Claim of US Patent No. 10,338,807

1. A non-transitory computer-readable medium having contents configured to cause a computing system to:receive information about a spatial movement by a user;
on the basis of the received information, predict future spatial movement by the user;
generate an ink stroke that reflects both the spatial movement described by the received information and at least a portion of the predicted future spatial movement;
enforce against the generated ink stroke a limit that has the effect of controlling the area of a portion of the ink stroke corresponding to the at least a portion of the predicted future spatial movement; and
cause the generated ink stroke, subject to the enforcement of the limit, to be displayed,
wherein an extent of the predicted future spatial movement that is determined by enforcement of the limit is a number of contact points of the predicted future spatial movement that are reflected in the generated ink stroke,
wherein the limit that is enforced against the generated ink stroke determines the extent of the predicted future spatial movement to be reflected in the generated ink stroke in a way that inversely relates the extent of the predicted future spatial movement that is reflected in the generated ink stroke to a thickness of the generated ink stroke.
