  1. Font Size

    Can we have the option to specify font size for all symbols? There is currently no way to set font size in tables, bar chart/gauge, scale values in trends, etc.

  5. Layering functionality for PI Vision similar to that of ProcessBook

    PI Vision currently does not support any functionality for layers. It would nice to be able to create custom layers that could toggled on a single Vision display. ProcessBook currently has layering feature that is very useful for simplifying a complex display when not all of the information is necessary for every user.

  6. Dynamic connectors between objects

    Similar to other diagram tools available, please make it possible to draw one line between any two items on a display, and snap to them, so that they move if the object does etc.

    It would also be really useful if these were aware of each other and could "jump" over each other. It's currently a very time consuming process to draw line after line and work out a way of showing where two pipes overlap rather than join.

  7. Wrap text in tables and number formats

  8. Asset Search: Tree View / Structure in PI Vision - Not consistent with other products.

    Not a fan of the Asset Framework tree structure in PI Vision. It needs to work as a tree structure just like PI System Explorer. The setup in Vision is too clunky and is hard to navigate.

    Again, I would like to see the tree structure consistent in all products to mirror System Explorer.

    This can currently be achieved by dragging the trend plot area to the right so that the legend is no longer visible. Does that meet your needs to remove/disable the legend?

  10. Color scheme for color blind

    It would be very helpful to have an option to select a color scheme for color blind e.g. change all red trends to color that have not been used and classified as good color for color blind.

  11. Hide trend scale range

    For digital tags or Enumeration AF attribute, do not want to see the scale or scale range, because these values is not relevant to my values.

  12. Allow custom menu/navigation bars

    All the Pi Vision screens I have seen seem to include a custom menu bar that the user creates for internal navigation that is manually copied and pasted to each screen every time there are updates to the structure. Instead, there should be the ability to create a custom menu bar, just like a header on a document so changes automatically propagate from the template outwards. This has been lumped into other ideas, but I feel it could reduce scope as a stand-alone feature.

  13. Add Size (Height, Width) in Properties of Pi vision display along with Option to add Header and footers

    1- Add Size (Height, Width) in Properties of Pi vision display along with Option to add Header and footers. It will Ensure homogeneity to the Multiple displays created. and it will also be easy to add fixed navigation links to multiple pages in one go.

    2- Please allow to enter Attributes in existing Pi vision displays by typing in addition to search, Drag and drop option.

  14. More control over pop up and ad hoc background color

    Currently the background for ad hoc and pop up trends is controlled by the background color of the display and the background color of trends on the display. It would be nice to have more control over this setting.

    For this particular use case, it would be helpful to be able to control the ad hoc background color globally. An idea would be to have this formatting option in the "Format Display" window that currently allows you to control the display background color.

    I can also see a use case for controlling this on a display by display basis. Perhaps…

  15. Drop down for collections

    Have an option for collections to appear as a drop down list in the display. This would be beneficial for context switching in displays, so that the user could then select from a drop down on the display which element to view. Instead of having to scroll through a collection and double click the element.

  17. Remove or resize grey selection box

    Add an option to remove or resize the grey selection box in PI Vision. In displays where the symbols are dense and small, it can add confusion to the end users to see the selection box encapsulating adjacent symbols when they click on them.

  19. Rotate Vertical Gauge Value to also be Vertical

    When using a Vertical Gauge the value at the top takes up a lot of space because the gauge is a vertical, yet the value is horizontal. The horizontal text is typically wider than the gauge itself. This is not a big deal for 1 gauge, but when we convert it to a collection to pull multiple gauge together we want to see them side by side. The collector spaces them out taking up too much real estate. If we had an option to ROTATE the value on the vertical gauge to also be Vertical we could keep all gauges…
