HistProb.OTP (installed to the Origin program folder).


The two layers in the Histogram + Probabilities graph template are linked. Therefore, before you make changes to the X axis scale or to the dimensions of the layer, make sure that the parent layer -- layer 1 -- is the active layer. This will ensure that the child layer axis scales and dimensions -- in this case, layer 2 -- are adjusted accordingly.

This menu command/toolbar button plots a cumulative sum of observations in a second graph layer (layer 2).

Additionally, the Histogram + Probabilities menu command types the statistical results on the Results Log-- the mean, the standard deviation, the maximum and minimum values, and the total number of values.
