FAQ-803 When I print a graph with overlapped layers, the layer are not aligned correctly. How can I solve it?

Last Update: 12/6/2015

Supposed you have a multi-layer graph, such as a stack graph, some of the layers are linked to others. When you print this graph from Origin directly, you may find the overlapped layers are not aligned correctly. To work around the problem,

  1. Double click on the graph to open the Plot Details dialog. Select the children layer on the left panel and active Layer tab on the right panel.
  2. Change the children layer's Units to % of Linked Layer (this option is only available in the linked layers), and then modify the Layer Area values to be more precise like 0, 100 etc.
