Abstract : Although many interactive tools allows manipulating effectively objects individually by applying principles such as direct manipulation, interaction with multiple objects have been little studied so far. Our thesis is that it is important to design interactions for the synchronous operation of multiple objects that are efficient, while fostering exploratory design. From contextual inquiries, we describe an analysis of needs which established a set of requirements for interactions on sets. We present four interactive tools to illustrate concepts of interaction with structures: links delegation, which are based on the delegation mechanism in prototype languages, allowing to establish dependencies between objects (and create clones) and extend the scope of interactions by propagating them; ManySpector, a new type of property inspector that reveals an implicit structuring of a scene and allows for building, with instrumental interactions, graphical query and selection; IHR, a tool that can automatically create a hierarchy of delegated properties; and Histoglass a movable lens that allows to locally manipulate the properties and past user actions. We also present the results of evaluations conducted with users in order to measure interest in the concepts provided by the tools developed. All of this work has led us to the draft of a new interaction paradigm, "the structural interaction", which extends the paradigms of direct manipulation and instrumental interaction.
