Origin Ver. 2019 and Service Release (Select Help-->About Origin):
Operating System: Win10

I'm dealing with a following issue. I'm using the newest origin version, while my collegues are stuck with some older versions. We used to share the data by embedding graphs into MS word document (e.g. article manuscript) and if someone wanted to edit something, he just double-clicked it, opened and edited it in origin.
Since my upgrade all the graphs I send to word document are copied as unicode origin objects that cannot be opened with old versions of origin. I can open it, save as old, *opj, project and then copy it to word, but it takes time and makes me create duplicates of projects.
Is there a setting in origin to make it copy graphs as 'non-unicode' graphs by default? I don't want to downgrade my origin, as I'm using a lot of its newest functions.
Perhaps you can suggest a solution.
Best regards,

We have an Origin System Variable @OPJ to handle this. According to this doc page:

It controls whether default to use the new file type (OPJU) when save the project and use the new file type (OGGU) when Copy Page to other software.

0 = Project to use new file type (OPJU) and copy graph page as new file type (OGGU)
1 = Project to use old file type (OPJ), but copy graph page as new file type(OGGU)
2 = Project to use new file type (OPJU), but copy graph page as old file type (OGG)
3 = Both will use old file type(OPJ & OGG)

To set the value you desire, Open the Command Window from the Window menu and type the following (substituting whatever value you want from above for n) and hit the Enter key. The value will be remembered from there:
