EN:Family chart

From IP7 Wiki

The family chart gives you a great overview about the structure of a selected patent family.
Also, the simplified legal status of the family members (published, granted, lapsed, …) is displayed in different colours.
When a patent or patent family is selected, the family chart can be opened via the menu.



By clicking on one of the patent numbers displayed in the family diagram, the respective patent is displayed in detail view.
By using the settings, the design of the family diagram can be individually adjusted.
Among various other options, it is possible to move the individual blocks (family members) to a desired position.
The family chart can also be exported as an image or Word document.
