Parameter: Std. deviation type

Full name: Graph type code for plotting standard deviations
Parameter type: graph type (Adaptive, Bar, Dot, Symbol)
Initial value: Adaptive

Affects: all averaged graphs

This parameter determines how the standard deviations will be drawn on graphs of averaged data. If Bar is chosen, the values are shown as vertical bars, centered at the mean, and extending up and down by one standard deviation. If Dot is chosen, the values are shown as single dots above and below the mean. If Symbol is chosen, the values are shown as diamond symbols, whose size can be changed by the "Diamond symbol size" parameter.

If Adaptive is chosen, the type is automatically picked as one of the other three choices, based on context. If there are less than 100 bins, symbols will be used. Otherwise, dots are drawn.

For dot and symbol graphs, the deviation points will be connected by line segments if the "Interpolation" option is enabled. For symbol graphs, you can replace the diamond symbol with a character label, by setting the "Graph tag symbol" parameter.
