I have two questions regarding ListLinePlot:

  1. I plot three data on the same frame, I use ListLinePlot, but the lines connecting the points connect them from the right instead of connecting the center of the points

  2. I want to plot thick points with thin lines I use the following code but for some reason "pointsize" doesn't work no matter what the size I write the points look the same

Note that the following is not the data I plot but I added arbitrary data so you can run the ListLinePlot:

    $\begingroup$ "connecting from the center" is probably related to this q/a: Point Renderings Slightly Off in Mathematica $\endgroup$

I have noticed that myself using the Win7 frontend. The plotmarkers are often placed poorly, the lines are correct. For larger plotmarkers you don't notice it, but look at this:

On the Raspberry Pi it renders better, so it must be a FrontEnd issue.

Use ListPlot[{d1, d2, d3}, Frame -> True, PlotMarkers -> {Graphics[{PointSize[.1], Point[{0, 0}]}]}, Joined -> True] instead!


I don't understand what you mean about connecting from the right instead of the center. On the other hand, to control the size of the PlotMarkers, you can use the setting {Automatic, size}, e.g.:

ListLinePlot[{d1,d2,d3}, PlotMarkers->{Automatic,20}, Frame->True]
