  1. Alert when not the owner (write access) of a display when entering "build mode"

    Often work has been done on a PI Vision display (with a known/published URL) only to realise you were not the owner when hitting the "save" button. A prompt when editing starts, or keeping the save button in the "inactive" state if not the display owner would help prevent this re-work.

  2. Access Vision Displays By Name Instead of ID

    When migrating displays from one environment to another using the Vision display utility there is no guarantee the ID will remain the same in the destination environment. Since Vision displays can only be linked to via ID, all links in both Vision and ProcessBook files would need to change. This significantly complicates the migration process and makes it very error-prone.

  5. PI Vision Page Authoring Tools Improvement

    I noticed quite a number of issues while attempting to author a new PI Vision Page. Here are a list of things that are lacking in PI Vision compared to PI ProcessBook and needs to be included into PI Vision as soon as possible:
    1. Unable to Copy and Paste the Format from one Graphic/ Object to other Graphics/ Objects
    2. Limited Color Options in Format Shape/ Text/ Background/ Display
    3. Unable to Resize Grouped Graphics/ Objects
    4. Unable to set up Layers
    5. Value Text does not reflect Multistate color settings, only the shades behind the Value Text reflect…

  6. Set the size of the display

    A way to set the maximum size of a display, with the number of pixels or inches/centimeters, or even its size based on a common screen display would be really helpful.

  8. Move element through vertical or horizontal axis

    Possibility to move an element through a vertical or horizontal axis, for example when pressing the SHIFT key. Maybe it can be considered as a snap-to-grid feature.

  10. Add new element to group without ungrouping

    It is not possible to add a new element to a group already defined without ungrouping it and then grouping all elements together.

  11. Auto-Format + More

    Some improvements I would love added to PI-Vision:
    - "Snap-to" feature for adding horizontal/vertical lines. (sometimes they disappear on me too if they are exactly horizontal?)
    - "View mode" capability to compare two different assets.
    - Creating a template tool for adding data (Ex. when dragging + dropping data it is formatted to size 18 font, black, no timestamp)

  12. Allow multistating based on conditions from multiple data items

    As a PI Vision user, I would like to add multistates to my display's symbols that depend on conditions of multiple data items. For example, when the pump status tag has a value of "Active" and the pump flowrate tag has a value less than 10, turn the value symbol red.

  13. Allow the manipulation of PI Vision Displays using PI Builder

    It would be very beneficial to be able to export the attributes/tags with some simplified symbol column (so you could tell which was which in large displays) in order to update displays as your AF Hierarchy or AF Templates mature.This would also help with many other aspects of building consistent PI Vision displays.
    Another aspect of this might include the multistate associated with the symbol.

  14. Allow grouping of trend scale in PI Vision

    In PI Vision (and ProcessBook if changes are still in the works) allow grouping of y-axis scales. i.e. In a 5-pen trend, two are on “Scale 1” and three are in “Scale 2”. Makes for less y-axis space required.

  15. Add ability to sort attributes by name in PI Vision

    When looking at Attributes, they are sorted by Category. With hundreds of attributes, sometimes it seems more convenient to find an attribute quick Alphabetically. Provide two checkboxes to the right of the ATTRIBUTES header. Alphabetical or Category.

  16. Trend Set exact size in pixels

    Ability to resize trends by pixels. In other words, we can manually define the size of the trends by entering a height/length and width.

  17. Edit a Data Item by Typing or Pasting a Data Item Path

    In addition to the drag-drop option available for attributes, maybe having a textbox functionality that allows us to apply/change the name of the object’s attribute and thus changing the related attribute easily without having to search for it.

  18. improving the right click menu

    Hello,
    as a PIVision display developer I found that the following ideas may improve our workflow, thank you for your great work !

    Adding more options to the right click menu such as the proposed functionalities on PIVision. In addition to the Copy/Paste Options to add (for objects), also add the drawing features (draw a line, square, circle, etc.) when right clicking on the display for example.

  20. Make selections persist using double-click

    Make selections, such as the selection of a shape when editing a display, persist using double-click. Similar functionality exists in Microsoft Office products, such as when using the Format Painter.
