First of all, I have watched this tool improve over the years and am truly glad to have it.

My only complaint is that the image size has decreased. I perform quite a bit of design patent searching and large images are key to finding relevant references.

I would appreciate an option to increase image size and to hide Abstract/Claims/etc.

Thank you for all your work.

Hi Justin,

Your wish is my command!  We did try a version that only have images, like those in Google Images and Flickr.  Would you like that kind of user interface?

Thanks

Kenneth

Hi Kenneth,

Haha, thanks. I don't think I have that power anywhere else . . .

I think an image-only interface could be very useful. Perhaps this is already what you are thinking, but I suggest that it include all the images from every application, as opposed to each image being only the cover image.

For mechanical and design searching this could be a huge time saver. It seems that other patent search engines, e.g., Google Patent, have moved away from an interface with large images, and I think that has been a loss.

As always, thank you for your help. The offer of dinner remains open for any time you are in the Tampa Bay area.

Hi Justin,

I have added an option to show larger images in the newest version, 7.3.  It can be enabled by Show->Large Images.  Please give it a try.

Thanks

Kenneth
