However, the following with nested lists is equivalent to the use of Directive Plot[{Cos[x], Sin[x]}, {x, 0, 2 Pi}, PlotStyle -> {{Thick, Red}}] Bob Hanlon ---- Mark McClure <mcmcclur at unca.edu> wrote: ============= On Mon, Jul 19, 2010 at 2:10 AM, Kevin J.

Try Plot[{Cos[x], Sin[x]}, {x, 0, 2 Pi}, PlotStyle -> Directive[Thick, Red]] vs Plot[{Cos[x], Sin[x]}, {x, 0, 2 Pi}, PlotStyle -> List[Thick, Red]] Mark McClure
