Hello, I am using scatter function to make markers, and I am confused about how the sizing works.  When I set the size of markers in plot() it behaves as expected, larger numbers makes larger markers.  However for scatter I set the size to maybe 5 and then increase it to 50, and even 500 and there seems to be a limit on the size of the marker in that the difference from 5 to 50 is large and from 50 to 500 its not much change. How does this work? Thanks.


axes.scatter(data,array, marker=’o’, c=’g’, linewidth=1, edgecolor=’k’, alpha=0.5, s=50)



also, lines seem to plot over markers regardless of the order of the call to plot() and scatter(). How can I force the markers to draw ontop of the lines so that I don’t see the line beneath it? I’m using WxAgg. Thanks.
