Patent Center Beta Release

Larger character limit than 50 characters for fillable fields

When filling in any fillable fields in Patent Center's web-based forms, there is a 50 character limit. Some of the companies for which I file applications have company name lengths longer than 50 characters, so I cannot use many of the web fillable forms (ADS, Issue Fee payment forms, etc.) any time I would have to type the company name into these online forms, for example as the Applicant name, or assignee name. Instead, I have to markup .pdf or paper forms and upload those marked up documents to Patent Center or EFS-Web in order to make my submission. Please increase your character limit for these fillable fields to 75 or 100 characters so that I and others who have entries like Applicant Name that are longer than 50 characters can use the web-fillable forms in Patent Center to file applications and amend ADS's.
