Re: Drawings resolution

Dear Jpat, Espacenet is using newer version of images backend at the moment, but this will at some point be aligned with the new version of OPS. At the moment, you can only get data as currently available in OPS. I had a look at both and the version from OPS is still very good, although not as great...
