comment Best plotting symbols for scientific plots with multiple datasets
@MarcvanDongen I have looked into Tufte's book but unfortunately it does not cover the topic in the question.

This effect will be the stronger, the more acute are the spikes.

And the ends of the spikes are (in some sense) "cut off" when we perceive the spiky shape so we always see the spiky shape as being smaller than it really is. It is as when we see on a hedgehog or on dandelion (from a short distance).

Good idea with expanding the objects! The original question of course has many dimensions even when we consider such a limited set of shapes. I'm still not sure that all the shapes on your final image look equal in size (especially the star as compared to the disk) but already upvoted your answer. I have a feeling that when we look at a spiky shape, we do not "count" the ends of the spikes because we instinctively feel that we cannot see where they ends are placed exactly.

comment How flatten transparency without rasterization?
@stephencosh Good idea! It is necessary to save a .cdr file in a format of older version of CorelDraw for opening it in Illustrator CS6. I am not sure which highest supported version though.

@Ryan I have not tried to open CDR in Illustrator but saving it from CorelDraw to CDR does not allow to flatten transparency.
