If a column contains When date column is the same day, Origin 2024b now displays time to treat X to be same day. For some plots, the last data point is at 23:59 and the last tick is slightly after that and thus the tick label is showing 00:00 since it has reached 24

A new default palette makes it easy to prepare colorblind-accessible figures.

When worksheet format is already set, tick label format of Date/Time data will follow the column’s display format.

Improvements made to legend updating when a plot is removed from graph.

When creating a plot with plotvm or plotmultivm, it will automatically set column label notation to refer to XYZ titles. For example, since %H means source sheet, the Long Name of the 1st column in the source sheet could be %(%@H, 1, L).
