Google Patents: missing or incorrect info

This discussion was created from comments split from: New URL / Layout for Google Patents.

    I'm using Zotero 5.077, Firefox 70.0.1 (Apple) and the Zotero app to search patents on Google Patent.

    1. The abstracts and frequently the patent classifications don't download.
    2. When simultaneously saving a group of patents, the literature entry becomes seriously mangled (fields left unfilled, !@#$%^&*-type characters sometimes appear, only a single name appears under the list of inventors)

    Is there a fix? Am I neglecting something?

    PS - Saving the Googlepatent entries to GoogleScholar, followed by as .ris files won't include the desired data.
  • Can you provide some example URLs where you're seeing problems?
  • Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

    For example, here is the URL for a search which I just conducted a few minutes back:

    If you have access to my library, then you can see the result of downloading the fist ten entries of that search. They are located in the folder/subsequent subfolder path sequence:
    NLO - all collections/NLO - patent/Lumera AND Waveguide 1-10

    Those ten entries are also mangled.

    Thanks for looking into this.*

    There may also be other issues, which I will first search for on your discussion forum.
