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.

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:
