Cipher will present a maximum of twenty technology clusters. However, if a group of patent families creates more than twenty clusters, Cipher will show the top nine and group the remaining clusters into ‘miscellaneous’.

How can I see the technology clusters that are are included under 'Miscellaneous'?

  1. After creating a report, select the chart: Portfolio Size > Active patent families, by organisation and technology 

  2. Ensure that the 'miscellaneous' technology cluster is selected in the report. 

  3. Click on the 'miscellaneous' cluster from the chart

  4. This will bring up the underlying data from the chart

  5. Click 'Options' and 'create a new report' 

A new report will be generated from the filtered data (i.e. only miscellaneous) in the original report. The new report will show smaller technology clusters grouped under 'Miscellaneous'.
