(EN) PRESENTING DYNAMIC GRIDS

Abstract
(EN)
Grids are commonly used to provide an environment for users to orient objects within a drawing program. The properties of a grid are usually defined and set at the time the grid is created and do not change. An effective way to provide a useful grid that can adapt to objects a user has drawn is provided herein by presenting a dynamic grid on a display. The dynamic grid may adjust grid properties, such as the position of the origin, the angle of the grid, the size of gridline spacing, the coordinate mode, etc. The new grid properties are adjusted to accommodate what the user may draw next, based upon what the user previously drew.

L'invention concerne des grilles qui sont utilisées généralement pour fournir un environnement à des utilisateurs afin qu'ils orientent des objets dans un programme de dessin. Les propriétés d'une grille sont habituellement définies et établies lorsque la grille est créée, et ne changent pas. Une manière efficace de fournir une grille utile qui peut s'adapter aux objets qu'un utilisateur a dessinés est fournie dans l'invention, en présentant une grille dynamique sur un affichage. La grille dynamique peut ajuster des propriétés de grille, telles que la position de l'origine, l'angle de la grille, la taille de l'espacement du quadrillage, le mode de coordonnées, etc. Les nouvelles propriétés de grille sont ajustées pour recevoir ce que l'utilisateur peut dessiner ensuite, sur la base de ce que l'utilisateur a dessiné précédemment.
