  • Patent number: 10108615
    Abstract: Automated presentation of repeated content is provided herein. Using historic documents, an index of repeatedly-used content blocks is created. As a user authors a current document, the authoring application is in communication with a trigger analyzer that receives edits and authoring commands from the user. The trigger analyzer compares the edits and authoring commands to the indexed content blocks, and creates previews of potential matches from the index of repeated content that are provided to the user. Depending on user preferences and application settings, these previews are presented to the user as selectable controls in a graphical user interface. If the user selects a preview, the content block associated with the preview is transmitted to the current document for insertion therein. The present disclosure improves the user experience, reduces the use of bandwidth, memory, and processing power to reuse content between documents.

    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes an image memory, an image receiving unit, an image determination unit, an image search unit, an image forming unit, and an image converter. The image memory stores replacement image data. The image receiving unit receives image data from the outside. The image determination unit determines whether the received-image data includes to-be-replaced image data. The image search unit searches, in a case where it is determined that the received-image data includes the to-be-replaced image data, the image memory for replacement image data corresponding to the to-be-replaced image data. The image forming unit forms an image. The image converter converts, in a case where the corresponding replacement image data is detected, the received-image data into to-be-output image data in which the to-be-replaced image data is replaced with the corresponding replacement image data, and causes an image based on the to-be-output image data to be formed.

  • Patent number: 9959027
    Abstract: Presented here are systems and methods to enable software applications to display images on irregular screen shapes containing the shape without display functionality. In one embodiment, the shape without display functionality is confined within a bounding shape, which, when subtracted from the irregular screen shape leaves a rectangular area of the screen where the image can be displayed. The area within the bounding shape can be occupied by images provided by the operating system associated with the irregular screen, such as a status bar and/or navigation bar. In another embodiment, the image can be displayed on the full irregular screen, such that the shape without display functionality covers a part of the image. When the occluded part of the image contains a critical object, such as a menu item, a button, etc., the image can be modified to move the critical object out of the area occluded by the shape without display functionality.

  • Patent number: 9645714
    Abstract: A user interface for a media processing apparatus is adapted to process image receiving media so as to determine a physical configuration of a media sheet. The user interface includes a screen, a controller adapted to receive image data specifying an image to be received on a sheet and to control the screen so as to display a preview showing the sheet with the image received thereon, an input section adapted to input preview editing commands, and an output section adapted to output set commands for the media processing apparatus. The controller is adapted to derive the set commands from the preview editing commands.

  • Patent number: 9600447
    Abstract: A layout manager can generate a layout for displaying a plurality of content units in a display area using a layout strategy, with the layout strategy specifying a layout design rule. The generated layout can indicate a position in the display area for the plurality of content units. In some embodiments, the design rule(s) may in effect “codify” traditional graphic design principles. When the layout is generated, the content units can be placed into a display area of a page and then the layout can be checked against at least one design rule and the layout adjusted as needed to meet the design rule. The system can comprise a user interface module that renders the content units in the display area using the generated layout. In some embodiments, content units are placed into a layout on a one-by-one basis according to priority, available display space, and one or more design rules.

  • Patent number: 9529788
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to a system for assisting creation of messages by providing selectable templates. The system includes an application configured to provide a form which receives information. The form is configured based on a template, such as a default template or an alternate template. A user is able to switch between templates any time during the process of completing the form. The templates share one or more common fields. The application is configured to persist user data associated with at least one of the one or more common fields. The application is also configured to refresh/update the form with relevant fields and editable content associated with a template, and any persisted user data upon selection of that template. In some embodiments, the alternate templates include templates based on posts previously completed by the user and/or canned templates which are category-specific.

  • Patent number: 9349130
    Abstract: Both a relative positioned resource and an absolute positioned resource may be generated using a single editor having a single syntax for both the relative and absolute positioned elements. A layout module generates an intermediate data structure based on element information. The element information includes content of at least one element, Cartesian coordinates of the at least one element, and dimensional information of the at least one element. A unified processing module generates a first resource having absolute positioned elements by processing the intermediate data structure, and generates a second resource having relative positioned elements by processing the same intermediate data structure.

  • Patent number: 9262766
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to systems and methods for processing advertisement opportunities when a user views content on a mobile device. An agent on a mobile device may contextualize a portion of a page being viewed to identify and send contextual data to a contextualization service. The contextualization service may use the contextual data to select a campaign from a plurality of campaigns to deliver an in line banner advertisement for content being viewed. Based on the selected campaign, the contextualization service may send the agent an advertisement or campaign information for display, such as an inline banner at a natural break in the content being viewed. Instead of having an advertisement predetermined or fixed prior to the display of the content, the present systems and methods may dynamically contextualize the page at the point of viewing based on the content of the page being viewed.

  • Patent number: 9164983
    Abstract: A method for identification of a standard text token in a dictionary that corresponds to a non-standard token identified in text includes identification of a first standard token that is associated with the non-standard using a predetermined conditional random field (CRF) model and identification of a second standard token that is associated with the non-standard token using a spell checker. The method further includes identification of noisy channel scores using data from the CRF model and the spell checker for the first standard token and the second standard token, respectively. The method further includes presentation of one of the first and second standard tokens having the greatest identified noisy channel score to a user with a user interface device.

  • Patent number: 9116648
    Abstract: Automatic photo-album layout methods create printed pages by assigning each image in an ordered series of images to a position on one of several rows (or positions in one of several columns). Images in each row (or each column) are scaled so that the widths of the rows (or the heights of the columns) are equal, while the heights of the rows (or the widths of the columns) are unequal. The rows or columns form a rectangle, which is centered in a rectangular drop zone, and a physical page is printed containing the array of images as arranged and scaled. Other transformations may be applied to the images, the rows or columns, or the array of images in the drop zone prior to printing.
