I've tried using smaller markers, adding jitter, and using open
circle markers but it seems that having markers have some
transparency would be better."
The best solution to the problem that I know of is to use hollow
(e.g. Oh) and thin-line (e.g. +) markers. But if you have several
overlapping plots there is an inevitable problem of overcrowding.
Hollow and thin-line markers should be black. One way to obtain
that is to use the lean1 or lean2 scheme. Find the schemes by:
findit lean scheme
Hope this helps.
