For BOXI Webi R2

Can the size of the “data markers” be varied within a chart?  Size of the frame or font size will not produce different data point markers.  This causes points to blend together.  

Please forward any advice on how to modify the point sizing.

    To the best of my knowledge they cannot be varied.  I don't think they're created from replaceable image files - I believe the size and shape is hardcoded into the executable files.

    Is it possible to (super impose,underlay or layer) one type of chart over another say a "trend line chart" over a "bar chart?" With say the trend line chart over the (transparent background) over the bar chart. You can do this in Crystal Reports I just cannot seem to tell if it can be done in BOXI Charting?
