The EPO is pleased to inform users of new online filing (CMS) that version 1.11 is now available.
No installation is required. The new version will be automatically available the first time you log on after the rollout on 1 July 2015.
In version 1.11, you will be able to use all existing options:
Version 1.11 now supports the following browsers:
You can now upload application documents in XML format in Forms 1001 and PCT/RO/101.
You can now select Automatic debit as the mode of payment for Form PCT/RO/101.
You can now import Form 1038 in the same way as you import other data.
When filing subsequent documents for an application, a link is now created to the related application in the History screen.
You can now select multiple files for batch retrieval and export.
Uploaded documents are checked to detect if they are English, French or German. You can now change the language automatically detected if it is incorrect.
You can now edit the document type if it is incorrect.
In previous versions, uploaded documents were checked and rejected if the file name included special characters (e.g. accented characters). These characters are now permitted, but the system assigns a new file name which is indicative of the document contents. Both names are visible in the document overview.
You can now customise the My applications, My demo applications, My contacts and My templates views by selecting the fields you want to show. There is one default field and five or six optional fields to choose from, depending on the view. You can also change the column sequence by dragging and dropping the relevant column header.
There have been reports of glitches when importing address books, e.g. failure to transfer the country of nationality/residence. This issue has been resolved.
You can now use shortcuts to access tasks on the toolbar in views such as My applications. Toolbar shortcuts are key combinations comprising ALT and a number key. You can display all shortcuts by pressing the H key. Pressing a shortcut:
