Try something like this ch = Graphics[{Yellow, Disk[{0, 0}, Offset[5]], Yellow, Black, Circle[{0, 0}, Offset[5]], Red, Disk[{0, 0}, Offset[3]], Black, Circle[{0, 0}, Offset[3]]}, ImageSize -> 20 ] With[{f = {Cos[x] + Sin[x], Sin[x]}}, Graphics[Table[{Hue[t/(2 Pi), 1, .8], Arrowheads[{{.1, 1, ch}}], Arrow[{f, Normalize[D[f, x]]/20 + f}]} /. x -> t, {t, 0, 2 Pi, .1}]]] Or this With[{f = {Cos[x] + Sin[x], Sin[x]}}, Graphics[Table[{Hue[t/(2 Pi), 1, .8], Arrowheads[{{.1, 1, ch}}], Arrow[{f, Normalize[D[f, x]]/10 + f}]} /. x -> t, {t, 0, 2 Pi, .1}]]] You can change the arrow head shape at will substituting the graphics form in 'ch' E. martin-Serrano -----Mensaje original----- De: cylurian [mailto:cylurian at gmail.com] Enviado el: mi=E9rcoles, 08 de febrero de 2012 11:26 Para: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Asunto: Something other than PlotStyle to change look of graphs I have three functions in one plot. I'm using PlotStyle to differentiate the graphs, but I need more options. I need each graph to have some special marker, like a diamond, circle, etc. I'm using Mathematica 8 and I'm also using PlotLegend. Any suggestions? My code is: Plot[{SurvivalFunction[WeibullDistribution[2.2, 3.2], x], SurvivalFunction[LogNormalDistribution[.1, .8], x], SurvivalFunction[ExponentialDistribution[.6], x]}, {x, 0, 5}, PlotStyle -> {{ Black, Thickness[Small]}, {Dashing[Tiny], Black}, {Dashing[Large], Black, Thickness[Large]}}, AxesLabel -> TraditionalForm /@ {t, "S(t)"}, Ticks -> None, DisplayFunction -> Identity, PlotLabel -> Style["Survival Curves", FontSize -> 18], PlotLegend -> {"Weibull", "LogNormal", "Exponential"}, LegendPosition -> {.3, -0.1}, LegendTextSpace -> 4, LegendLabelSpace -> .5, LegendLabel -> "Survival Curves", LegendOrientation -> Vertical, LegendBackground -> White, LegendSize -> .4, ShadowBackground -> White] thx.
