# PointSize

PointSize[d]

is a graphics directive which specifies that points which follow are to be shown if possible as circular regions with diameter d. The diameter d is given as a fraction of the total width of the plot.

# Details

• PointSize can be used in both two- and three-dimensional graphics, as well as in Style specifications.
• The following symbolic forms for d can be used: Tiny, Small, Medium, and Large. These specify absolute point sizes independent of the total width of the graphic.

## Basic Examples(2)

Specify the point sizes as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:

Set the sizes of points in plots using PlotStyle:

## Scope(1)

Symbolic values for predefined absolute point sizes:

## Properties & Relations(2)

PointSize defines the point size as a fraction of the total width of the graphic:

AbsolutePointSize defines the point size in units of printer's points:

## Possible Issues(2)

Large points can be clipped by a frame:

You can use PlotRangeClipping to control clipping at the PlotRange boundary:

PointSize is a scaled size that refers to the width of the graphic:

Use AbsolutePointSize to control the size:
