Clicking on the Claims & Descriptions link opens the full text page. On the left is the complete list of family members. To view the electronic full text, the user must choose one of three separate links to electronic full-text records: by clicking these, users can view either the title/abstract, the claims, or the description of one document at a time. A "Non Latin Text" link is also available to view the text of documents containing searchable non-Latin text.
The full text is displayed in the center, typically with a Machine Translation option. A "Chemicalize" option is also available for documents containing chemical terms within the text (see the description of the new Chemicalize feature below). If keywords have been entered in the search form, keyword highlighting is used throughout the text. To the right of the electronic text, a “hit map” or keyword diagram shows the location of the keywords throughout the text section (for claims and description sections only). Within the diagram, keywords are represented by their highlighting color; a key to the highlighting scheme is shown at the top of the page. The diagram is useful for navigating large text sections: selecting a particular region of interest within it will cause the window to jump to that portion of the document, displaying the text of interest.
Chemicalize - The Chemicalize tool, added in July 2011, "identifies chemical names in the Full Text and converts them to chemical structures." When this option is selected, a separate window pops up from the website Chemicalize.org, which displays structure drawings of all chemical compounds identified in the text of the section (along with the number of occurrences of the chemical listed above the structure drawing). The text is displayed below the chart of chemical structure drawings, and users can select a structure to view the highlighted occurrences of where the chemical appears in the text.
Smart Claims - As of November 2010, the "Smart claims viewer" has been extended to include publications from all countries with Full-text available (except non-Latin full-text). The feature organizes patent claims into claim trees, which show the relationship between the dependent and independent claims in a document. It can be accessed whenever the user sees the hyperlinked word “smart” next to the claims section in the full text viewer.
The claims viewer will load in the full-text view secondary window. The list of all full-text documents in the family record will still appear in the menu on the far left, and the right-hand window will be divided into two columns: the left column shows the hyperlinked outline of the entire claim structure, and the right column will display the full-text claims (as they are selected from the hyperlinked outline).
Selecting a family member’s document number opens up a PDF version of the document in a page-by-page viewer in the main frame of the window.
