  2. Have settings for line symbol border and/or padding

    Provide the option to change the line symbol's border and/or padding.  Currently, if a line is used in a Collection, there appears to be some built-in padding preventing adjacent (horizontal or vertical) lines from touching.

  3. Replace attributes on trends and retain formatting

    It is sometimes the case that you create a trend for one set of attributes for an element and then you want to replicate the trend for another set of attributes in the same element. It would therefore be useful if the replacement attributes could be dragged over one of the original attributes in the trend list to replace it and keep the formatting, similar to how the attribute for a multi-state can be changed.

  4. Allow size change of Trend Column in table

    Dear developers,
    in a table the column containing the small trend/preview cannot be resized (made wider). It would be very beneficial if the size of this column could be also changed.

  6. Multistate back in History shows Min / Max

    In current time/real time, multistate is based on the value at the current time. However, if the user changes the time of the display to be back in history (not in current time), then it shows a summary values (like min/max/avg) of the attribute indicating if something over that time period was in a bad state. This shows the user that something wrong happened during this time range rather than a value at the end time of the time range.

  7. Visually link items

    I would like to easily draw a broken arrow linking 2 graphical elements, so that they are visually linked together. This way, I could describe the flow of a process and, if I move a graphical element, I won't have to edit the complex set of lines I drew between them.

  8. Gauge: Scales inside

    As a display author, I would like to configure the location (inside/outside) of scales on horizontal and vertical gauge symbols. Currently if gauge scales are shown they are always outside or the bar/gauge.

  9. Add a symbol to plot an enumeration set over time

    Symbol to plot an enumeration set over type which associates every enum value/reason codes with a color (and supports multistating) as well as line thickness.

    This is used currently as a custom symbol to indicate the general state of a process.

  10. Display full tag name when configuring multistate symbol

    When configuring multistate condition on an object, unable to see the name of the tag being used on the left-hand panel because it is being truncate by "...". Please make the tag name wrap text and display the full name, rather than being truncated by "...". Also would be better to make the tag name editable so it's easier to duplicate multi-states for other tags by editing the tag name rather than having to manually re-create everything from scratch.

  11. Multistate: Set symbol/trace color based on historical data in display time range

    Change the color of a symbol or trend trace based on tag data within the time range of the display. e.g. If the tag is in alarm at the end time of the display, then set the color red. If the tag is not in alarm at the end time, but it was in alarm at some time during the time range of th display, then set its color yellow. Set the color green if no alarm was reported in the time range of the display.

  12. Save trend time range and attributes to favorites

    On a trend, PI Vision user should be able to select an area and save it as a custom event range where it has all details about attributes on that section and time range. The user can save this info in his profile where he can always apply back this info to reproduce the same trend.

  13. Preserve "Visibility" settings when switching a gauge to another gauge

    If I switch, say, a horizontal gauge to be a vertical gauge, the "Visibility" settings for Label, Value, and Unit should be preserved. Currently, these reset to showing all of them.

  14. Table: Row Grouping by Category

    Allow grouping of attributes in a table by their assigned AF Category similar to how attributes are grouped in System Explorer.  This would help organize the contents of a table other than by alphabetical order.

  16. PID

    Apologies if it exists in a newer version. Please provide a PID (proportional, integral, derivative object) like you would find in an HMI with: PV (with optional SPC limits), SP (with optional upper and lower limits) and OUTput (with optional upper and lower limits). Attached JPG as lame example.

  17. Trend: Show Child Events (EF) on a Trend

    I want to view child events like phases for a production run on the trend so that I can clearly see where these phases start and end in relation to the continuous data.

    One visualization example for this is to draw a vertical line at the start of each child event and place the name of the child event vertically along the line. This is another way to visualize child events rather than an aligned Gantt Chart.

  18. Multistate: Ability to control symbol rotation based of the data value

    Based on the value of the tag, add capability to also define the angle at which the symbol should rotate. This would come very handy while indicating wind directions, drop/rise in value etc.
