Design of a Perceptual-Based Object Group Selection Technique Misc

Hoda Dehmeshki, Wolfgang Stuerzlinger


Selecting groups of objects is a common task in graphical user interfaces. Current selection techniques such as lasso and rectangle selection become time-consuming and error-prone in dense configurations or when the area covered by targets is large or hard to reach. This paper presents a new pen-based interaction technique that allows users to efficiently select perceptual groups formed by the Gestalt principle of good continuity.
