Release History for the Last 18 Months

New and Fixed in Version 5.3.1 (2019-11-14)

  • This release is code-signed with a new certificate which should take care of the installation issues many companies are experiencing. Please let us know if you still have problems installing.

Patent Databases

  • Improved display of legal status and expiry dates from PatBase: the Latest Legal Status and Latest Legal Status Table columns now show the correct latest event for all publications included in your export. The Family Status Expiry column includes the calculated expiry date when present in the legal status data, and the Latest Expiry Date is available as a column.
  • Added support for Ultimate Parent and Optimized Assignee in Derwent Innovation.
  • Fixed a bug with loading patent family members from Orbit.com when doing number searches. This primarily affected WO applications.

Non-Patent Literature

  • SciFinder: Several fixes for fields on SciFinder. Also fixed an issue which could prevent the software from reading certain transcripts from SciFinder-n.
  • PubMed: Funding support (grant) information is displayed in a new Grants column.

Announcing Version 5.3 (2019-09-25)

NOTE: If you experience a problem installing the software, we suggest uninstalling earlier versions and then re-installing. (This release uses an updated code signing certificate, which may affect the ability of non-Administrator users to install this update).

  • During update of patent charts, creates a new column "New Publications" which reports any new family members. Added a new rule in Reference Rows which will select truly new publications in a set of records (not showing any publications that were already present in another record).
  • Added a new rule in Reference Rows which will select truly new publications in a set of records (not showing any publications that were already present in another record).
  • Added a new rule in Reference Rows for the Row Status column which helps you understand when a new record represents a truly new family in your report, or when simply updating an existing family.

New and Fixed in Version 5.2.3 (2019-08-30)

NOTE: If you experience a problem installing the software, we suggest uninstalling earlier versions and then re-installing. (This release uses an updated code signing certificate, which may affect the ability of non-Administrator users to install this update).

  • During update of patent charts, creates a new column "New Publications" which reports any new family members. This is a first release of this capability, and any bug reports or feedback would be appreciated.
  • Fixed a crash after adding a column and then choosing Undo.

Fixed in Version 5.2.2 (2019-06-19)

  • Fixed a problem with loading images from STNext RTF transcripts.
  • Fixed a bug in the Summary Records export when an empty cell follows a subtable.

New and Fixed in Version 5.2.1 (2019-05-15)

We usually try to avoid doing releases back to back, but unfortunately last week two issues came up which require an immediate fix.

  • Fixed a problem with generating full text links for 2019 WO publications from PatBase.
  • Structure images will be changing on STNext soon, and this change will affect the format of the RTF exports. You will need to install this version to import structure images from CAplus, REGISTRY, and possibly other files when this change goes live.

Announcing Version 5.2 (2019-04-30)

  • Fixed an issue which would cause the software to lock up while reading some transcripts from STNext.
  • Added an option to the Word - Summary Records export to skip empty fields. This can be used, for example, when the chart has a mix of patent and non-patent rows.
  • Added an option panel for Hit Structures. The first option is whether to include the chemical name in the substance description.

Fixed in Version 5.1.1 (2019-03-07)

  • Fixed a problem which could cause a crash when exporting records from Orbit.com to Word or Excel.

Announcing Version 5.1 (2019-01-15)

  • Fixed a problem with dragging items on the Sort panel and View Columns panel which caused crashes and in some cases corrupted chart files.

Patent Databases

  • Added a new Legal Status Link column and a Very Large Family ID column on PatBase. Added an Extended Patent Family column which contains publication, application, and dead/alive in a single column.
  • Added support for the MCLM field (as an alternative to CLM) in EPFULL on Orbit.

Literature

  • Changed formatting of section headings in Medline abstracts to improve extraction for analytics, on PubMed and ProQuest Dialog.
  • Added support for PIRA, TEMA, NTIS, and 1MOBILITY on STN.
  • Added support for ToxFile on ProQuest Dialog.

Reference Rows

  • Fixed a problem in Excel exports which could cause an extra blank cell in some rows, shifting the remaining cells to the right.

Fixed in Version 5.0.1 (2018-09-03)

  • Updated the definition for Clarivate Analytics Integrity to handle a recent change in the export format. Also captures the basic publication identified in the Integrity export.

Announcing Version 5.0 (2018-07-19)

We are proud to announce the release of BizInt Smart Charts for Patents version 5.0.

  • Version 5.0 supports hit structures from classic STN, New STN, and STNext. Two types of report are available in the Summary Records export - a display of hit structures with each CAplus reference, and an Index of Hit Structures with links to the CAplus references.
  • If you are using STNext, we strongly recommend that you start a new transcript before your final display command. Transcripts that span a long search session can sometimes cause the software to get lost when looking for records.
  • Supports image columns in the Summary Records export.
  • Adds the ability to generate hyperlinks in exports from DOIs and from NCT numbers.

Database Highlights

  • Support for the Dead/Alive flag in PatBase, as well as improved claims display.
  • Support for new fields in Derwent Innovation including family status and calculated expiry dates.
  • Added support for the FULLPAT publication-level database on Orbit.com. Did you know that when your results include EP publications, the Status Details column shows the status in each designated state?
  • Several new fields are available from GenomeQuest including the Unique Family Sequence ID, Normalized Patent Assignee, and Legal Status - National Phase.
  • Added support for several full text files on STN: AUPATFULL; CANPATFUL; CNFULL, FRFULL, GBFULL, and PATDPAFULL.
  • Added new fields for Author Keywords (PubMed as well as Medline and Embase on PQD), Corresponding Author (Medline, Embase, and Biosis on PQD), and Prepublication (PubMed).

Fixed in Version 4.8.2 (2018-07-10)

  • Supported a change in the internal label in the Clarivate Analytics Integrity export files which caused an error when trying to import Integrity exports. Clarivate restored the original file format on 12 July, so this release is no longer required to create reports from Integrity.

New and Fixed in Version 4.8.1 (2018-06-17)

Hit Structures

  • Fixed an issue which caused some structure images to not load from STNext. Also changed the hit structure loading to be more tolerant of formatting errors in the HITSTR transcript.
  • Fixed an issue with duplicate hit structures in Reference Rows exports.

Patent Databases

  • Adds support for the Title Terms field from Derwent Innovation.
  • Adds support for the Legal Status - National Phase field from GenomeQuest.
