Nick is correct.

The -sy(x)- problem was fixed in version 2.1.3 of 30 April
2001.

However, it seems that the author never posted
the revised version to SSC...

Sorry, but within-key line styles have not been implemented.
-keyplot- is in essence a version 6 program. I
stopped adding features to it about 2 years ago.

Feel free to copy the program, say to -keyplot2-,
and to write your own extensions.
