Time range zoom: zoom in on a trend while fixing y axis
Would like to have more functions to play around with a trend in Vision.
Instead of drawing a box, it will be nice to have functionality like fixing in the middle and drag left or right to adjust the width of x axis while keeping the y axis range the same to zoom in on the time range of a trend.
While we appreciate the interest the community has for this suggestion, we have decided to decline this item in favor of other high priority work the product needs. Thank you for your feedback, and please continue sharing suggestions for how we can improve PI Vision for you!

This is quite imporant for example when looking at stepped boolean values. It makes sense to then set the range on a trend from 0 to 1 (False to True).
If I then want to zoom in on the time range, it is very difficult to still have the 1 Value displayed. This means that only the flanks are displayed (if they are still in the time range).
I like the way that plotly (https://plot.ly/) solves this: If the rectangle you draw is very narrow, it then switches to only zooming in on one axis (the not narrow one).

when zooming in on section of a trend, it would be nice to zoom in and not have scale change. maybe add functionality that if ctrl shift is used it highlights that time period from top to bottom so the scale does not change when it zooms in
