Hi Hemant one easy way may be you know this already... just try and check, save DCS graphics in JPEG format and blur or remove dynamic values of DCS tags using paint and save again into JPEG/BMP and than import directly that graphics into Processbook.
There are 2 to 3 options before importing of graphics inside Processbook based upon image setting and color just refer below video for detail.
If above is not fruitful to you than as a trial just check the property of your svg. files by opening in notepad may be some kind of scripting... which is not compatible in Processbook just remove some part randomly and import again into Processbook.

A couple of pointers on images in ProcessBook:
* Select to fit the boundary rectangle around the picture when importing it to display it without distortion (i.e. wrong aspect ratio)
* Resize your images in MSPaint or another image processing software before you use it, instead of letting PB do it.
* Be aware that you should keep imported images below 1000 x 1000 pixels, ProcessBook has problems handling larger images.
OSIsoft uses bits from Symbol Factory 2.0 from Software Toolbox to handle the symbol library functionality. The pro's of using symbols is that you can import vector graphics, and we won't get affected by the 1000 px limit mentioned above. We've used this approach to import P&ID/process drawings and schematics in ProcessBook several times. If you obtain the software you can create and import your own symbol libraries.

It's worth checking out!
Thanks, asle & Lalit.
i'll try & get back.
I have done some work on this and after a while the best solution is to build up a picture of your own DCS to some level of detail with the tools available in PI Process Book. Given Layers and all the available symbols and the order in which they are placed you I am sure will be able to get very close to the actual DCS view.
