1.74 FAQ-204 How to reverse the order of curves in a waterfall plot?

Last Update: 11/5/2019

Origin has both "2D" and "3D" waterfall templates and the differences between them sometimes cause confusion.


For 3D waterfall plots
Plot > 3D: 3D Waterfall, 3D Waterfall Y:Color Mapping, 3D Waterfall Z:Color Mapping

  1. Double-click the axis of the scale that you want to reverse. This opens the Axis dialog box.
  2. Click the Scale tab, then clear or check the Reverse box.


For 2D waterfall plots
Plot > 3D: Waterfall, Waterfall Y:Color Mapping, Waterfall Z:Color Mapping

  1. Double-click the axis of the scale that you want to reverse. This opens the Axis dialog box.
  2. Exchange the From and To values and change the Increment value to a negative value (e.g. 2 becomes -2).
