Summary

This invention idea provides a method to change the dot‐size when we draw lines or dots on tablet devices dynamically.

Background

Currently, when we use drawing software on tablet device to draw the line (or a dot), the line width is fixed. Users need to 1) setup dot‐size, 2) draw the line (or a dot). And the line‐width (or dot‐size) cannot be change within one drawing.

Prior Art/Solutions

Repeat the steps of “setup line‐width (dot‐size)” and “drawing”.

Description

Current problems:
Fig. 1‐4 shows how Adobe® Ideas works on setting line (or a dot) size at first, and then draw the line (dot) on canvas.
Fig. 1 shows user need to set parameter size as 23.0 at first, and then he/she can draw the line with the size of 23.0 (Fig. 2). If the user wants to draw a wider line, say 43.0. The user must set the parameter size to 43.0 then draw the line.

Fig. 5 shows that user cannot draw a line like this within one drawing, because the dot size is fixed during one drawing in current available solution.
