The 2 Point Segment graph is created from the LINESYMB.OTP template (installed to the Origin program folder).


The line connection between points alternates between a straight line and no line (the connection type is set to 2 Point Segment on the Line tab of the Plot Details dialog box (Format: Plot)). ). Thus, every two consecutive data points are connected by a line (the first and second data points, the third and fourth data points, etc.). The data points are displayed as symbols.
