if the font size is set as “Large font”.
9. When the toolbar icon appears in smaller size after startup of GT Desinger2
The toolbar icon may appear in smaller size right after GT Deseiger2 is started up.
To correctly display the icon, initialize it as instructed below.
(Click on [Project]
[References] from the menu, and select the toolbar tab. Click on Reset All
button in that tab.)
10. When using GT Designer2 in the PC in which the OS other than Japanese version

About monitor screen data to be displayed on GOT
Create the monitor screen data, which will be displayed on the GOT, using the dedicated software
(GT Designer2) on the personal computer.
On GT Designer2, paste display frame figures called objects, such as switch figures, lamp figures
and numerical display, to create a screen, and set operation functions to the pasted objects with the
device memory (bit, word) of the PLC CPU to execute the functions of the GOT.
Transfer the created monitor screen data to the GOT via an RS-232C cable or PC card (memory
