Some Design Refinements and Principles on the Appearance and Behavior of Marking Menus

AbstractThis paper describes some design refinements on marking menus and shows how these refinements embody interesting and relevant design principles for HCI. These refinements are based on the design principles of: (1) maintaining visual context, (2) hiding unnecessary information, and (3) supporting skill development by graphical feedback. The result is a new graphical representation and a more effective form of visual feedback and behavior for marking menus.
