Workbench / Correspondence / PDF trending idea

When downloading correspondence from Private PAIR the combined PDF file contains bookmarks in the format

"customerno applicationnumber date typeofdocument."

 

The equivalent bookmarks in PatentCenter only include date and type of document. That is unfortunate. The PAIR format allows us to parse a larger PDF file and separate it out into different files following our firm's naming convention. Adding the application... more »

Patent Attorney

Downsized View a bit "glitchy" - When I minimize my browser window to half screen, or anything less than full screen, the Application view is quirky and not fully functional. The left navigation menu with "Application Data", "Documents & Transactions," etc. disappears and is no longer accessible. At the bottom, left-right scroll is not available to scroll the entire window. And within the Application Data screen, when... more »

Larger character limit than 50 characters for fillable fields

When filling in any fillable fields in Patent Center's web-based forms, there is a 50 character limit. Some of the companies for which I file applications have company name lengths longer than 50 characters, so I cannot use many of the web fillable forms (ADS, Issue Fee payment forms, etc.) any time I would have to type the company name into these online forms, for example as the Applicant name, or assignee name. Instead,... more »

Inventor names improperly jammed together

The "Application Data" tab in Patentcenter lists the inventor names, each on a separate line. This tab also has a "print" icon that can be used to generate a PDF file with the information from the Application Data tab. The PDF file is named "Bibliographic Data - Application - Patent Center - USPTO". The bug is that when Patentcenter generates the PDF file, it runs two of the inventor names together in the same line. So... more »

Search and download large sets of data

Hi,

I see that there are some changes to Patent Center from the earlier beta version. In the earlier version, there was an option to search applications through customer number, which is not available currently. Even, the customer number field is no longer available at the application data page. I have following recommendations for your consideration:

1. The 'Search by customer number' option should be made available... more »

DOCX Patent Application gets loaded as a reference

One of our listserv members reports: The patent application that I just e-filed in DOCX form gets loaded into the "non-patent literature" section of "display references". The impression that one gets is that the Examiner could cite our own patent application against us to prove that our patent application lacks novelty. See article. This is EBC ticket number 1-718687424.

This is Patentcenter trouble ticket CP43 in the... more »

Downloading IFW is non-intuitive

One of our listserv members reports: Downloading IFW is non-intuitive. A user downloads the IFW in PC by clicking on the box showing the number of documents selected and then selects the type of download. After doing so, however, nothing happens – there is no pop-up message that informs the user a download is in progress or has been initiated, and the download is not indicated by any web browser icon/message. The downloaded... more »

Ordering cert copies - Certified Copy Center/Patent Center trending idea

When ordering a certified copy of an unpublished document through Certified Copy Center, we must upload Proof of Entitlement. When ordering by use of dsd@uspto.gov, we are not required to provide Proof of Entitlement. Is there a way to streamline the Certified Copy Center method so we do not have to upload Proof of Entitlement for every order? We are logged into myuspto every time, either through a registered practitioner... more »

No way to delete uploaded ADS trending idea

One of our listserv members reports, A Filer uses "Uploaded ADS" and uploads the ADS and uploads all of the other documents for a new patent application. Filer then discovers there is a mistake in the ADS. Filer goes back to the front of the filing screens. Filer clicks to delete the ADS. Filer gets a warning: Removing this application data sheet will result in all previously entered bibliographic data being removed.... more »

Signature block for 85B form overly restrictive

One of our listserv members reports, the signature block for the 85B form wrongly tells the filer that the filer must provide the filer's name between the virgules of the S-signature.

37 CFR § 1.4(d)(2)(i) says exactly what a virgule signature (the USPTO calls it an "S-signature") is supposed to look like. The Rule says that what the signer must type between the two virgules (the two "slashes") is at least one letter... more »

View Receipt History improperly tied to IFW trending idea

One of our listserv members reports, the View Receipt History function of Patententer, which is clearly intended to try to replicate the "last 40 ack receipts" function of EFS-Web, fails at this because it has a guaranteed latency that is tied to the IFW latency.

The Patentcenter developers have said from the beginning that one design requirement for Patentcenter is to replicate each feature of EFS-Web (and each feature... more »

Inconsistent signed-in status in different windows

One of our listserv members reports, it is commonplace for Patentcenter to be "signed in" in one browser window and yet another browser window showing a Patentcenter page will be "signed out." It is weird to have Patentcenter be so inconsistent about the "signed-in" status across two or more open browser windows in the exact same browser.

Because the problem is intermittent, one assumes that this is not merely some coding... more »
