Marker Shapes

The <marker-shape> setting is used to specify "markers" (pictograms) in scatterplots and while drawing legends.

Below you can find a list of built-in standard markers. In addition to the standard markers, you can use any unicode character as a custom marker and combine any marker shape with any other marker shape.

Syntax

The syntax for specifing markers is:

;; standard markers
(<marker-name>)

;; custom unicode markers
(custom <C>)

;; combined markers
(combine (<M>)...)

Examples:

;; standard "hexagon" marker
(hexagon)

;; custom unicode marker
(custom "◐")
