  2. Fit All action should also be able to zoom in

    The current version does not zoom in on the Fit-All action, only zoom out. So it only scales down, but not up. The Fit All feature in PI ProcessBook is doing both zoom in and out.

    In PI Vision 2017 R2, the ‘Fit All’ behavior on displays was updated to enable zooming a display to fit the window.

  3. Multi-state color palette

    I would like to be able to select custom HTML colors for Multi-state elements. The current color grid seems like it's locked down to 16 pre-determined colors.

  4. Much richer dashboard look and feel properties to tune

    a.      The canvas colour cannot be changed through a user-friendly control. The 2016 R2 version requires fiddling with the CSS in order to change canvas colour. Or, one must resort to overlaying a filled rectangle. Not elegant, on both accounts.

    b.      Various font sizes, types and colours cannot be changed. Only trace color and style can be changed in PI Coresight 2016. However, the text in the trace side bar cannot be adjusted.

    c.      The text blocks change text size based upon block size and cannot be independently changed.

    d.      Better graphic element layout helpers (like snap, grid, group, even…

  7. Alignment of values within an element

    Ability to left, centre and right align text so that when values change, they stay aligned with sibling elements. For instance, a value of 1,000psi going down to 0psi will align itself back to the left but it would be preferable to align to the right so that units line up.

  8. Coresight to support Animation

    It will be great if Coresight could support animations such as gif or similar.
