Executive Summary

Drawing diagrams is one of the most important activities during software development processes. A multitude of sketch-based diagram tools were developed to enhance sketching with digital features. However, these applications are not as flexible as paper and often obstruct spontaneous sketching. To overcome these drawbacks the authors suggest the usage of digital pens and paper in conjunction with sketch-based UML diagram tools. This paper deals with work in progress concerning the seamless integration of paper-based and digital UML-sketching. Amongst others, this includes special UML sketch books and paper palettes used in combination with tabletops.
