Title: FREEHAND TABLE MANIPULATION
Abstract:
Recognition of freehand input enables gestures and objects to be recognized as tables and actions taken in relation to tables. For example, drawing a rectangle intersected by horizontal and vertical lines will create a table object that functions as a table within a productivity application, but may inherit visual cues from the strokes used to draw it. Users are enabled to move, add to, remove from, reorganize, delete, and perform value- based calculations on and in the table via freeform input.
