Point Style

Selection prerequisite: One or more objects, at least one of which must be a point, an iterated image of a point, an angle marker, a dotted grid, or a discrete function plot or point locus

This Display menu command sets the point style of each selected object.

When all selected objects share a common point style, a checkmark appears in the submenu next to that style.

When you change the selected object’s point style, Sketchpad remembers your chosen style for future similar objects in the current sketch.

To change an object’s point style without changing the setting for future objects, hold down the Shift key while choosing the command. (You can also uncheck Update automatically when restyling existing objects in Text Preferences to preserve the default point style.)

The Point Style setting has special results for angle markers, for dotted grids, and for discrete loci and function plots.
