Hello. I was wondering if anyone could explain the following behavior. On my system, (Mac, Ver 8) if I look at the options for ListPointPlot3D, I see the option for Method listed twice. The code I was working with tried to find symbols with certain options. For example, looking for the option "Method" at the top level, found the option listed twice in the following 8 symbols. {DensityHistogram, ListPointPlot3D, ProbabilityPlot, ProbabilityScalePlot, QuantilePlot, SmoothDensityHistogram, SmoothHistogram, SmoothHistogram3D} For example: Options[ListPointPlot3D] AlignmentPoint->Center etc... Lighting->Automatic Method->Automatic Method->Automatic PlotLabel->None etc... Another... Options[DensityHistogram] AlignmentPoint->Center etc... Method->Automatic Method->Automatic PerformanceGoal:>$PerformanceGoal etc... Again, I am just curious. I see that they are all Plotting functions. Hmmm ?? = = = = = = = = = = Dana DeLouis Mac & Mac 8 = = = = = = = = = =
