  • Patent number: 11074219
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable medium for a visual file manager are described. For example, operation of a visual file manager on a graphical user interface (GUI) of a computer system is described in which a folder in a folder hierarchy of the computer system is graphically represented by a canvas of the visual file manager, the canvas being configured to provide zooming capabilities (e.g., zoom in, zoom out) for the graphical representation of the folder, and contents of the folder being configured to be individually and graphically modified within the canvas. Collaborative work is enabled by allowing access to the graphical representation of the folder to multiple users. A folder within the linked folder can be represented by a rectangular panel on the canvas. Multiple folders can be graphically represented by multiple panels on the canvas, where each panel can be individually and graphically modified based on user preferences.

  • Patent number: 11068105
    Abstract: Disclosed are touch sensitive devices and methods of responding to hits in touch sensitive devices that include a graphical user interface having interface elements, each associated with a program element. A hit test map updater is used to process graphical user interface information into a hit test map in connection with the rendering of the graphical user interface, such that the hit test map associates properties with interface elements appearing on the graphical user interface. An input processor is used to receive a location corresponding to an input in connection with an input event, search the hit test map in which values are associated with interface elements appearing in the graphical user interface, and identify a property of the interface element from the values. In an embodiment, the identified property is proved to a central processing system and a user interface event is generated.

  • Patent number: 11048429
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed that allow for retroactively capturing a debug/trace-level log without experiencing the severe performance degradation that obtaining such a log would otherwise entail. Trace-level logging is performed by maintaining a buffer of log messages for application events. The buffer is allocated a memory having very fast write speeds, and writing such messages into the buffer has a negligible performance impact. Many of the messages written into the buffer may not be important or useful at the time they are written. However, when a failure occurs, the messages may be useful for figuring out what when wrong. Responsive to detecting a failure or other anomalous event, the buffer of messages is automatically written to a permanent storage. Although writing to the permanent storage may be slow, the performance degradation is only incurred when a failure occurs.

  • Patent number: 10956786
    Abstract: An object-extraction method includes generating multiple partition objects based on an electronic document, and receiving a first user selection of a data element via a user interface of a compute device. In response to the first user selection, and using a machine learning model, a first subset of partition objects from the multiple partition objects is detected and displayed via the user interface. A user interaction, via the user interface, with one of the partition objects is detected, and in response, a weight of the machine learning model is modified, to produce a modified machine learning model. A second user selection of the data element is received via the user interface, and in response and using the modified machine learning model, a second subset of partition objects from the multiple partition objects is detected and displayed via the user interface, the second subset different from the first subset.
