  • Patent number: 10296564
    Abstract: A system comprises a first workstation that locally instantiates a design tool configured to allow a designer to specify a design for a web page. A data store is locally available to the first workstation, and receives and stores the design as a saved design. A second workstation provides access to a code editor to allow a programmer to specify a modification to an encoding of the design. A server means instantiates the code editor for the second workstation, saves the modification as a saved modification, and serves the encoding of the design in accordance with the modification by combining the saved modification with the saved design. The server means seamlessly combines the saved design and the saved modification such that the saved modification and the saved design can each be independently altered and recombined to produce a modified encoding of the design.

  • Patent number: 10296577
    Abstract: A collaborative content management system allows for the mutual-synchronization of content within a spreadsheet and within a document in which a set of spreadsheet cells are embedded. When a user modifies the embedded set of cells, the spreadsheet is updated to reflect the modification. A set of tasks, for instance each associated with descriptive text and one or more interactive elements, can be incorporated into a set of spreadsheet cells such that a user can interact with the tasks. A data value from a spreadsheet cell can be embedded into a document such that when the spreadsheet is updated and the data value changes, the corresponding embedded data value within the document can be changed. Spreadsheets can also include comments that can be navigated using a movable interface element that changes position within the spreadsheet based on a location of a set of cells corresponding to a comment.

  • Patent number: 10296574
    Abstract: A computing device and method for use in enabling contextual ink annotation in a mapping interface are disclosed. In one aspect, the computing method may include receiving a map view request to render a map view of map data based upon a current map rendering context, determining that a previously created virtual ink annotation is associated with a location within the map view, the virtual ink annotation having a previous map rendering context captured at a time of creation of the virtual ink annotation, and comparing the current map rendering context to the previous map rendering context associated with the virtual ink annotation. The method may further include, based on a result of the comparison, controlling display of the virtual ink annotation in a rendered map view.

  • Patent number: 10289673
    Abstract: A method for obtaining server-side and client-side calculations performed in a document includes presenting, on a client computer, the document stored on a server and receiving an input, where the input causes a calculation in the document. The client computer performs the calculation on the client computer and sends the input to the server to concurrently perform the calculation on the server. The client computer obtains a first result from the calculation performed on the client computer and a second result from the calculation performed on the server, selects the first result or the second result as a selected result based on which of the first result or the second result is obtained quicker from the calculation performed on the client computer and the calculation performed on the server, and presents, in the document, the selected result to the user.
