This may be merely an artifact of how a "dot" is displayed using pixels. You might try ListPlot instead to see if you get better results. For example: pts = Table[{x, Sin[x]}, {x, 0, Pi, Pi/100.}]; ListPlot[pts, PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.005]] Robert Rosenbaum wrote: > In regards to my first e-mail, asking about how to make a dotted > plot.
