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.

Preserving Defaults in Button Choices
By allowing a user to reselect original default values after a button selection
which displays pop-ups, original default values are maintained.
In many programs there exist button choice groups wherein each button
represents an option for a particular parameter. One, and only one, button is
highlighted to indicate the current definition of the choice with the initially
highlighted values being the default values. However, if other buttons in the
choice group have pop-ups associated with them, it is desirable that the user be
able to view the contents of these other pop-ups without losing the current,
possibly default, value.
This is accomplished by allowing the user to select another button in the
choice group which will both display the pop-up associated with that button and
deselect the original (default) button. However, if the user selects QUIT (or other
selected function) from the pop-up, the original (default) button is reselected.
Therefore, the current value or default value of a button is preserved unless
explicitly changed by the user.
