Controlling colors with multiple JITTER scatter plots

I'm copying this from a question on Reddit.  I figured there are some experts here that could help, and the Q&A might help the community here as well.

 

 

I'm trying to make jitter plots in SAS 9.4. I'd really like to have the symbols vary but keep the color consistently black, but SAS doesn't like this. I can change my symbol, but not the color. Code is below (in case it help).

Thanks for any help!

 

PROC SGPLOT Data = Simdsigs;
TITLE "Mean Cycle Length: Simulation Data";
SCATTER x = Type y = MCL_R / JITTER
markerfillattrs = (COLOR = 'black')
markerattrs=(SYMBOL=circleFilled)
;
SCATTER x = type y = MCL_F / JITTER
markerattrs=(SYMBOL=diamondFilled)
markerfillattrs = (COLOR = black)
;
xaxis offsetmin=0.2
offsetmax = 0.2;
yaxis label='Mean Cycle Length (ms)';
RUN;

Re: Controlling colors with multiple JITTER scatter plots

MARKERFILLATTRS should be use only when you want the outline of the marker to be different from the fill. In this case, you should just set the color on the MARKERATTRS, like this:

 

markerattrs=(SYMBOL=circleFilled color=black)

Hope this helps!
