    I installed the B4R and noticed that there is no Designer, how are TFT screens made?

    I have found a project that is starting, and it promises to be very useful, maybe you can talk and join forces to make both projects better.

    Not all microcontroller based projects use graphical interfaces, using TFT or other type of screens.
    It's up to the developer to implement the graphical interface. Also note that most microcontrollers have very limited memory.
    Whenever I need multiple "pages" in a microcontroller project I use Nextion based displays. They have a dedicated GUI designer and the "pages" are stored in the display itself. Comm with the microcontroller is then achieved by serial port.

    Very expensive, TFT + SD card seems to be a good alternative.

    Offset the expense against design time and coding on the other screens versus these Nextion screens and a different story starts to appear pertaining to expense.

    Just my 2 cents.
