  1. Use DisplayDigits attribute in formatting of cells

    Use DisplayDigits attribute in formatting of cells. Note that hitting F9 will not reformat the cells if a change to the displaydigits is made. That includes if you change the tagname to a tag which has a different display digits attribute.

    Note: This was previously Enhancement 6319OSI8.

  2. Return the Values of Timestamp Data Items in Timestamp Format

    The values of timestamp tags or AF attributes should be formatted as timestamp in Excel by default. Currently they are returned as integers, and then users have to manually convert them into timestamps.

  3. Improve visibility for dark theme

    PI DataLink (specifically, the right sidebar that pops up when entering a current or archive value) is very hard to read in Dark Theme (office 365 only). If this could be resolved, that'd be great

  4. Resize all PI DataLink array formulas in the selected range

    Currently, you can only use "Recalculate (Resize) Function" on a single array formula at a time.

    Instead, please consider implementing this rule: all PI DataLink array formulas that have ≥1 cell in the selected range get recalculated and resized.
