how to fill circle markers with crosses?

7 views (last 30 days)
Is there a way I can fill the circle markers with crosses instead of colours? just for the aesthetic purpose. Examples are in the attached pic below.
I guess one workaround is to plot crosses at the same data points, but that will mess up the legends and other things, is there a neater way of doing this?

I'm guessing it's a bit sloppy for your purposes, but one can overstrike plots with two markers:
rng(31)
x = rand(7,1);
y = rand(7,1);
figure
hold on
plot(x,y,'o','color','r')
plot(x,y,'+','color','r')
plot(y,x,'o','color','b')
plot(y,x,'x','color','b')

Sloppy why? Because the overstrikes are not snug inside their outer circles? That can be ameliorated by playing with the relative MarkerSizes.
rng(31)
x = rand(7,1);
y = rand(7,1);
figure
hold on
plot(x,y,'o','color','r','MarkerSize',14)
plot(x,y,'+','color','r','MarkerSize',13)
plot(y,x,'o','color','b','MarkerSize',14)
plot(y,x,'x','color','b','MarkerSize',13)

Thanks both! however this is still not the way I'd like it to be, as I don't feel like accomplishing this by adding more plots, but I guess there's no better ways at this stage, thanks for the ideas though, much appreciated!
