Specify the font size for a symbol
it would be really useful to configure the size of both values and text by entering a number for the size of text
The PI Vision development team has completed work to allow users to specify font size for text and value symbols in PI Vision 2017 R2. Upgrade to PI Vision 2017 R2 to take advantage of this and other key new features. You can read about what’s new in PI Vision 2017 R2 in the release announcement: https://techsupport.osisoft.com/Troubleshooting/Releases/RL01278
It would also be great if we could bold or italicize certain words or all of the text.
Also it will be awesome if you guys could enable word wrap for the asset " Value " , This is critical and important.
--> Am wondering why PI Vision does not give Text related abilities ! , Such as Changing the Font Size ( not by using the mouse to expand and squeeze - Highly unreliable ! ) ,
--> Need text encapsulating abilities such as word wrap , texts appear only within the specific Text Box.
--> Need to do the same for the Values we drag and drop from the Elements
It'd also be great if there were options for bold/italics.
Can we have the ability to set the exact font size for Text and Values. For example setting the size from the main design menu where we set the alignment. Would also like to have this option when selecting multiple text and values on the screen, instead of individually changing one at a time.

This would be useful for table symbols, specifically, as they tend to have very small text.
Suggestion: release updates to PI VIsion symbols in a separate "symbol update pack". That could uncouple much needed updates to the symbols from the bigger PI Vision update.
Just like i release regular updates to our custom symbols to our customers.

Changing text size would be easier to maintain a constant text size throughout the display if it were chosen through font size rather than sizing by clicking and dragging as is the way now

The visual perception of number clarity is important, and though the text font chosen for Coresight is good, the font for numbers could be improved, in visual distinction between 0, 6, 9 and 8. Tahoma as an example, has improved clarity of distinction between numbers the numbers 0, 6, 8 and 9, by increasing the tail separation on the 6 and 9.
