Re: First family publication

Thank you for your explanation, To date, the service is not able to do what you describe.

Re: First family publication

The search filter used by default in GPI is the simple family filter: For a given family, should there be multiple family members matching the search, the result list will include the oldest family member. For example, word= laser /2w beam* returns EP 2383387 A1 published on 2011.11.02 and EP 238338...

Re: no results to query with only excluded items in criteria

Good Morning,

Correct queries are:

clas=F24F andnot APC = CN or KR or JP and PUD [2018-08, 2018-12]
or
clas=F24F and not (APC = CN or KR or JP) and PUD [2018-08, 2018-12]

Please note that the use of brackets is mandatory if you use NOT instead of ANDNOT.

Best regards,

Patrick
