Dynamic approximation of complex graphical constraints by linear constraints
TLDR
We present a generic new technique for efficiently handling such kinds of constraints based on trust regions and linear arithmetic constraint solving and demonstrate that it is possible to (re-)solve systems of linear constraints that are dynamically approximating complex constraints such as non-overlap sufficiently quickly to support direct manipulation in interactive graphical applications.

Satisficing scrolls: a shortcut to satisfactory layout
TLDR
We present at a new approach to finding aesthetically pleasing page layouts with floating figures referenced within text where floats can have alternate sizes, may be optional, move from one side to the other and change their order. Expand

Towards Optimal Table Layout
TLDR
We present a new approach to table layout that extends the current standard by allowing the designer to specify arbitrary linear equality and inequality constraints over the column widths and row heights. Expand

Automatic float placement in multi-column documents
TLDR
Multi-column layout with horizontal scrolling has a number of advantages over the standard model (single column with vertical scrolling) for on-line document layout. Expand

Solving the simple continuous table layout problem
TLDR
We give a simple and efficient algorithm for solving a continuous relaxation of the layout problem in which each cell must be large enough to contain the area of its content. Expand
