Screen change

I am currently running a 7 inch screen on a working system  and would like a smaller screen to check out software updates on, saving the cost of another large screen. Can you easily transport setups from one screen to another?


how easy something finally is depends mainly on yourself, your skills, your implementation of a given workflow ...


how you implement your setup, who knows it better than you ...


implemented stupid, porting can became a nightmare ...

implemented clever, porting an ease ...

Thank you for your response. 


Obliviously you are a very knowledgeable person re the Nextion Screen but please remember that there are many novices like me that buy the product and simple direction/ideas are most welcome. 


and? This all still wont tell any about


- how you implement existing ...

- how hard it was to implement ...

- how hard it is for you, to implement somebody others idea ...


your initial question is kind of "I am hungry, can you recommend me a restaurant whose food I like" without telling any more about your real likes or dislikes or even your budget ...


do you really expect a seriouse answer for such?



I was hoping for straight easy answer from perhaps other hobby users of the Nextion Screen and not the sarcastic remarks from obviously a clever person but unable to see that others struggle. 

then learn first to ask in a more clear way ...


quality of answers reflect to quality of questions ...


nobody here is a fortune teller ... 

The simplest answer

- everything requires skills.

Skills are learned, trained and honed.


Without the skills, the user will find things difficult.


There is no easy answer for 7" to smaller.

This is a total rework.  That will take time.


Looking for shortcuts of this nature is a fools errand.

Noticed were posted.  Do not overlook.


Thank you Martin, that's what I thought. As my 7 inch screen uses 2 pages on the live system the thought of having a smaller screen for testing new software was attractive as I'm on a limited budget. Re rework it will be.

Smaller screen for testing is twice the work

If it does work on the smaller - new work again to make again for 7.0"


However, why not just make a new HMI project

import the old, delete what is not needed for testing


But as said, this forum is closed.
