Vertical Drop Line Graph Example

In Origin, the Vertical Drop Line plot type is a form of Scatter plot where the data points are displayed as symbols with vertical lines extending down to the bottom X axis. This feature can also be enabled in a Line & Symbol plot.

If you desire drop lines that drop toward the Y axis, Origin offers a horizontal drop line option.

To highlight specific data points with drop lines, Origin includes the ability to edit individual data points. In the graph seen here, the tallest peak value is highlighted in blue.

To learn more about the properties of this plot, view the Scatter plot details* page.
