I REMARKS Office A te on ail d a 6d e9n9ts Apd tl a -5- esp c fully rh aere pomideeratiohne 004860.Pl ao->v APLNDC00028057 the present application. Claims 1-31 remain in the application. c ms 1, 11, 15, 25, and 26 have been amended. The Examiner rejected claims 1-31 under 35 U.S.C. 112, second paragraph, as being indefinite for failing to particularly point out and distinctly claim the subject matter which applicant regards as the invention. Claims 1, 11, 15, 26, and 26 have been amended to more particularly point out and distinctly claim what Applicant considers the invention. The Exa.. .· further rejected Cl- ---- 26-30 under 35 U.S.C. 102(b) as being anticipated by Takagi et al. (U.S. Patent 4,885,704) ("Takagi I"). Takagi I teaches a document filing apparatus. Specifically, Takagi I teaches a document filing apparatus including" d- - -----ent window 201 for displaying document images including characters is substantially centered in the display screen. Icons (also called "selection marks" or "commands") are arrayed in the right portion of the document window 201, and give an operator various necessary indications, such as image-enlarging and reducing, and rotation and scroll of the displayed image. . . . The display further contains a function area 202 provided in connection with function keys F1 to F10. The function area contains icons F1 to F10 indicating various devices for inputting and outputting documents such as a scanner, printer, display, and file. (Takagi I, column , lines ). Thus, Takagi teaches a document filing apparatus, which is a single application that permits manipulation of documents. Takagi does not teach or suggest a "a window region independentlly_dis21ayed and independently active of any application program, as claimed in Claim 26. Rather, Takagi teaches displayed function keys that permit access to printing, sc-..---:--g, saving, and other functions of a single "document filing apparatus" taught by Takagi. Furthermore, the present invention as claimed sets further that the "the first window region and the plurality of independent display areas implemented itt a window layer that appears on top of application programming windows that may be generated." Takagi does not disclose -6- 004860.P132 APLNDC00028058 T the first window region and independent display areas being in a window layer that appears on top of application programming windows that may be generated. Therefore, the present invention as claimed does not teach, mention, nor disclose the present invention as claimed. Moreover, the display areas of Takagi are not interactive. Rather, the display areas display static information, such as "-,er," "printer," "display," etc. Therefore, Takagi does not anticipate, or make obvious claim 26, as amended. The Examiner further rejected claims 1-3, 8-25 under 25 U.S.C. §103(a) as being unpatentable over Cohausz in view of Takagi I. The Examiner states that Cohausz does not teach a status bar with a plurality of individual progr--------°--g modules associated with different programs, nor does Cohausz teach that the first window region is displayed separately from any application program. The Examiner states that Takagi makes up the missing elements in Cohausz. However, as discussed above, Takagi does not teach or suggest an independently displayed and independently active window region, as claimed. Rather, as can be seen in Figure 2, Takagi teaches a document filing apparatus that includes functionalities, including icons and a function area indicating various devices for inputting and outputting documents that are within the d ent filing apparatus. Therefore, Takagi does not teach or suggest a window region that is independently displayed and independently active of any application program. Therefore, Claims 1-3, and 8-25 are not anticipated by or obvious over Cohausz in view of Takagi. The Ex---- --er further rejected claims 4-7. Mills teaches a resizeable window. Mills does not make up the elements missing in Cohausz and Takagi. Mills does not teach or suggest a display area that is independently displayed and independently active of any application program. Therefòre, claims 4-7 are not obvious over Cohausz, in view of Takagi, further in view of Mills. -7- 004860.P13- - APLNDC00028059 Claim 31 was rejected over Takagi in view of Mills. Claim 31 depends on Claim 26, and incorporates all of the limitations of claim 26. As discussed above, Takagi and Mills, alone or in combination, do not teach or suggest an independently active and independently displayed window, as claimed. Therefore, Claim 31 is not obvious over Takagi in view of Mills. In view of the foregoing amendments and remarks, applicant respectfully submits that all pending claims are in condition for allowance. Such allowance is respectfully requested. If the Exon a finds any remammg impediment to the prompt allowance of these claims that could be clarified with a telephone conference, the Examiner is respectfully requested to contact Judith A. Szepesi at (408) 720-8598. Authorization is hereby given to charge our Deposit Account No. 02-2666 for any charges that may be due.
