PROC GPLOT -- Plotting symbol

I'm using PROC GPLOT. If I use V=POINT in the SYMBOL statement the point is so small I can barely see it. If I use V=DOT in the SYMBOL statement the dot is way too big, especially since the plot has about a hundred data points.

How can I make SAS use a plotting symbol that is a dot but a small dot? You'd think this would be easy to do but I can't manage it. I see the list of plotting symbols in the SAS GRAPH book but I don't see anything for a small dot. I assume the online documentation is similar.

I've found a semi-fix. If I use V=. then it uses a period as a plotting point, which is much more visible then if I use V=POINT.

That worked great. Thanks. As I suspected, the solution was something right in front of me.
