Curve Fitting

  • For G and J Origin, User defined fdf file name doesn't update with the name user specified.
  • NLFit gives unwanted empty input error when change input data on fitting from loose data ID = 11775 (SR2)
  • Wrong plot was added to reportsheet when change replica number from 0 to >0 in Change Parameters dialog of NLFit ID=11765 (SR2)
  • Recalculate failed in Assays.ogw When changing number of column and function ID=11525 (SR2)
  • Missing "Copy Footnote" context menu item ID = 11769 (SR2)
  • Replica fit and PA fit failed with user-defined function of OriginC form (SR2)
  • Constraints is not available in PA tool or when using replicas in NLFit. ID = 11463 (SR2)
  • 4-th order Polynomial Regression not working well in Origin8 (SR2)
  • Script After Fitting does not work when part of theme, if theme invoked from menu, ID=11014 (SR3)
  • Script After Fitting and Linear Constraint do not work as part of template – change parameter shows those are missing(SR3)
  • Replica sharing failed after recalculate, ID= 12124 (SR3)
  • Fixed value from 2nd dataset failed to work for independent fit after recalculate, ID= 12125 (SR3)
  • NLFit Param Sharing and Fixed values theme saving shifted for 2rd set and on, ID = 12105 (SR3)
  • Fit twice for one graph, new pasted table was replaced by old one ID= 11726 (SR5)
  • Moving Category of Fitting Function will break Recalculate ID=11956 (SR5)
  • Parameter values and bounds are wrong in Change Parameters for independent fit ID=12042 (SR3)
  • Find XY cannot work for Multi-Independent variables User-defined Function ID=12058 (SR5)
  • Use Drag and Drop to install Fitting Function(fdf) will lost Some Setting ID=11954 (SR5)

Data Exploration

Data Manipulation

  • Set Column/Matrix Values dialog auto run when it has formula ID 11759(SR2)

Export

  • Graph and Layout Windows that have pasted EMF images on them may not show the entire image when exporting in a vector (SR0)

format such as EPS or PDF. When an image gets pasted onto an Origin graph, the image will either come in as a EMF or a

BMP. This setting is controlled by a property that can be set from the Script Window: system.display.pastemeta = Set this property to 1 (system.display.pastemeta=1) to paste as an EMF and 0 (system.display.pastemeta=0) for a BMP.

If you set to 0 and then re-paste your image as a BMP, the image will then appear in its entirety in the exported

graph.

  • Export Area exchange can't take effect to Image Size immediately when export as Image File ID=11578(SR5)

General

  • For 80sr1 users patched from sr0, they must download all help files to make F1 work. Otherwise, for some dialogs, no Help file shows when press F1. This is not a bug though because it's caused by some mismatch between sr0 and sr1.
  • Group clients uses Origin 8C registry instead of Origin 8. ID=12147 (SR3)
  • Failure to disconnect from group in Set Group Folder location dialog. (SR3)
  • Partial range failed to be auto selected (resolved) for Range type when no X column exists ID=12205 (SR3)
  • If source data is changed by another XF using <input> as output, related recalculate cannot be triggered.ID = 10277 (SR5)

Graph

  • Plot Details and Color dialog cause Origin crash. ID = 11858 (SR2)
  • Default fonts not used in some templates. ID = 11902 (SR2)
  • Crash in plot details dialog. ID = 11864 (SR3)
  • Failed to add cursor on plot, Origin turned infinite loop. ID = 12127 (SR3)
  • Rescale or Zoom will break Link Axes Scales ID=12169 (SR3)
  • Fail to undo the deletion of a graph layer. ID = 12121 (SR3)
  • Problems with the Plot Setup dialog box, when adding plots (SR3)
  • The All in Active Folder (Open) option in Graph:Merge Graph Windows will exclude minimized graph windows. ID = 12966. (SR4)
    • Any graph windows you do not wish to include need to be hidden (and visible in Project Explorer only).

Plotting

  • Add Plot to Layer menu failed to select the correct plot type in Plot Setup dialog, ID=12131 (SR3)
  • Scatter is lost in YYEr plot ID=12287 (SR3)

Office 2007

  • Problems when opening documents saved office2007 format (e.g.docx, pptx)(SR2)
  1. Slowness
  2. Results Log opens
  3. Multiple instances of Origin session open in Task Manager
  • If you paste link a graph in Word 2007 and then save the Word document as a .docx file, then when you later make

changes to the graph in the Origin project file, the graph is not updated in the saved .docx file. This same problems

occurs in PowerPoint 2007. (SR2)

  • If you open an Excel 2007 file in Origin and select to keep the Excel file external to the Origin project, you will

then be unable to save the Origin project file. This problem does not occur if the Excel file is opened internal to

the Origin project file.(SR2)

  • If you copy a graph in which the Copy Page Settings (in Tools:Options) are set to Tight, and paste the graph in

PowerPoint/Word 2007, then if you save your PowerPoint as a PDF, the Origin graphs in the PDF are truncated at the

bottom and right sides.(SR2)

Image Processing

  • Can't run Origin8 and Origin 7.5 dongle version at the same time.
  • When Origin 8 with dongle management is installed on J OS, the following message appears, "The current language is

  3. Failure to open xlsx file (SR2)
  4. "Singe Peak Fit.xls" and "Analysis Template.xls" in Samples\Automation Server\Excel folder do not work (SR4)

Origin C

Signal Processing

  • Amplitude gets incorrectly scaled when Spectrum Type drop-down is changed, and it is supposed to only affect power (SR4)

Spectroscopy

    CCE
    Weibull3

  • PA failed to fit with more than one user-defined function, ID =12134 (SR3)
  • In PA Moments calcultion for Peak are wrong from 2nd dataset whe running multiple fitting function ID=12288 (SR3)

Statistics

  • One-Samples t-Test's opj created in SR0 or SR1 failed to recalculate in later versions.(SR2)

Worksheet

  • Patch processs couldn't update toolbars info. in registry. So new Merge button on Style toolbar will not show. User has to drag it to existing Style toolbar. (SR2)
