I see the dialog box in the latest snapshot. The "ps" setting doesn't
make it into the gnuplot commands, though, and I don't see any effect.
Ah, in my testing I changed the point-type as well as the point size,
and it works fine. But I now see that if you don't change the point
type, then the point-size selection doesn't get applied. (In the
background gretl must be thinking that "nothing has changed"). Should
be quite easily fixable.
Also, it would be nice if somehow the new box didn't need a new
"line"/row on its own. I also notice that the "data scale" field
the entire row width, although it's just a single number just as the
linewidth and point size values. Almost the same for the y-axis chooser,
doesn't need the full row width.
That sort of thing can be quite tricky to adjust, but I'll have a go.
