Converting "tracked changes" amendments to regular amendment formatting

ClaimMaster allows you to convert amendments in claims (i.e., deletions/additions) made with “Track Changes” into the standard USPTO/EPO formatting (i.e., underline, strike-through). The conversion process accounts for status indicators and the USPTO rules, such as using double brackets for indicating deletions having less than 5 characters.
