I imagine that treating separate graphs differently requires recourse
to the Graph Editor or -graph combine-.

Say I want to highlight only the intersection (price weight) and its correspondent (weight price) for the reader. I cannot quite figure out how to use -cond()- to do that.

>>> After reading -help graph matrix- and few web searches, I was unable to find an answer. I would like to highlight a specifc scatter (or more than one) in -graph matrix-. The option -text(#y #x "text")- does not appear to work. The option -msymbol()- applies symultaneously to all scatters. I presume I could go the longer route of -graph combine- but I would use it as a last option. Any suggestion?
