  3. Allow drag drop replacement of X or Y variables in XY charts

    XY Charts are very versatile and allow substantial customization, from setting time ranges to point types, sizes, and colors.  Once considerable effort has been invested into customizing a plot to ones satisfaction, it is common to want to copy/paste that chart again and then simply change the data sources.  Right now, the XY Chart only allows you to add additional X or Y variables and then delete the old ones, but when you do this all of the settings return to their defaults.  I think it would be extremely valuable if, rather than adding a new series and deleting the…

  5. 3D navigable and filtrable plot (XYZ)

    Similarly to the XY plot, a XYZ 3D plot would be useful to inspect the trend of 3 variables in a 3D space and visually deduce correlations. Example could be the Environment Temperature, the Gas Valve Opening, and the Produced Power of a gas turbine. This graph should also be filtrable (e.g. I only want to see this data when the machine is operating under maximum power conditions).

  6. Clean up the Symbol Library to make it easier to find items

    The current symbol library of canned symbols is a little inconsistent, dated and would benefit from a clean up.

    For example, in Military you have a Fuel Truck, in Mining you have a number of Haulage trucks, but neither of these appear in Vehicles, if you are looking for a vehicle. I would expect to see all the vehicle symbols under Vehicles, as well i sin the industry segments.

    In Operator Interface you have Panels, but they do not appear in Panels.

    The symbol list should be clear what is by industry segment, and then what are generics. Under the…

  8. Being able to change the line thickness on XY Plots in PI Vision

  9. highlight above/below the limit trend section

    Highlight the PI Vision trend section that above/below the limit by changing the color of the trend in that section. Limits can come for PI AF (traits) but there should be an option to configure limits from PI Vision too (similar to how you configure multistage symbols).

  14. Correct multistating of symbols that lack an interior to fill

    As a PI Vision display creator that leverages the line drawings from the Electrical category of the symbol library, I want to be able to effectively multistate these symbols. As of Vision 2017 R2, the coloring behavior of the multistating feature only colors in the "fill" of a shape, not the "outline" of a shape. This means most of the shapes in the Electrical category cannot be multistated in Vision because they are line drawings that do not have any interior to "fill" with a color.

    The inability to multistate Electrical symbols in Vision means that I need to continue…

  16. Create Multistate symbol based on percentage of another attibute

    Ability to create a multistate symbol which would support a simple analysis such as for when the value reaches 0.95*attribute_other--meaning have the color change occur when the value reaches a percentage of another attribute.

  18. Sampled Data Symbol

    Please add a Pi Vision Symbol for Sampled Data (similar to Data Link in Excel) to show a row column timestamped historical data table for selected tags. This would be similar to the Trend, only in table format for the time period at the bottom of the screen at a given interval (15m, 1h, 1w, etc).

    This would help Pi Vision expand to be more of a basic reporting platform in addition to HMI trend and single value viewer.

  19. Allow locking/anchoring of symbols.

    Ability to lock Symbols in place so that they don't shift when I try to select them. This doesn't always happen, but when it does it's pretty annoying. I should be able to right click and lock/unlock a Symbol so that it doesn't accidentally get moved around.

  20. Grouped Symbols: Change font size by adjusting the group size

    When we group objects together like Text, Value, Symbols, rectangle box, lines etc, there should be provision to automatically change the grouped symbols font sizes when we resize the group.
