  2. PI Vision Digital State change attribute as plain text

    PI Vision Digital State simply do no show a long path and you can't see the full path of an assign attribute.

    Otherwise, it is better to change the attribute as plain text, Isn't good change an attribute as drag and drop from AF as provided

  3. Change data item manually

    Several times is hard to navigate through PI AF structure to change a assigned attribute and it is easier to change the data item path manually as plain text rather than be required to use search.

  7. Bar graph of power flow into directional arrows

    Instead of just an arrow showing flow. How about a green arrow that fills up with a red color as loading goes up. That way you can quickly see how close you are to your line or path limits.

  8. Make Element and Category Drag and Drop Consistent for Child Attributes

    Comparing three of the available methods for dragging and dropping multiple attributes onto the display for table or trend symbol shows inconsistency in how child attributes are handled.
    1. Dragging and dropping the element name brings all root and child attributes into the symbol.
    2. Dragging and dropping an attribute category name brings only the root level attributes.
    3. Drilling into a root level attribute to display its children and then dragging and dropping the root level attribute name will only bring this attribute but not its children.
    The behavior should be consistent. I this case, the user would prefer…

  9. Copied text box keeps moving up and down if we try to change the text in it

    Once a text box is copied and pasted and the user tries to edit/change the text in it, the text box jumps across the display as the user is typing. The user then has to manually drag it back to the desired location. Not sure if this was only with the specific customer I was assisting or if the issue is more widespread.

  10. Allow to move a tag or an AF attribute from one symbol to another

    This feature was existing in PI Coresight.

  11. Zooming in trend object should also zoom into the XY plot

    Zooming into the trend object doesn't zoom into the XY plot on the same display. I’ll click the left arrow then the right arrow in the time bar to overcome this.

  13. Shape Fill continued

    When creating a shape in PI vision, you can set the "fill" to empty so as to see behind the shape you made. However, it would be nice if there was a setting that would allow it to "move-to-back" so as to allow a user to click things within the shape while keeping the outline of the shape.

  14. PI Vision should prevent users from trending string tags

    Customer Jeff Huo:

    PI Vision should prevent users from trending string tags, especially if the user is not PI admin and have limited knowledge about different Point Type.

  20. remove delete button

    Please make it much more work to delete a display from PI Vision. Currently, you have the Delete Display button right next to the Save button in the Display settings options. It is just to easy to click on the delete display and if not paying attention click on the acknowledge button. Please do something like what you do in Excel. There I have to enable the delete button.
