A separate legend box for the markers only?

Hi matplotlib-users@,

I have a graph that looks like this [1], in which each line has
different markers for the same number of points. I'd like to add a
separate "legend box" (like the one already in the graph) for the
markers only:

   <circle>: description for circle
   <right triangle>: description for right triangle

How can I do this? After googling a bit I couldn't find an answer. Thanks a lot!

The plt.legend docstring says

   To make a legend for a list of lines and labels::

   legend( (line1, line2, line3), ('label1', 'label2', 'label3') )

So I would try something along the lines of

   # plot lines
   line1 = ax.plot(...)
   ...
   linen = ax.plot(...)
   lineleg = ax.legend((line1, ..., linen), ('linelabel1', ...))

   # plot symbols
   symb1 = ax.plot(...)
   ...
   symbn = ax.plot(...)
   symbleg = ax.legend((symb1, ..., symbn), ('symblabel1', ...))

Cheers,
  Andreas

Manually upgrade your production database.
When you want reliability, choose Perforce
Perforce version control. Predictably reliable.

Try googling "proxy artist", which leads to this page:
