    Overall ACTs need a more rich set of formatting tools. I know this has been declined before, but it is important from a development stand point to have control over these types of things at the front end.

    ACTs are a wonderful format for information organization especially from a high level perspective. They fall short with some very low level customization.

    There is a work around to this, that can be annoying / cumbersome. However here it goes.

    Requirements: PI Vision 2021

    This will require a calculation, name the calculaiton the new column name you want. In the asset field drop in the relevent asset.

    the calculation for me is as follows

    > if BadVal('asset attribute') then "No Data" // you can leave this out if you don't mind displaying bad status to user

    > else 'asset attribute'

    Add this calculation to the comparison table and voila. This a bit janky but is a work around in the mean time.

    If you have come across this feedback post via google search. As a potential work around while this is implemented here is what you can do.

    Download Notepad++ and load in this user defined language. I made this because I got so frustrated using system explorer to write functions.

    I scraped all the expression Keywords and created a style guide that is very similar to what is used in PI System explorer. I created an extension called ".pse" so if you load ".pse" these are really just plain text files, into notepad++ with this UDL you will at least be able to leverage a nice text editor.

    You can now copy and paste the code into PI System Explorer, IMO this is bad development practice but if like me you can't stand only having 2 inches to code in this should work.

    Lastly there are plenty of videos / tutorials out there on how to create your own notepad++ style guides so if you don't like this one have at it.

    Edit: The forums will not let me attach the .XML file to the forum post I have uploaded it as a text file in the above post.

    Considering all the modern IDEs that exist for just about any coding language in existence, this has to be one of the largest deficits of the OSI PI Asset Framework offering in terms of developer experience.

    Having the ability to open an analysis or group of analysis into something that is akin to (Sublime Text, Atom, Notepad++,VIM, emacs w.e) type text editor would greatly improve the experience of every engineer and developer.

    The ultimate experience would be something like just having a text editor with a directory of your various analysis. Almost like if System Explorer had a separate portal to only managing and developing analyses. But instead of being locked in that portal it opened a separate space where we can still view the hierarchy of our assets and still browse around ect.

    Resizing windows isn't enough but it would be a massive improvement.

    Is there any movement on this? Because as of right now I'm not seeing a clear way to defend against all of the error types for analysis that have multiple inputs. Having an analysis just blanket evaluate to 'Calculation Failure' from a bad value from one of many tags means writing the same defensive statement for every tag and every instance. Couple that with the analysis "IDE" window in AF System explorer that is like 2 inches wide and not expandable just makes for a less than desirable experience.

    This feature has been flagged as evaluating for nearly 4 years. Has there been much in the way of movement on this item?
