Additional Controls

Default

Select the font to be used when Default is selected from the font drop-down list in the Text Control dialog box.

Note: When you open a co-worker's project containing text labels created using the "default" font, note that you may see some differences because Origin displays these text labels using your default font.

Align Fonts with Baseline

This check box applies to all text labels using multiple fonts. When this check box is selected, the bottom of the letters and symbols in a line of a text label align horizontally (for most fonts). This is useful when using several different fonts in the same line of a text label, particularly when using Greek symbols.

Footnote Size Ratio Change the footnote font size in all analysis reports. Value is a percentage of the default font size. See this FAQ for usage.
Make Text Horizontal for In-Place Editing

Select this check box to rotate text labels to the horizontal position during in-place editing. Original orientation is restored when text label is de-selected.

Clear the check box to maintain the text label's true orientation while editing.

Simple Selection Mode

Select this check box to disable mouse-click access to the rotation and skewing handles of a label.

Disable In-place Editing

Select this check box to disable the in-place editing mode. When the in-place editing mode is disabled, double-clicking the label opens the Text Control dialog box.
