Facts and Changes

Causes and Fixes

This works as designed. The changes from the 'Module Alignment' will only get exported to symbol
formatted files (i.e., .SCY and .XSY). The reason why the changes do not get exported to a .GSD file
is because 'Module Alignment' only affects the word data stored within the PLC memory. The 'Module
Alignment' is used to align the data within the IO module to a word boundary within the PLC. This allows
the IO data from the slave to have the same layout as that of a Premium Profibus master.
