1. An electronic device, comprising:
one or more processors; and
memory storing one or more programs configured to be executed by the one or more processors, the one or more programs including instructions for:
presenting a computer-generated reality environment comprising a representation of a first real object and a displayed virtual object;
detecting, using one or more sensors, a movement of the first real object;
presenting a corresponding movement of the representation of the first real object from a first location to a second location in the computer-generated reality environment; and
in accordance with a determination that a distance criteria is satisfied and the virtual object does not correspond to a second real object detected using the one or more sensors, removing a portion of the displayed virtual object, wherein the distance criteria comprises a threshold distance between the second location and the virtual object.
