Last Update: 9/18/2019

Origin would show "0" at the end of integer tick labels to indicate the precision. If you don't want such "0" in integer tick labels:

  1. Double click on the axis to open the Axis dialog.
  2. Go to the Tick Labels tab], and then Format sub-tab. Set Display to Custom and then set Custom Format to *

Note: You can combine * at the end of other syntax.

  • .1* means keep 1 decimal places and trim unnecessary zeros
  • *2* means keep two significant digits and trim unnecessary zeros
Note: Since Origin 2020, there is a system variable @TLC which can be used to show Zero as "0" without any trailing zero. This system variable only influences the axis label Zero, won't change any other label's trailing zeros.
