CitectSCADA 5.50 allows trend tag names of 31 characters but recommends a length of 16 characters. CitectSCADA 6.00 allows trend tag names to be as long as 79

In CitectSCADA version 5.50 when printing trends using TrnPrint() the printed report only allows 10 characters for the trend tag name in both Landscape and Portrait mode. After it reaches this maximum number it rolls-over to the next line which can make it hard to read the trend tag name.

In CitectSCADA version 6.00 the printed report allows 54 characters in Landscape mode and 27 characters in Portrait mode which is still a limitation for this version.

Citect has confirmed this to be a problem in CitectHMI/SCADA version 5.50 to 6.00. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
