Abstract

A common user requirement in graphics is the ability to create and manipulate constructs or sub-pictures. A construct is simply one or more graphic elements which the user would like to address as one item. Constructs are defined or built up from basic graphic elements and, in the general case, can include other constructs as constituent components.
