Path-Angle Generation and Function Generation synthesis problems are restated as Plane-Position (or Motion Generation) problems, enabling the use of the classical Burmester technique and recent extensions that permit the avoidance of Branch, Grashof, and Order defects. An example of the solution of a Path-Angle Generation problem is given.
