I want to plot stars with dashed outline but when I try to use the scatter function to do it, it gives the error "There is no LineStyle property on the Scatter class."
scatter(hx1,hy1,210,'--kp')

In MATLAB, markers have only four properties:
  1. size
  2. shape
  3. color of the edge around the marker
  4. color of the marker face
Unfilled markers are markers with marker face color 'none'. Filled markers have marker face color that is not 'one'. Filled markers usually have the same edge color as face color, but it is possible to adjust that afterwards.
MATLAB markers do not have line style: when the edge color is not 'none' then the edge is always a solid line.
