Customiziation of the default appearance of ad-hoc trends and the PI Trend web part is limited to determining the visibility of the four legend components and the title of trends, by changing properties in the defaultTrendProperties.SER file. However, there is no supported mechanism for changing the text itself.
Follow-up: the defaultTrendProperties.SER file is located in the PI WebParts data folder, which is contained in the installation folder (typically “…\Program Files\PIPC\RtWebParts\data”).
The specific settings are as follows. Each element value can be set to “true” (show) or “false” (hide):
ShowDescription – controls the visibility of the trace Description in the trend legend.
e.g. <ShowDescription>true</ShowDescription> causes the trace Description to be displayed in the trend legend.
ShowEngUnits – controls the visibility of the trace’s Engineering Units in the trend legend.
e.g. <ShowEngUnits>true</ShowEngUnits> causes the Engineering Units to be displayed in the trend legend.
ShowTagName – controls the visibility of the trace’s Name in the trend legend.
e.g. <ShowTagName>true</ShowTagName> causes the trace’s Name to be displayed in the trend legend.
ShowTitle – controls the visibility of the trend Title.
e.g. <ShowTitle>false</ShowTitle> causes the trend Title to be hidden.
ShowValue – controls the visibility of the trace’s current value in the trend legend.
e.g. <ShowValue>true</ShowValue> causes the current value of the trace to be displayed in the trend legend.
Changes to these settings affect default values for new instances of PI Trend web parts, any ad hoc trends, and any PI Trend web part instances to which the System Default configuration is subsequently applied.
Paul, thank you fo your help!

Hi, Is there any known way to change the text size of the point names and descriptions. I would like to do this in the ad hoc trend region as well as the on hover fly out text.
