  4. Trend: Ability to see long-term trace to put current trace in context

    As a PI Vision user, I want to be able to see a trend's trace in context with how the trace is trending over a larger time range.

    This could be visualized with a smaller trace above the trend that shows the trace over a larger time range, with the section highlighted that corresponds to time range of the main trend. This highlighted section should be able to be dragged forward or backward in times and should be able to be expanded or shrunk using handles. See attached image for an example.

  13. Lock the time range on a display

    It would be helpful in some use cases to be able to lock the time range on displays, so that clicking through the time bar or clicking or touching a trend does not adjust the time range.

    One particular use case this would be helpful for is when operators are using tablets to view displays while in the field. In these cases, it would be easy to accidentally swipe on a trend and change the time range for the display, which may lead to the operator reading old data by mistake and making adjustments to the process based on data…

  14. remove delete button

    Please make it much more work to delete a display from PI Vision. Currently, you have the Delete Display button right next to the Save button in the Display settings options. It is just to easy to click on the delete display and if not paying attention click on the acknowledge button. Please do something like what you do in Excel. There I have to enable the delete button.

  15. Simple crowdsourcing of custom symbols and complex displays

    Although developers can share custom code, there is no simple way to share a good custom symbol or even great display design across the global community, from the user, rather than the developer community.

    It would be great to have a drop folder that anyone can share some of the effort put into a great symbol or display in Pi Vision 4 . Then a simple voting system to rank them by stars or popularity by number of downloads could be tracked to create a sort order for the contributions. Contributions that make a threshold of user voting, or download…

  16. Lock Folder view in place in PI Vision

    Once you click on a display in the folder, the folder view goes away. What we would like to see, is that the folder view is kept on screen.

  17. Making the value bold when a trend is highlighted

    When several tags are trended on a trend symbol, it would be nice to have the value at the cursor corresponding to the highlighted tag writtem in a bigger font size and in Bold

  18. Having the remove tag option available again in table and trend symbols

    In Coresight, it was possible to easily remove a tag from a trend or a table just by clicking on the cross alongside the tag name.
    It was also possible to drag a tag from a trend or a table and drop it the create a new symbol.

    This feature has disappeared in PI Vision 2017 (need to go in the property panel to do that).

    Could you put it back again

  19. Having the Thumbnail representing the exact display content

    The thumbnails are not always representing correctly the real content of the display.
    It is a pitty because the représentation can also help to determine which display to use.
    The thumbnails are OK after importing the displays from Coresight.
    But are not updated if the display is modified afterwards

  20. Provide a mode for symbols to auto fit to the screen

    In PI coresight, adding a trend or an other symbol to the drawing area arranged it to fit the full drawing zone.
    It was very convenient to make ad-hoc analysis.
    The current design mode of PI Vision is good to design nice and welle positioned symbols.
    Would it be possible to get those two modes available
