Key enhancements include ease-of-use features such as collapsible menus, project file search for string, thumbnail previews of graphs and tooltips displaying folder or window comments in Project Explorer, choice of icon- or details-listing of project contents, a redesigned graph Axis Dialog, and an improved graph legend with support for bubble scales.

Antoine Couturier, Ph.D., research engineer at the National Institute for Sports (INSEP) in Paris and a beta tester, remarked, “Besides new features such as Python scripting support which will satisfy many researchers and engineers, OriginLab has put special effort into improving usability in Origin 2015. An entirely redesigned axis dialog makes axis customization easy, while also providing extended functionality. Thumbnail previews of graphs in Project Explorer, and the ability to now search the project to find any metadata associated with various objects, simplifies working with large projects.”

Origin and OriginPro are used by more than 500,000 registered customers worldwide spanning Fortune Global 500 companies, research institutions, and colleges and universities across various disciplines including physics, chemistry, biology, pharmacology, engineering, and manufacturing.

Chris Drozdowski, chemistry student at Winston-Salem State University also beta tested this version and found the preview capability in Project Explorer to be very useful. "The addition of graph and metadata previews in Project Explorer has made managing large projects much easier. Searching for a particular graph used to involve opening numerous windows, but now it is as easy as running the mouse over the list of windows in Project Explorer.”
