Once you have submitted your changes, you cannot withdraw them. Please submit a new copy and present it clearly.

Hii
Regarding filing more than a one voluntary amendment in the response to a communication was pursuant to Rule 161 for an EPO-PCT, it is generally not advisable to do so unless absolutely necessary. While there is no explicit restriction on filing multiple voluntary amendments, it can w e complicate of the examination process and may a lead to the confusion.
