  • Patent number: 10216368
    Abstract: Non-limiting examples of the present disclosure describe functionality for content selection that efficiently enables block copying of content from an executing application even when content is traditionally non-selectable in the executing application. An application may be executing, for example, on a computing device. Input may be received that triggers activation of a user interface for content selection. A layered view of the application and the user interface may be presented based on the received input. As an example, the layered view presents the user interface layered over the application. A block portion of content from the application may be selected based on a single action. Among other examples, the single action may be a non-continuous device click or a non-continuous touch input processed through the user interface. Additional action(s) for the selected block portion of content may be accessible through the user interface.

  • Patent number: 10210147
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein enable reduction of characters in a character-limited scenario by minimally editing a text to remain within a character limit while maintaining a tone of a user's writing. More specifically, as a user enters text into a character-limited field, character reduction opportunities for shortening words or phrases are identified in the text. These identified opportunities for shortening words or phrases are compared with a historical writing tone profile of the user in order to preserve a tone and style of the user. Words or phrases that are presented and implemented to shorten the text entered by the user are only sufficient to bring a character count of the entered text within the character limit of the character-limited field. Once the text is within the character limit, no further character reduction is applied.
