Abstract

We give an overview of a drawing approach that combines the concepts constraint satisfaction, attribute evaluation and transformation. The approach is tailored to an editor for visual languages, which supports structured editing as well as free-hand editing. In this paper, we focus on the visual specification of such a layout algorithm. As a running example, deterministic finite automata are used.
