Sidebar options greyed out

Post by Patent Newbie » Thu May 28, 2015 12:04 pm

Can anyone tell me why some sidebar options are deactivated for certain documents?

I'm actually trying to view the claims of a Brazilian patent.

Dear Nelly,

The tabs are deactivated whenever data or parts of a document are not available. If the full-text of this particular document is not available, the claims and description tabs will be greyed out.

You could check if there is a simple patent family member under "Also published as" to see if the equivalent description and claims are available.

Kind regards,
