Re: SCADA CITECT NO ACEPTA PNG

The easiest way to do this is to import a normal png with a plain white (or single colour) background, then use Swap Colors from the Tools menu to change the background to transparent (the selection with an x through it).

 

I find this is often easier than using a dedicated graphics package to set a transparent background.

Re: SCADA CITECT NO ACEPTA PNG

@Xavhiii You're likely to hit a wider target audience if you were to write in English (or at least use Google Translate to include an 'English' version).

 

In regards to wanting to have transparent (alpha channel) PNG files, this is not supported under Citect, as per:

https://www.se.com/au/en/faqs/FA27/

 

So you will typically have to do this in other ways.

You could probably try to get your PNG image into the Citect Graphic Builder and modify it from there to add/remove pixels as necessary.

If the background is always a consistent colour, then you could just replace your transparent sections with this colour to emulate transparency.  More difficult if the content behind is dynamic.
