comment patent continuation
I filed the patent application in the UK. I know that here during the first 12 months I can file another application and claim priority to the first one. Common information to both applications will retain the first filing date. I guess that it's similar to a continuation-in-part in the US.

comment Turning an existing description of a system into a description of a method
I'm still curious about the unexpected large number of patents I found that mention “method” in the title and in the claims but there is not explicit references to “methods” in the description. Maybe the result of my search returned patents that were claiming priority of another patent that did make explicit references to “methods” in the description?

comment Turning an existing description of a system into a description of a method
Ok, thanks. I think I got a bit confused by trying to write a description that could support any sort of claim types. At the end it's been easier than I was imagining, I just wrote the method claims (at the highest level of abstraction) and from them made 3 flowcharts, all steps starting with gerunds -ing. One flowchart is for the user steps. Then when explaining these steps I linked them to the system implementation of the corresponding steps. I put all that in it's own section titled “Description of methods” (couldn't think of a better title).
