Use the 2D Graphics Inspector under the Graphics menu. I think that  
while this is largely settled upon you may find slightly different  
behavior between different OS's.  e.g. on  a Mac with  three button  
mouse the middle button is used to select the actual plot itself  
before the thickness etc can be changed BUT I still have a beta  
version here so, the full functionality may have changed and I  
suspect will keep changing over time. I don't think there is anything  
written on the actual Graphics Inspector GUI itself, probably because  
1. it's self explanatory and 2. the underlying graphics options  
controlling plots are already well documented, e.g. see help on  
Thickness etc.
