When asked to draw with pen on paper, people exhibit surprising regularity
in the apparently free choices they make to execute primitive strokes.
Some patterns can be explained in terms of the mechanics of holding the
writing instrument; others stem from economy of motion; yet others signify
preferred ways of achieving precision when anchoring lines. This paper
describes a series of experiments designed to test the extent to which
the effects carry over to drawing with mouse and drafting program. It
concludes that some habits transfer, albeit in weaker form, despite the
fact that mechanical constraints are radically different.
