  2. No tooltip appears when hovering the mouse over a multistate symbol but there is one for Value symbols etc.

    I’d like to have the same ToolTip behavior for a Multistate symbol as for a Value symbol in the PI Vision display

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Drag-and-drop reordering of table rows

    Currently, table row reordering is done in the Configure Table pane.

    It would be much more intuitive for the user if they could instead drag and drop rows to their new position.

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Single Gauge with Multiple Values

    Configure gauges using multiple attribute values. As an example, if you have a tank that has 2 level sensors, it would be helpful to show both levels in 1 gauge. Currently we accomplish this by creating 2 gauges and putting 1 on top of the other, but having a single symbol with both would be more functional.

  13. Option to Disable Snapshot Values on Trends

    As a PI Vision end user, I would like an option to disable snapshot data on trend symbols. Currently, when a display's end time is set to "Now" and trends update in real-time, incoming snapshot values are cached and included as part of its traces whether those values are later compressed out or not.

    This can cause issues with connector data as PI Connectors do not support exception testing and often send very high frequency data. The resulting traces can become noisy to the point of uselessness even at fine-grained time ranges (ex: one minute).

    Ideally, trend symbols should have…

  14. Set symbol size independent of font size

    Currently, the font size is directly related to symbol size. This is problematic when migrating button symbols from PI ProcessBook to PI Vision, since they will not retain their width. This leads to manual work being required to adjust the display layout after displays are migrated.

    An alternative solution would be to add a button symbol to PI Vision that can be sized independently of the symbol's font size.

  16. Bad value indicator

    Have a bad value indicator on value symbols - A triangular indicator specially in the value symbol which would indicate an exclamation mark when the quality of the data value is bad.

  17. Option to disable trend cursor sync

    Not all users like synchronized trend cursors (placing a cursor on one trend causes it to appear on other trends at the same time), some find it very distracting. There should be an option to disable this functionality.

  18. Modify the scale step for PI Vision symbols (gauges, trend)

    When customizing symbol scale range, only top and bottom values can be specified. It would also be useful to set increment or step value to avoid unnecessary clutter on a display.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
