RobotStudio I/O Data Signal Editor does not work with RW7 files

It seems like the "I/O Data Signal Editor" interprets eio.cfg files from RW7 as the old RW5 format with "UnitMap" instead of "DeviceMap". This leads to corrupt files when saving.

I find the I/O Data Signal Editor useful, e.g. for sorting eio.cfg in alphabetic order, so it's a shame it doesn't work.
