Comprehensive proofreading reports

ClaimMaster provides pre-configured, one-click "comprehensive" reports for claims, Office Action responses, and patent applications. These reports provide the following in-depth proofreading checks:

    • Comprehensive claims/Office Action response report - identifies all of the potential issues with the claims in the document. Specific checks include claim numbering, amendments and status identifier errors, missing or ambiguous antecedents, and stylistically problematic or limiting terms in claims.
    • Comprehensive patent application report - identifies all of the potential issues with the claims and the specification. Specific checks include claim numbering, amendments and status identifier errors, missing or ambiguous antecedents, claim terms missing support in the specification, inconsistently used or numbered parts, acronym issues, and stylistically problematic or limiting terms in claims and specification. In addition, depending on whether you select the "with figures" or "without figures" option, the software will may also checks figures corresponding to the application for any part numbering inconsistencies.
