I have imported an Windows Meta Format image into Citect but when I rotate it, the image becomes badly distorted. Does Citect support Windows Meta Format graphics files?  

Yes you can import Windows Meta Files into the Graphics Builder and use them on your graphics pages and in your graphics objects in the same way that you can use existing bitmap objects from the symbol libraries. However, Citect does not currently support rotation of WMFs at runtime. If you use them, and if you add rotation properties, the bounds of the box containing the metafile rotates but not the actual metafile data.

Citect advises this to be a limitation in all CitectHMI/SCADA versions. We will post new information here as it becomes available.
