Here is a routine that I go through a lot. Take some data set, do a fit or two, then plot the data along with the fit(s). Simple enough to do. Now, how can I do a Legend that incorporates both the data (usually points) and the fits (usually lines)? I can use PlotLegends to get the lines bit, but I usually put the points on the Plot with Epilog. One thing I thought of was to generate a dense Table of the fitting function(s) and then use ListLinePlot along with Legends; however, here all works, except the Legends entry for the data is a line and not a point even though I used something like Joined->{False,True,True} to put points down for the data and lines for the fits.
