This is work builds on my 1982 study on selection-positioning tasks (see links to paper and video in references below), and was done at by Gord Kurtenbach and my self prior to 1990, as part of the research of the Input Research Group (IRG) of the University of Toronto.

GEDIT is an exploration of how to use a single-stroke shorthand marking technique to select and interact with graphical objects. It makes use of radial menus, and constituted some of our early work in what came to be known as a "marking menus." This clip does not demonstrate everything in the referenced paper, but gives the flavour of some of the relevant issues.
