I want to highlight the synonyms of my queried keyword in the same color. How do I do this?

On the patent page, the keywords in your search query are automatically highlighted in different colors. 


There are 2 ways to find synonyms or related keywords. 

  1. Use Keyword Expansion and incorporate the synonyms you choose in your query. These will then be automatically highlighted on the patent pages. 
  2. Manually type in the synonyms you want in the Keyword Highlighter panel. 


To change the highlight color of select synonyms/similar keywords, click on the color icon to open the selection and find the one you want to use.
