When conducting a search on Espacenet, how can I distinguish between "Additional Information" and "Invention Information" in the cpc symbols displayed for a particular search result? Thanks

Invention Information vs Addtional Information on espacenet

Hi Franklyn,

The CPC codes for invention information are in a bold font and the additional information normal font, eg.,

EP2725662 (A2)
Cooperative classification: H01B11/02; H01R13/6463; H01R23/662; H01B7/0876; H01R12/79; H01R13/506

The first three codes are in bold font to indicate "inventive information" and the last three in normal font to show the "additional information".

Thanks "Patent Information 2"! As a follow up question, would the 'First Invention Information' be the first bold symbol shown and then the remaining bold symbols be the remaining 'Invention Information'?
