How can we improve PI Vision?

Display hand when hovering over objects with Navigation Links

When hovering with the mouse over a display object that has a Navigation Link attached to it, the mouse cursor should change to a hand when not in edit mode and it should navigate on single-click instead of having to double-click.

Having the mouse cursor change to a hand to indicate when a symbol is configured with a navigation link is in development for the PI Vision 2019 release. To make this behavior more intuitive for users, single-clicking the symbol will trigger the navigation instead of double-click. Trends will be an exception to this, single-clicking a trend will continue to drop a cursor and double-click will be required for navigation links.

    When adding a hyperlink to a text in PI VIsion, the cursor turns in to a pointing hand when hovering over the hyperlink and the navigation event fires after a singel click on the hyperlink.
    When adding hyperlink to a graphic object, the cursor does not turn into the pointing hand when hovering, and you need to double-click to fire the navigation event.

    The graphical object's hyperlink should result in the cursor turning into the hand symbol, and navigation event should fire after singel-click.

    This seems like a must have for use to enable mobile use, not having it is slowing down the adoption of vision at our site

    I'd really love to allow enabling navigation links to work via single-click rather than double-click. On a mobile device, this would make navigation links SO much easier to use!

    Also, PI Vision 2017 is not consistent since that the hand symbol and single-click is used for text objects with a navigation link.

    From my point of view it a bug, because changing mouse cursor to a hand is standard for web applications.
