  • Patent number: 10915699
    Abstract: A document creation platform provides a user interface for creating electronic documents. In response to a first user input, the platform creates an electronic document with a plurality of clauses. In response to a second user input in a first clause, the platform designates a user-specified sequence of words in the first clause as a defined term. The platform also opens an addendum section of the electronic document to receive a user-specified definition of the term. In response to a third user input, the platform inserts the term into the electronic document in a second clause. The platform identifies a fourth user action at a location of the term in the electronic document, and in response: determines that the term has an associated definition; retrieves a current version of the definition from the addendum section; and displays the retrieved current version of the definition in a separate window.

  • Patent number: 10908808
    Abstract: An electronic device, with a touch-sensitive surface and a display, includes one or more sensors to detect intensity of contacts with the touch-sensitive surface. The device detects a contact on the touch-sensitive surface while a focus selector corresponding to the contact is at a respective location on the display associated with additional information not initially displayed on the display. While the focus selector is at the respective location, upon determining that the contact has an intensity above a respective intensity threshold before a predefined delay time has elapsed with the focus selector at the respective location, the device displays the additional information associated with the respective location without waiting until the predefined delay time has elapsed; and upon determining that the contact has an intensity below the respective intensity threshold, the device waits until the predefined delay time has elapsed to display the additional information associated with the respective location.
