# PlotMarkers

 PlotMarkersis an option for graphics functions like ListPlot and ListLinePlot that specifies what markers to draw at the points plotted.
• The following settings can be used:
 None no markers Automatic standard sequence of markers {Automatic,s} standard sequence of markers with size s g markers consisting of copies of expression g {g,s} expression g at size s {g1,g2,...} expression for dataset i {{g1,s1},{g2,s2},...} expressions at sizes
• For a single list of points, PlotMarkers specifies that ordinary Point objects should be used to indicate each point.
• PlotMarkers uses a predefined standard sequence of markers for successive lists of points.
• With PlotMarkers->g, a copy of the graphic or other expression g is placed so that its alignment point lies at the position of the point it indicates.
• With PlotMarkers, the object g is scaled so that one unit of its coordinates corresponds to a fraction s of the width of the whole graphic.
• The symbolic values Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large can be used for s. With these values the size of the markers is independent of the total width of the graphic.
• With PlotMarkers the are used cyclically for successive dataset lists.
