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.

Designated Text Position Propagation
The problem solved by this invention is relocating the coordinates of the
cursor or other designated insignia after a reformatting operation in a word
The cursor coordinates are carried along with each component operation and
are transformed in a step-wise manner so that the cursor winds up on the same
letter as it occupied previous to the reformatting operation.
When a screen is displayed, the cursor is set to a position matching the
current position within the file. When a screen is returned, the current position
within the file is set from the cursor position. The display position gives the upper
left corner of the text to be displayed.
The following rules are followed in relating the position of the cursor and
display position. 1. The current position and display position are synchronized
after every command. This is true regardless of how the commands were
entered. 2. If the cursor was outside of text, and the command does not change
the current position, then the cursor is placed on the command line. 3. Even if
the current position is not changed, the cursor may be moved to a different
position if several screen positions represent a single point in the document. 4. If
the command moves the current position, then the display position is adjusted so
that the current position is shown on the screen. The cursor is placed on the
current position. (Examples of commands which change the current position are:
