  • Patent number: 12026365
    Abstract: Constrained stroke editing techniques for digital content are described. In these examples, a stroke constraint system is employed as part of a digital content creation system to manage input, editing, and erasure (i.e., removal) of strokes via a user interface as part of editing digital content. To do so, locations and attributes of a displayed stroke are used to constrain location and/or attributes of an input stroke.

  • Patent number: 12026292
    Abstract: A remote control-based method for protecting information on a device screen is provided. A controlling terminal controls a controlled terminal through a remote control system, and the remote control-based method specifically includes the following steps: S1: superimposing a floating layer on a content page of a screen of the controlled terminal; S2: adjusting transparency of the floating layer to allow the content page on the screen of the controlled terminal to be invisible; S3: taking a screenshot of the controlled terminal; and S4: adjusting brightness of the screenshot to restore the content page to be normally visible and displayed at the controlling terminal. The remote control-based method can prevent screen information on a remote device from being disclosed, provide a more secure and private environment for a remote control process, and protect the security of information.

  • Patent number: 12019806
    Abstract: Method for generating haptic and audio feedback responses starts with processor causing communication interface for communication session to be displayed on first user interface and on a second user interface. Processor detects first touch input on first user interface and second touch input on second user interface. Processor monitors location of the first touch input on the first user interface and location of the second touch input on the second user interface. Processor determines distance between location of first touch input on first user interface and location on first user interface corresponding to location of second touch input on second user interface. In response to determining that the distance is below predetermined threshold, processor causes first user interface and second user interface to generate an initial haptic feedback response and an initial audio feedback response. Other embodiments are described herein.
