Espacenet 1.11.1 release notes – 18 May 2020

Copying My patents list from classic Espacenet

You can now copy your My patents list from classic Espacenet to new Espacenet. In new Espacenet, simply select the double-arrow symbol in My Espacenet -> My settings -> Saved lists -> My patents to see the items in your My patents list in classic Espacenet. When you select Copy all to My patents, the tool will tick each copied item and change its background colour from grey to blue. Any item that is not copied will be displayed with a cross and a red background. If that happens, we recommend that you repeat the above procedure after a few days. If you update your My patents list in classic Espacenet, you can again repeat the above procedure to copy any additional patents in classic to new Espacenet. The grey circle beside the double-arrow symbol indicates the number of items in classic Espacenet that have not yet been copied to My patents in new Espacenet.

This feature will work if you are using both versions in the same browser on the same computer.

Please remember the general principle that adding another publication of a family that is already in My patents will not increase the number of families listed. However, the star icon is filled in for both documents because both are in My patents. The same principle applies when copying patents from classic Espacenet.

Result list

Where only one document is found, you will now see the document pane only. Previously there were circumstances where this did not work. If, however, you want to see the result-list entry of that one document, simply open it from the breadcrumb trail.

Minor bug fixes and improvements not visible to the user are not described here.

See this forum entry for a list of known issues and workarounds.
