Hello ! You have 2 possibilities. (Please note two mistakes in your code : First mistake : dist2= (not dist2-) Second mistake : ...5] /@ cy}], Frame -> True]; (not /@ cy2) ) 1) First possibility : Using your idea, just add Axes->True ! Show[Graphics[ {PlotSymbol[Star, 3] /@ cy}], Frame -> True, Axes -> True]; (You can use Star, Box, Diamond or Triangle) Looking in <<Graphics`MultipleListPlot` , you will see other possibilities of creating your own symbol shapes. 2) Second possibility : (easier) Just use MultipleListPlot. It's done for this... MultipleListPlot[cy, SymbolShape -> PlotSymbol[Star, 4], SymbolStyle -> {Red}] Regards F.Jaccard -----Message d'origine----- De : Claus [mailto:Clausenator at gmail.com] Envoyé : jeudi, 29. juin 2006 06:09 À : mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Objet : [mg67507] Change Symbol in ListPlot Hello, I'm creating a List Plot in the following way. That is fine, "but" it creates dots as the symbols. Is there a way to change the symbol (from a dot to say a cross) in a ListPlot environment? I got it to change in a Graphics environment, but then there are no axes. Which environment is better for which occasions? Thank you all for your help, I am really new to Mathematica! Now the "code" with Listplot, that I can make to show plots only: <<Statistics`StatisticsPlots` <<Statistics`NormalDistribution` dist=NormalDistribution[2,1.5]; SeedRandom[1]; x1=RandomArray[dist,100]; dist2-NormalDistribution[0,1]; SeedRandom[2]; y1=RandomArray[dist2,100]; z=0.8*x1+y1 cy=Transpose[{x1,z}]; ListPlot[cy, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"t1", "z"}, PlotStyle -> {GrayLevel[0.1], AbsolutePointSize[10]}]; \\If I use the Graphics package, I can use "PlotSymbol", but I don't have axes: Show[Graphics[ {PlotSymbol[Box, 5] /@ cy2}], Frame -> True]; Thanks for your help!
