Limited usability of mobile version

Post by langlotz » Fri Nov 22, 2019 8:23 am

Dear all

Using new Espacenet on an iPhone SE (4″ display, 1136 × 640 Pix) is very difficult because GUI controls occupy most of the screen. Depending on which fields of a record should be displayed, Espacenet becomes almost unusable (see attached screenshot).


Any ideas how this problem could be overcome will be very much appreciated.

Kind regards,

Dear user,
Thank you for sharing your screenshot with us. Unfortunately there is not much we can do short term, but we will look into squeezing drop-down menus and reducing the occupated space by the GUI for future releases.

At the moment hopefully changing font sizes and zoom levels may help a bit. Please be also aware that classic Espacenet can still be reached (simply click on the Classic Espacenet button in the landing page), in case you find it easier on your device.

Hopefully we can improve the situation soon.
Kind regards
