  1. Allow Wrap Text for Asset Comparison Tables in PI Vision

    Wrap Text is a feature allowed in PI Vision Tables, but not Asset Comparison Tables.

  2. PI Vision - Table - Dynamic Name column

    For tables the name column should have the same dynamic feature as charts, to only display attribute name if only one element is added to the table. Today I avoid using tables for single element displays due to the current fixed Element|Attribute setup.

  3. Add option to show displays as just a list of names without images

    Currently the displays page takes a long time to load, I think this is partly due to having to load the "Preview Images" when there are a large number of displays. It would be nice if we had the ability to configure it so only the name was shown, possibly only show the preview image on hover for a single display. This way we wouldn't have to wait for hundreds of images to render just to click the new display button

  4. XY Plot: Asset Description option for Labels

    In [ Configure XY Plot > Format > Legend ] there are 3 available options:
    - Data Source Name
    - Asset Name Only
    - Use Custom Label

    Please add "Asset Description" as a futher option.

    I have a PI AF hierarchy like the following very simplified one:

    Reference Curves
    Equipment A
    Curve1 "Status 0%"
    Curve2 "Status 10%"
    Curve3 "Status 20%"
    Equipment B
    Curve1 "Status 0%"
    Curve2 "Status 5%"
    Curve3 "Status 10%"
    ....
    Equipment X
    Curve1 "Status 0%"
    Curve2 "Status 15%"
    Curve3 "Curve3 25%"

    In a XY Plot I can change the Equipment via the Select Asset menù, changing coherently the…

  5. Would like to have a symbol that would allow configuration of start/end/duration sets so that users could change the display time context

    Would like to have a symbol that would allow configuration of start/end/duration sets so that users could change the display time context with a click. This would be an alternative to making the duration bar at the bottom configurable and would allow us to add time parameter sets with names like 'First Shift'.

  6. PI Vision value symbols alignment

    PI Vision could be able to handle size and position of Value symbols so that the width is fixed by the author when aligned.

  7. Add margins for Digital States on Trend Charts

    For Digital States and Enumeration Sets, it would be nice if there was an option for the Min and Max values to not be at the top and bottom of the Y-axis. For example, on a 0 and 1 digital state, allow the Y-axis min/max to be set to -1 and 2 so that the steps of trend line do not travel all the way across the plot. Another option would be to add a top margin or bottom margin setting for each trend, to allow shifting of the trend up and down on the chart so that multiple trends…

  8. 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.

  9. More Trend Options

    It would be beneficial if trends could be displayed as stacked area graphs as shown below.

  10. 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.

  11. Change weight of multiple traces

    For me, the default trace weight in PI Vision is too large. Reducing the weight slightly makes the trends much easier to see, especially when I need to have multiple data points on the same trend.

    Being able to change the default trace weight, or being able to change the weight of all traces within a trend simultaneously would be great.

  12. 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…

  13. Allow entering number for sizing of texts and images.

    When you input a tag/text, you have to drag the corner to resize. There is no way to define specific value for vertical/horizontal sizing. This makes it very hard to create a template file.

  14. Custom limits for tracers in trend plots

    When configuring custom limits for the Scale range of each trend tracer in PI Vision, you are only able to set specific static limits. In PI ProcessBook each of the limits could separately be chosen as autorange or static. Often I wish to set the scale min = 0 and the scale max = autorange, but as it is today this is not possible in PI Vision. Please make this functionality available again.

  15. Configure Trend Legend

    Leave the Configure Trend Legend open when adding new traces to trends. If I'm changing the settings of a trend, then add a new trace to it, it doesn't make sense for the Configure Trend Legend to automatically disappear.

  17. 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…
