I am trying to replicate a result in the paper of Sanjay Matange (Tips and Tricks for Clinical Graphs using ODS Graphics), but cannot make the plus symbol appear, please see the attachment. The problem is the same whether I ran the program in 9.2 or 9.3.

The log did not show any issues. What might be the reason?

Here is the program:

proc format;
      value risk 1='ALL' 2='AML-Low Risk' 3='AML-High Risk';
   
   data BMT;
      input Group T Status @@;
      format Group risk.;
      label T='Disease Free Time';

Two plots (one with GROUP) are used to show grouped markers in the plot, but a black marker in the legend.  If you put the grouped plot in the legend, you will see three markers (for the three levels).   I would use SCATTER instead of STEP for the censored events.

Are you supposed to have this line twice:

step x=time y=censored / markerattrs=(symbol=plus) name='censored';

step x=time y=censored / group=stratum markerattrs=(symbol=plus);

Thank you Sanjay! By using the scatter plot, the plus symbol is now showing correctly.

You need to add the MARKERS option to display the markers for a step plot.  However, for the markers, I suggest using a scatter plot, not Step.
