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.

Automatic Column Tab Rack Update
Tab stop Information associated with deleted, moved, copied or inserted
columns is used to automatically update format control information for affected
Defining columnar width with tab stops during input keying of a column or
table is a required operation. This is so whether done automatically by the
system, or done upon keying by the operator. Once defined and if stored, this
information is readily available for use with later column functions, such as
column delete, move, copy, and insert. A common practice is to store format
information including columnar widths for a table along with the table. This
format information is used by the system to cause a setting of column tabs in a
tab rack to control printout or display of the table.
Avoidance of the heretofore tedious and time consuming practice of rekeying
and updating table format information upon performing a column function is
accomplished by causing the system, upon keying a column function, to scan the
stored column width information for the affected column and update the format
information for the affected table(s). For example, for deletion or insertion of a
column, only an updating of the format information is required for the affected
table. A column copy operation requires creation of format information for a table
made up of the copied column. For a column move operation, both the "from"
and "to" table format information must be updated. System additions in t...
