Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

The icon used to represent the Menu Tree function is shown below:
The icon is selectable by mouse or cursor to invoke the Menu Tree function.
The Menu Tree is displayed in a window. When the Menu Tree Window is
minimized, the Menu Tree icon is displayed in the icon "parking lot." The icon
displays a reduced image of the content of the Menu Tree Window, together with
an indication of which are the currently open windows in the menu hierarchy.
The benefit to the user is a visual representation of the function in a manner
similar to how the function is displayed in a window and a mouse interaction style
which is useful for visual cues to the user about the existence of the function.
