Title: A Separated Focus+Context Screens System for Sketching
Author(s): Flider, Mark J.
Contributor(s): Bailey, Brian P.
Subject(s): Human-computer interaction
Abstract: Designers need a larger electronic workspace effective for sketching. To provide such a workspace, we have developed a focus+context screens system which tethers a smaller 'focus' screen to a larger 'context' screen. For increased performance and a more naturalistic interaction, we also split the input into sketching with the dominant hand and control with the non-dominant hand. We compare the differences between design work using current systems and our system. Our results and recommendations should help systems designers develop more effective separated focus+context screens systems.
