". . . it takes me to the patent office and dumps me on page 14 of 217 from a search query. Perhaps that's the problem?"
I did not realize that was happening, and yes, that is the problem. I connected to the Patent Office home page and, after some experimentation, figured out how to obtain access to just the one patent application (after the 2 lines of Patent Office title and 4 lines of buttons, there is a line that says "1 of 1").
The link for that web page works in the PDF.
Thanks for your help.
