  • Patent number: 10909197
    Abstract: A method for determining the significance of a document, or a portion thereof, is disclosed. Accordingly a search engine, or some other application, analyzes user associated content portions of a document to determine a relevance score for the document (e.g. Curation Rank). The particular algorithm for determining the relevance score will vary depending upon the particular implementation, but may generally be based upon an analysis of the number and quality of user associated content portions, comments, ratings of the user's themselves, and the ratings of users contributing to interactions (e.g. sharing) with the content portions. Based on this analysis, the document is assigned a relevance score which is used for ranking the document in accordance with instructions associated with a search query. E.g. the document relevance score may be used in selecting and ordering documents returned in search results for a particular search query.

  • Patent number: 10210229
    Abstract: In an approach for creating a file, a computer receives a selection on a selection of content within application software on a first computing device to transfer to a clipboard. The computer appends metadata of the received selection with metadata indicating application software and file association information that corresponds to the selected content. The computer receives an indication to paste the selected content from the clipboard to a second computing device. The computer determines whether compatible application software on the second computing device is capable of accepting the selected content included in the received indication to paste. The computer responsive to determining that compatible application software on the second computing device is not capable of accepting the selected content included in the received indication to paste, creates a file that includes the selected content included in the received indication to paste and appended metadata.

  • Patent number: 8881060
    Abstract: A multifunction device displays a plurality of selectable user interface objects on the display. In response to detecting the first input, the device moves a first object in the plurality of selectable user interface objects across the display to a location on the display that is proximate to a second object in the plurality of selectable user interface objects. In response to detecting that the first input meets predefined folder-creation criteria while the first object is proximate to the second object, the device creates a folder that contains the first object and the second object.

  • Publication number: 20140304633
    Abstract: A system provides for a clipboard manager for showing thumbnails in a clipboard while editing a document via a clipboard manager. The clipboard manager allows a user to select data from a second document. Upon selection, the clipboard manager generates a thumbnail that distinctly represents the data and stores the thumbnail and data in a clipboard. The thumbnail contains a miniaturized view of the data. The clipboard manager further allows the user to identify a paste location in the document that is to be edited. The clipboard manager displays the thumbnail in the clipboard in response to the user selecting a paste command. The user can employ the clipboard manager to insert the data at the paste location by selecting the thumbnail from the clipboard.

  • Patent number: 8832543
    Abstract: A formatting tool enables “smart” copy and paste functions. The “smart” copy and paste functions can be invoked in a context-sensitive manner, depending on the conditions under which the copy and paste functions are implemented. The present invention will automatically include in a selection a paragraph marker at the end of a selected paragraph, if every other textual character in the paragraph has been selected. The present invention will discard a paragraph mark that is included in pasted text if the pasted text is pasted into the middle of another paragraph, indicating that the user prefers the formatting of the pasted-into paragraph. The present invention also reduces inconsistencies in formatting styles that may exist between source and target documents automatically redefining a style in the target document to conform to a corresponding style in the source document. The present invention also automatically adjusts paragraph spacing, in response to text being pasted into a target document.

  • Patent number: 8826121
    Abstract: A web browser magnifies the content of the whole page in memory and displays the relevant portion in a magnifier with hyperlinks. The web browser then maps the magnified display to the original document. Thus, manipulation of the mouse in the magnified display may result in an action with respect to the original document. The user may then select a link for navigation within the magnified display. Alternatively, the web browser may analyze the original web page and construct magnifier contents on the basis of either the document object model, extensible markup language (XML), or hypertext markup language (HTML) representation of the magnified portion.
