1.39 FAQ-156 How does the legend change when adding/removing plots?

Last Update: 6/29/2018

From version 9.1, Origin forces the legend to be updated when adding plot to a graph by default.

To prevent the forced update of the legend when adding a plot:

  1. When the graph is active, select Format: Page Properties from Origin menu. (or Press F2)
  2. Choose the Legends/Titles tab on the right panel.
  3. Select None from the Legend Update Mode dropdown list. This option will be saved with the graph template.

To make the legend reconstruct when adding/removing plots,

  1. With the graph is activated, select Format: Page Properties from Origin menu. (or Press F2)
  2. Choose the Legends/Titles tab on the right panel of the Plot Details dailog.
  3. Select Reconstruct when Adding/Removing from the Legend Update Mode drop-down list.
