Replace Tags in PI Vision Displays
I changed my PLC and have new tags. I would like to keep my old Vision displays, but be able to replace / swap the old tags for new tags.
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!

Yes, please address. Once you get a good formatting on a object, it would be nice to copy, paste, modify. Not, search, add, modify, format over and over.

we also have this issue. We are replacing our DCS and the PI point is changing name due to change on DCS side. Tag changing from F1234_XX.PV to F1234_XX.PIDA.PV as an example. Our PI support can change the PI point (name and instrument tag so old history is kept with new name), but is there any tool or script for updating PI Vision without touching each PI Vision display.
