I am curious if there is a way to change the default formatting of data I paste into D-Plot. I am producing a series of graphs attempting to show how well a set of generated values complies with existing data curves. So, I have a whole bunch of existing d-plot graphs that have various curves on them. I want to take data points from excel and paste those points into the existing d-plot graphs, but I would prefer they paste as individual points, rather than as a single curve. Obviously I can manually select the pasted curve and change the linestyle, but I have a lot of graphs I am doing this to, so I was curious if there was a way to set d-plot to paste points as symbols, rather than lines, by default.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Not really. About the best you can do is write a short macro and assign a shortcut key to it. For example this:

LineType(-1,0) ' Sets ALL line styles to None
SymbolType(-1,288) ' Sets ALL symbol styles to filled-in circles

Of course if you don't want to do this for all curves then you'd need to be more specific on the curve index.

Sounds good. Fortunately the curve is question is consitent between all the graphs in question, so I can just set the macro to do the one I need. Thanks for the advice.
