We have an open request for a per-symbol value attribute setting (PLI 16021OSI8) that isn't scheduled for work. Honestly, I would find it cumbersome to make users change this per symbol. If the larger issue is real estate or layout of symbols on a display, there are better ways to handle that. For this application, I would turn off the display of the Value Attributes on all symbols and use the Details window to review the incidence of them on a particular, selected symbol.

Hey Laurie...OK just read through the PLI. Sounds like what I need - especially setting this per symbol.
I tend to have displays that do most of the work for users so I would prefer to do this via automation, but for now users can choose to display them or not. Just makes my display not look so pretty!
As an example, what I have is a quick overview display that has numerous multistated Rectangle symbols in shape of squares - as there can be many they are quite small. It gives a very quick overview and allows a user to quick home in on a problem area. With Value Attributes being shows the arrow is the same size as the square and you can't see the current state colour.
Anyway, I will wait patiently and probably manipulate procbook.ini for now.
