summary A method for inferring constraints that are desirable for a given (rough) drawing and then modifying the drawing to satisfy the constraints wherever possible, is described. The method has been implemented as part of an online graphics editor running under the UNIX operating system and it has undergone modifications in response to user input. Although the framework discussed is general, the current implementation is polygon-oriented. The relations examined are: approximate equality of the slope or length of sides, collinearity of sides, and vertical and horizontal alignment of points
