Patent Center Beta Release

Downloading IFW is non-intuitive

One of our listserv members reports: Downloading IFW is non-intuitive. A user downloads the IFW in PC by clicking on the box showing the number of documents selected and then selects the type of download. After doing so, however, nothing happens – there is no pop-up message that informs the user a download is in progress or has been initiated, and the download is not indicated by any web browser icon/message. The downloaded IFW eventually opens in a PDF viewer, but until then the user has no way of knowing whether the download request was successful.
