Hi,
I plotted two lines that are nearly overlapping and I want to change the colour of one of the two.
However, I can't select it because Origin always marks the one in the front as selected.
Even if I disable that line in the object manager and click on the remaining line, it will still select the invisible other line...

Thanks,
Matthias

Use Labtalk to change the plot parameters:
set <dataset_name> -c <color#>

Hello,

1. In Object Manager, if u left click the plot, mini toolbar shows up as well to edit the corresponding plot.

2. I am not sure which version of Origin you are using. In Origin 2023, Click the plot in front to see mini toolbar. Go to the 2nd tab (single man icon) and uncheck the Selectable button.


Then when you click on plot, it will only pick the one at bottom.

U can also go to Object Manager and click the plot on top and check selectable again to allow top plot be selected.

Thanks for the answer! This does work, however it just changes the data points for me, not the lines. I guess I just have to look into the command line tools to specify my commands better :)

Hi snow, thanks for the answer!
The funny thing is, even after selecting the "selectable" button and therefore technically making it unable to be selected, it somehow still selects that exact line when clicking on it.

Could you check if it's only an issue on this graph?

If so, could you share the graph as an oggu file or save the opju file for us to check?

Thanks, Snow

It's true, I can't reproduce it in a simple example.
I attached the opju file.
https://my.originlab.com/ftp/forum_and_kbase/Images/Copy.opju
It happens when I try to select the red line.
I managed to select the last data point of the red line in order to activate its label by deleting the blue line first and then replotting it.
But it's weird that I can't use the "selectable" option for the blue line.

Hi Tsaiim,

Thanks for sharing the opju. I can reproduce the issue with this opju.
The blue plot is selected even if i click on the black plot sometimes.
I created ORG-28193 for our developer to check.

Thanks, Snow

Hi Snow,

Yes, this is our jira number but we don't give user access to it.

But if this is solved in the future version (We just released 2024 yesterday), we will post update in this forum.

Thanks, Snow

Thank you for letting tsaiim know. I found several cases like this. I removed it to avoid confusion to future visitors.

Thanks, Snow

Hi Matthias,

Our developer found it's a bug when there are special points in graph, which will be fixed in next version.

For now, the simplest workaround it is click on red or black plot in Object manager and use mini toolbar to edit them.

Or right click g1 in Object Manager and choose Edit Mode: Independent
Then you will be able to uncheck Selectable for blue and click red or black in graph.

If u need to do some customization for the whole group, click g1 again and set Edit mode back to Dependent.

Thanks, Snow

The policy of fixing bugs only in the next version looks unfair to users.
