Title: Multiple Solutions/Designs in Same Provisional?
Post by: John Weber on April 09, 2020, 10:25:14 AM
If I have several similar ways to solve a problem...should I list them all in one patent app?  I am considering focusing on the simplest, most elegant and manufacturable design in the description/main body of specification and then quickly showing 2-3 other designs in my drawings.  Beneficial?  Or may just cause issues?
Thx

I would include them.   You don't have to claim them but it can often be beneficial to have them in.
