  2. Select the Apparatus Claims/CRM Claims option from the Claims > Generate menu in the toolbar.


  3. Your new claim(s) will be added at the end of your claims listing.


Generate Dependent Apparatus/CRM Claims

To create an apparatus or CRM claim dependent from your method claim:

  1. Select the independent method claim(s) you wish to transform.

  2. Select the Dependent Apparatus Claims/Dependent CRM Claims option from the Claims > Generate menu in the toolbar.


  3. Your new claim(s) will be added at the end of your claims listing.


Other Options for These Actions

You can also access these transformation options under the Specification > Generate from Selected Claims menu

OR

the More Claims Options menu

OR

for a single claim, the context menu that appears when you right+click a claim.

Reviewing and Changing the Auto-Generation Settings

  1. Click the Tools button in the toolbar and navigate to the Settings tab if needed




    OR Select the Settings option under the Tools menu.


    OR Select the Define Claim Template option from the Specification > Generate from Selected Claims OR the More Claims Options menus shown above.

  2. Review and make your desired changes using the controls for Claim to Claim Generation. Sample text is provided to give you a preview of the resulting transformations.


  3. With the Infinitive option selected, claims will transform as shown in the examples above. The illustration below shows transformation results when the Present Participle option is selected.


    Note that changes to the Claim to Claim Generation template are applied going forward, but not retroactively to previously generated claims.

    Note also that these settings are stored at a file level. If you customize these fields for a particular client, we recommend you set up a base or starting file with the desired settings applied, then open that file and save as a new .rp document for future applications for that client.
