I have a lot of data points that have been plotted in graphs. I need to make a table of those points with symbol as one of the columns. I need to have a red dot inscribed in a blue circle. This has to be in the column. "I also need a red dot inscribed in a blue circle which is inscribed in a triangle." How do I go about doing this?

  • @ Christian Hupfer I don't need to plot them. I have already plotted them and saved as .png I need to mention the symbols that I have used in the table for ease of understanding the graph. – BRMBU Jan 22 '17 at 15:11
  • Sorry, I misread your question. I think tikZ is what you need then. – user31729 Jan 22 '17 at 15:14

Something like this? Use \bluereddot[...] with a scaling factor or change the default factor 0.3 in the command definition.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tikz}

\newcommand{\bluereddot}[1][0.3]{%
  \begin{tikzpicture}[scale=#1]
    \draw[fill=red,red] (0,0) circle (0.15);
    \draw[blue] (0,0) circle (0.5);
  \end{tikzpicture}%
}


\begin{document}

\bluereddot[0.1]
\bluereddot
\bluereddot[0.5]

\bluereddot[2]

\end{document}

enter image description here

  • Yes this is what I wanted but how do I use this in a table? – BRMBU Jan 22 '17 at 16:02
  • @Bryan: The same way... just enter the command \bluereddot in the table cell you want to appear it... – user31729 Jan 22 '17 at 16:03
  • Could you please help out. The statement within quotes. – BRMBU Jan 23 '17 at 1:39
