Glimpse: a Novel Input Model for Multi-level Devices (31 Oct 2005)
While working on this paper, the authors commonly scrolled to the end of this document in order to glance at the paperís references. Similarly, when editing code, a programmer often uses a scroll bar to take a quick look at the details of another method or the definition of a variable. Our technique would enable a user to scroll to and view another portion of a long document before returning to the exact location they were previously editing. While various applications employ a wide array of methods for jumping around within a document, we are not aware of any that provide the accuracy and ease of use of our technique. Users would be able to glimpse at other portions of a document before returning to their previous location using only the scroll bar, never needing to find or traverse to another tool.
