ORG-3345 Plot Box chart would delete some source data Plot Box chart after some complex manipulation would delete some source data
ORG-4893 Wrong template for PP plot in template library Select PPExp, PPLog or PPWeibull would just open dialog iwth distribution as Normal, but not the corresponding type
ORG-5673 Add long label with substitution from Labtalk make Origin crash Run LabTALK Command label -s -n LTLongname longtext make Origin crash
ORG-5864 CTRL+Scale(Zoom)-In Enlarged graph failed to retain the original legend CTRL+Scale-In to pop up an enlarged graph window. Only first dataset shows in legend. Fixed now so it shows the same legend as original graph.
ORG-6710 Too many special points can lead to wrong setting. E.g. some wrong color is used in plot. We had an internal limit of 40 special points. We have increased the upper limit to 99 in Origin 9.0.

ORG-5429 Graph Refresh Issues for column plot with Indpendent Edit Mode When Edit Mode is Independent for a group of column/bar plots, changing spacing failed to be applied to data other than first data.
ORG-5859 Offset column/bars across layers should ignore non-column/bar type plots Several column plots did not placed evenly on the ticks when plot the cluster of bars with offset across layers.

Data Manipulation

JIRA Summary Details
ORG-6806 Unstack column recalculation fails if the unstacked output is in different folder from source data If the result worksheet of Unstack Column operation is moved to another folder. When changing parameters, the operation would be broken. Fixed in 9.0.

Set Column/Matrix Values

JIRA Summary Details
ORG-3253 Set Column Values failed to consider subrange notation in before formula script Suppose Before Formula Script is range r1=[book1]"Sheet1"!Col(A)[4:8]; and user enter r1 as Formula, whol col A was put in column.
ORG-4829 Mask notation <> using index i failed to work in Set Column Values.
  • New a workbook, and fill row number in col(A).
  • Highlight col(B) to open Set Column Values dialog.
  • Enter "col(A)" in formula box. Click OK.
  • All filled with missing value except the first cell.
ORG-4843 Range variable with [i, j] index in Set Values tool for matrix failed to compute cell values
  • In Set Matrix value dialog, set Before Formula Script: range m=[ MBook1 ]Msheet1!1;
  • Set Cell(I,j) formula to be m[ i, j ]

( Only the cell(1,1) was filled.

ORG-5198 Can't get the right result with math funciton in matrix book This problem also exists in all OC-based functions (usually in internal.c), like acot( x ), csc( x ), secant( x ), asec( x ), acsch( x ), degrees( x ) etc. E.g.
  • New a matrix book.
  • Open set matrix value dialog box.Enter cell(i,j)=cot( x )
  • All the cells was filled in 0.64209.
ORG-5566 Failed to define partial range in SCV if Insert Mode is Sheet/Column Index
  • Select menu Variables: Insert Range Variable to open Range Browser.
  • Choose Sheet/Column Index as Insert Mode.
  • Add col(A) to bottom panel, click the ... button to open Range dialog, specify From 4 To 12.
  • Click OK to return Set Values dialog.
  • "range r1 = Col(1);" was filled to Before Formula Scripts box, but it should be "range r1 = Col(1)[4:12];"
ORG-6739 Range did not update when calling function with scalar output in Set Column Values.
  • E.g. Set col(B)'s value as mean(col(A)). Then enter values in new rows in col(A). Col(B) doesn't update.
mean(col(A)) produce a scalar value. Assigning scalar value to column will not change its upper bound. Only assigning by vector will do. Workaround is provided.
  • Workaround 1: Add wcol(_ThisColNum)=col(A) in Before Formula Scripts.
  • Workaround 2: Set formula as ds. Add the following in Before Formula Scripts.
range rr = col(A);
dataset ds;
ds = mean(rr);


Non Linear Curve Fit

JIRA Summary Details

ORG-5341 Run-time error for nlfit multi-peaks using window search method Do concatenate fit of multiple data, number of replica is not 0, and peak finding method is Window Search, result sheet was blank and general operation failure showed in Messages log. Runtime error may happen too.
ORG-3911 "Concatenate Fit" fails to Use Source Graph Scale Type to generate X Data for Fitted Curve If X axis is log scale and user does concatenate fit, the fitted curve was in linear scale instead of log scale.
ORG-6790 Matching Result sheet failed to be found in Fitl Comparison tool. Compare Models does not detect fit result sheets since Input Data expressions were not the same.
ORG-242 When source grouped plots have offset, the output curves of fitting tools can now follow the proper offset.
