I have gone through a few tutorials on using ggpubr and I seem to be getting the hang of it. Instead of the ggline() plot, however, I want a dot and error bars plot only (i.e., what we get with ggline, but without the line). I usually make this graph using geom_point() + geom_bar() in ggplot but since ggpubr has its own plot functions I’m not sure how to use the stat_compare_means() and stat_pvalue_manual() to add the significance indicators to the type of plot I want.

Below is the code I’m using, but I’d like to make it so that I get a picture similar to the one I’ve uploaded here: desired graph type

```
# Line plot of mean +/-se
ggline(ToothGrowth, x = "dose", y = "len", add = "mean_se")+
stat_compare_means() + # Global p-value
stat_compare_means(ref.group = "0.5", label = "p.signif",
label.y = c(22, 29))
```

For interested novices like me, here are two good pages on ggpubr:

I have tried using ggdotplot but that’s more of a scatter plot instead of just giving one point for the mean for each condition.
