I am trying to download an EP document in Espacenet but apparently it is too large - I need a copy of this document urgently. Please help me.

Document too large

Dear Nelly,

In Espacenet you can download or print documents containing up to 500 pages. For EP documents of 500 or more pages, you can retrieve and download the full document in our European publication server. The European Publication Server covers European patent documents published by the EPO from 1978/12/20 to 2015/01/21.

For non-EP documents with 500 or more pages, you will need to print or download them on a page by page basis or order a paper copy here.

We hope this helps you!
