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.

Footnote and Reference Line Placement
Aesthetics and readability are improved by forcing a footnote referenceline
and the corresponding footnote to a following page when the entire footnote will
not fit on the same page with the reference line.
In instances where a specified number of lines at the bottom of a page are
allocatable to footnotes, and the number of footnote lines exceeds the specified
number of lines, two options are available. One is to split the footnote and place
portions on different pages; however, this is disconcerting to a reader. A better
solution is to terminate the body text on the page with the line before the line
containing a reference to a long footnote, and place the reference line and the
footnote on a following page.
