Minimizing Hand Movement

Introduction to minimizing hand movement.

Sometimes users must move their hand because it blocks part of the screen. To minimize these occurrences, reduce the number of interaction steps needed for common operations. Use no more than seven commands on a menu and two levels of submenus.


user interface (UI) for commands and object editing, such as shortcut menus, should appear close to the object or pen tip.
