Using USPTO Archives to Generate Office Action Responses

Using USPTO archives to generate office action responses is a simple process that allows you to create the best possible response to any type of office action request you receive from the USPTO. This article explains how to do it and includes tips for getting the most out of the process.


Using the PatentOptimizer Office Action Response Tool, you can easily retrieve relevant documents from the USPTO archives and quickly respond to office actions. This allows you to save time while drafting a strong office action response.

The Office Action Response Tool is part of the LexisNexis PatentOptimizer(r) ribbon. Each time you start a new document, the Office Action Response information window will appear. It includes information on the tool, as well as a list of citations and rejections. You can use the information to identify references and objections related to the office action.

The Office Action Response tab allows you to modify the quick shell response, and insert review drawings. You can also save the response. The template preview provides a preview of the response, and all suggested responses are included. You can customize your response by adding or deleting claims and sections, modifying the response language, and importing or exporting the response.

The Prior Art tab contains a list of citations and prior art references cited in the office action. This tab also includes bibliographic information, such as the Examiner Name, Application Number, and First Named Inventor. You can click a reference to retrieve a related PDF document.

The OA Browser tabs display a list of rejections, allowances, and other items related to the office action. This information can be viewed, emailed, or printed. You can also download the cited art.

You can save your response by clicking on the Save As Doc button. The saved response will appear under the OA Response on the LexisNexis PatentOptimizer ribbon.

You can also access a list of all rejected OAs through the OA Browser. Depending on the amount of citations and objections, preparing a shell response can take from 30 minutes to two hours. If you prefer, you can also download the cited art from the USPTO.

The USPTO has an unfathomable amount of patent data. The Office Action Research Dataset for Patents is derived from 4.4 million office actions. The initial release of the data is a three-file set. It can be downloaded directly from the USPTO’s OCE. The Dataset was created through a collaboration between the USPTO and the OCE.


Using USPTO archives to generate Office Action responses may seem a bit redundant, but if you’re drafting or reviewing patent applications you might find that generating a clean Office Action response with the help of software can save you time. Fortunately, there’s a great solution: ClaimMaster, a Windows-only program designed to automate your patent application drafting.

The software features a script-based engine and a long list of features. One of its most impressive abilities is its ability to detect and analyze errors in the specification. This helps patent attorneys check for problems and fix them.

Another useful feature is its ability to automatically compare claims to identify any differences. This will allow you to renumber claims and adjust dependent claims. It will also detect acronym issues and ambiguous claim language. You can use this feature to compare two or more independent claims or to check the support of a widget device in a patent specification.

The claim-comparison tool also has other features, such as the ability to compare a claim to other claims in a document. It can also generate a patent family tree and figure out how a claim is related to other claims in the document.

OA Browser – The OA Browser is a window that lets you browse a collection of rejections. You can also view a list of objections and allowances. You can also download and print files from the software.

The OA browser is also a great source of data, including file wrappers, maintenance fee status, cited art and applicant arguments. It works best with Internet Explorer 8.0 or earlier. You can also download and view PDFs of published patents. The OA Browser has a blue OA Biblio tab, which displays a table of objections and allowances.

The OA browser is a great tool for checking the status of a patent application and checking the accuracy of the citations. The software is also useful for identifying missing specification support and determining if a claim is invalid or void.

Finally, ClaimMaster can also download cited art from the USPTO and EPO. This includes a wide variety of information, such as bibliographic data from PEDS, USPTO filing histories and PDFs of published patents. The citations from these sources are cached, so you won’t have to worry about losing information.

Splitting a PDF file into two or more

Whether you need to split a PDF file into two or more, or you are looking to merge several documents, there are a few ways to get the job done. The first step is to choose the pages you would like to have. Typically, you can select the pages by holding the Command or Shift key. Then, click on the save button, which is typically located in the lower right corner. Once you save the file, you can rename it and choose a new location. The same process can be used to create multiple PDFs.

You can also split your PDF file into pages containing text, blank pages, or even pages with bookmarks. If you choose to split your PDF by top-level bookmarks, you will automatically have the pages break down based on the bookmarks on each page. If you want to split your PDF into manageable sizes, you can do this by entering the number of pages and the size in megabytes. There are also built-in batch sequencers that can help you create a PDF in seconds. You can then edit the PDFs after they are created, if necessary.
