Compared to other more complex search tools, IP.com has a very thin set of user preferences. In fact there is no dedicated “Preferences” screen at all. There are, however, user-definable display options available on the search form screen.
Within the Display Options section, users have the option to have results displayed with either an abbreviated abstract or a Keyword in Context view (KWIC) containing the first keyword match within the document. Highlighting of matched search terms may also be toggled on and off with a checkbox located here.
