Situation in which the legend fails to include line markers

Postby andersony3k » Wed Feb 20, 2013 2:32 pm

For many years, I've complained to SPSS that if a line graph has both markers and error bars, the legend will not show the markers (it shows a useless representation of the error bars instead). This is especially problematic when the graph is black-and-white, and when each of the graph's multiple lines has the same line style: The absence of line markers in the legend makes the graph ambiguous: One can get line markers in the legend, or one can include error bars in the graph, but if one includes error bars then it is not possible to have the legend display line markers.

Here's a web page that shows an example graph along with the script that generated the graph:

Because it's difficult for average users like myself to contact IBM tech support, I'm hoping that someone with connections will inform IBM SPSS of this problem.
