Interactive Beautification

Validation level: 5. CHI, UIST, CSCW and TOCHI paper publication

Interactive Beautification is a object transformation technique. After an input, it beautifies your strokes according to geometric constraints. These are:

  • Connection
  • Parallelism
  • Perpendicularity
  • Alignment
  • Congruence
  • Symmetry
  • Interval

When there is an ambiguity in the created stroke, you can select from the derived candidates. With the technique, you can quickly create geometric diagrams.
