Multistate: Copy Paste and Data Replacement Behaviors
Preserve color schemes for configured multistate symbols when copy/pasting and replacing data items.
Dropping a new value should change both the value and multistate value of the symbol.
The PI Vision development team completed work for the PI Vision 2017 release to preserve multi-state limit and color configurations when replacing the multi-state data source or copying and pasting a symbol.
Yes, please preserve the color scheme. Now i need to reset the correct colors on every copy on every screen manually... Very tedious labor when you have 22 states on 20+ multi-states on 8 displays...
copy paste multi-state so that colour scheme is retained when you change the asset.
e.g. Tank 1 level multi-state copied and changed to Tank 2.

Specifically, be able to update the data item that's driving the multi-state after copy-pasting it.
As a user, once I get the multistate set up with favorite colors, demarcations etc, I want to easily use that same format on different assets. This requires copy-paste (existing functionality-great) and then updating data item via drag and drop or other route (missing functionality).
have multistate settings persist through a triggering attribute change so long as both attributes are based off of the same template
