Summary: Zone and Polygon Menus: Using Relative Position to
Increase the Breadth of Multi-Stroke Marking Menus

ABSTRACT
We present Zone and Polygon menus, two new variants of
multi-stroke marking menus that consider both the relative
position and orientation of strokes. Our menus are designed
to increase menu breadth over the 8 item limit of status quo
orientation-based marking menus. An experiment shows
that Zone and Polygon menus can successfully increase
breadth by a factor of 2 or more over orientation-based
marking menus, while maintaining high selection speed and
accuracy. We also discuss hybrid techniques that may fur-
ther increase menu breadth and performance. Our tech-
niques offer UI designers new options for balancing menu
breadth and depth against selection speed and accuracy.
