  1. Context related images

    Different assets with the same template can be visually different.
    I would like the "Image" symbol to be able to use the URL of an image as defined in an attribute of an element to decide what image sholud be shown.

  5. Add Processbook Electric T&D Symbol to PI Vision

    PI vision currently does not have the Electric T&D symbols library that is included in Processbook. In the next release of PI Vision we would like to see these symbols available in processbook. Using the PI ProcessBook Migration Tool (PI Vision 2019) is not a viable workaround to use these symbols.

  8. Correct multistating of symbols that lack an interior to fill

    As a PI Vision display creator that leverages the line drawings from the Electrical category of the symbol library, I want to be able to effectively multistate these symbols. As of Vision 2017 R2, the coloring behavior of the multistating feature only colors in the "fill" of a shape, not the "outline" of a shape. This means most of the shapes in the Electrical category cannot be multistated in Vision because they are line drawings that do not have any interior to "fill" with a color.

    The inability to multistate Electrical symbols in Vision means that I need to continue…

  10. Create Multistate symbol based on percentage of another attibute

    Ability to create a multistate symbol which would support a simple analysis such as for when the value reaches 0.95*attribute_other--meaning have the color change occur when the value reaches a percentage of another attribute.

  16. Allow locking/anchoring of symbols.

    Ability to lock Symbols in place so that they don't shift when I try to select them. This doesn't always happen, but when it does it's pretty annoying. I should be able to right click and lock/unlock a Symbol so that it doesn't accidentally get moved around.

  17. Grouped Symbols: Change font size by adjusting the group size

    When we group objects together like Text, Value, Symbols, rectangle box, lines etc, there should be provision to automatically change the grouped symbols font sizes when we resize the group.

  18. Trends: user configurable buffer around autoscale

    When trends are autoscaled (autorange) it appears that there is some logic applied to give a small buffer around the min and max value to ensure that the canvas is always larger than the trend.
     
    As a data browser, I find that my trends are often scaled too large relative to the canvas, especially when there is not much movement in the data. To solve this problem, I would like to be able to configure my own canvas buffer sizes around the min and max.
     
    For example, if my data is ranging from 0 to 1, the trend…

  20. Grouping and ungrouping items

    It would be very nice if I could group together grouped symbols.  In other words, nested groups.
