A figure electing device permits an operator to use a pointing device such as a mouse to elect a figure from among one or more figures located in the vicinity of a point that is indicated on a figure display image plane by the pointing device, so that the elected figure can be subjected to figure processing. The figure electing device computes the possibility of being elected for every figure by fuzzy inference based on fuzzy rules, and determines the figure designated by the pointing device based on the possibilities allocated to positions relative to the point designated by the pointing device.
