I'm using ListLinePlot to plot a list containing 10 lists, using the default colors:


I would like to be able to keep the default PlotStyle options for the 9 first lists, but not for the last one. I tried to do:

myStyle = Append[Table[{Automatic}, {9}], {Green,Thickness[0.01]}];
ListLinePlot[myList, PlotStyle -> {myStyle}]

but all the lists are plotted in {Green,Thickness[0.01]}

What's the best way to do that?

The problem is just a syntax error. Maybe the question is still useful, to demonstrate how the fonctionality can be achieved ? – andre Feb 25 '13 at 14:43
Why don't you use Show? That's what it is for. – rcollyer Feb 25 '13 at 15:05

  myList = Sort /@ RandomReal[1, {10, 100}];
  myStyle = Append[Table[Automatic, {9}], 
  Directive[{Green, Thickness[0.01]}]]; 
  ListLinePlot[myList,  PlotStyle -> myStyle]

replace {myStyle} by myStyle

 myStyle = Append[Table[{Automatic}, {9}], {Green, Thickness[0.01]}];
 ListLinePlot[myList, PlotStyle -> myStyle]

erf so stupid... thanks! – Sulli Feb 25 '13 at 14:37
I would be good if the question was corrected from this problem. Then I delete my answer (don't care the +20 of rep). – andre Feb 26 '13 at 14:03
