Hi,
I'm using a similar idea to change colors, but I want everything to be plotted as a scatter plot of 'o' markers.
My issue is, when I implement this in a for loop as follows:

color = {'k','b','r','g','y','c',[.5 .6 .7],[.8 .2 .6]}

for i = 1:8
plot(x{:,i},y{:,i},'Color',color{i},'Marker','o')
end

The plot returned consists of lines with the 'o' marker on top. I really only want the markers, how do I remove the line?
