Data: Defines the color for the data points, symbols, lines etc.

Fill: Defines the color for filled areas and filled histograms.

Frame: Defines the color for the frame of bars.

Stick: Defines the color for sticks.

Linewidth: Defines the width of lines.

Line Pattern: Defines the dash pattern for the line style. 16 pattern are available.

Patternwidth: Allows to stretch the dash patterns.

Symbol: Defines the symbol which will be used for symbol style. 16 symbols are available.

Symbolsize: Defines the symbol size.

Use fill color for symbols: If checked symbols (0-6) will be filled with the fill color instead of the background color.

Sticksize: Defines the size (= length) for the sticks in the stick style.

Sticksize is absolute: If checked the length of sticks is defined in the coordinate system of the plot. Together with the dynamic size field this allows very flexible stick length and symbol size.

Dynamic Size: Allows to enter an expression which defines the size of symbols or the length of sticks. The following special variables are available:

xx value
yy value
exx error value
eyx error value
bnbuffer number
npnumber of buffers
npnumber of datapoints
dpthe current datapoint

Apply Default Style: When clicked the default data style will be applied.

Apply changes to selected buffers: If checked changes will provided to all selected buffers and not only to the current working buffer (the buffer with the arrow in the first column of the Data Inspector).

Apply changes to all buffers: If checked changes will provided to every data buffer and not only to the current working buffer (the buffer with the arrow in the first column of the Data Inspector).

Automatically apply different styles: This is a comfortable way to assign different styles automatically to all buffers, available for symbols, dash pattern and colors.
