tuple-marker in style sheet

Hallo,

is it possible, and if so how, to define a marker with the tuple
definition (numsides, style, angle) [1] inside a style sheet (or
matplotlibrc)?

For normal markers I use the axes.prop_cycle like

axes.prop_cycle: cycler("marker", ["x", "+", "1"])

. If I now want to insert a tuple like marker,

axes.prop_cycle: cycler("marker", ["x", "+", (5, 2, 1)])

  then it is being transformed into a string `"(5, 2, 1)"`.
If I don't use parenthesis like in other tuple values in the
matplotlibrc (e. g. `#lines.dashed_pattern : 2.8, 1.`[2]) then it is
interpreted as three different marker styles which do not exist [3].

[2] http://matplotlib.org/_static/matplotlibrc
[3] in my example: `ValueError: Unrecognized marker style 5`

Many thanks,

Julian

This *might* be fixed in master. Which version of matplotlib are you using?

Ah, ok. I tested it with matplotlib 2.0.2 (anaconda Python 3.6.2 build)

Ah, ok. I tested it with matplotlib 2.0.2 (anaconda Python 3.6.2 build)

Now I also tested the current master branch from github, but I also get
the same error message if I use parenthesis.
Do you know of which issue you were thinking of?

Hmmm, might be an issue with respect to specifying custom dash styles. It
had a similar problem to this.
