06/24/2019ShirleyTianHi khasidah94,

The watermark "Demo" means that you are using our trail version,
Please consider to purchase our latest product Origin 2019b to remove the watermark and get the full functions.

BTW, Origin 2017b has been released for a long time, its trail version should be expired. Please consider to download our 2019b trail to evaluate more,
