Hi, I am new to use mathematica. I usually need to plot bar charts and 2D-graphs. Recently, I have had a problem with plotting a graph. I am trying to plot a labeled 2D-graph with TextListPlot command. I have 5 lists with {xi,yi,zi} pairs. "zi" values are standing for residue numbers of a molecule starting from 1 to 67 (not a continuous serial, there are some residues have no {xi,yi} data). My aim is to plot this 5 lists in the same graph, with different colors-and/or-styles(bold,italic,underline) for the residue numbers (zi-labels). For each list I did something like: plot1=TextListPlot[list1,TextStyle->{FontFamily->"Helvetica", FontSize->14, FontSlant->"Italic", FontColor->Blue}, PlotRange->{{...},{...}}, Frame->False, Axes->None] plot2, plot3, plot4 are written in the same way except with different FontColors. The last list which is called FrameList has a frame and axes: FrameList=TextListPlot[list5, TextStyle->{FontFamily->"Helvetica",FontSize->14,FontColor->Black},AxesOrigin->{...}, PlotRange->{the same range}, Frame->True, FrameStyle->AbsoluteTickness[1], FrameLabel->{"...","...", None, None}] Everthing goes well until this step. I have each plot with their own labels with different colors-and/or-styles(bold,italic,underline). Afterwards, to see all these plots in the same graph I write: DisplayTogether[{plot1,plot2,plot3,plot4,FrameList}, PlotRange->{the same range}, Frame->True, AxesOrigin->{the same values}, FrameLabel->{StyleForm["...", FontFamily->"Helvetica", FontSize->32, FontWeigth->"Bold", FontColor->Black], StyleForm["...",FontFamily->"Helvetica", FontSize->32, FontWeigth->"Bold", FontColor->Black],None,None}] In the end, I see all labels (zi-residue numbers) in Blue and Italic, which should be the situation only for list1 (plot1). I have tried several ways, and looked at MathGroupArchive, I still could not solve the problem. Different colors is working well with Plot and then PlotStyle command, but I need to use TextListPlot and define colors for the Text. Looking forward to hearing for any advise.
