I had some issues with marker plots and automatic color cycling.
rcParams["lines.marker"] = "o"
rcParams["lines.linestyle"] = "None"
for i in range(4):
which produces nice colorful dots "v" also works.
But changing the marker to '+' (or 'x')
rcParams["lines.marker"] = "+"
gives only black crosses. It would be nice if someone could please try this out. My guess is that the "o"s and "v"s do have some kind of black margin and a (colored) filling area which the "+"s and "x"s dont't have. If that's right then anyone should see this behavior. Thanx for your help.
