Hi all new guy here that is overwhelmed with all this. I have had many ideas over the year that have come to fruition for others in time as I never acted on. Well I am ready to act.
I have an idea and prototype and believe it is quite marketable. I started the process of provisional filing but got stuck at the format and fonts for PDF docs. I am not sure if I should just proceed and buy Adobe and learn (I work long hours so it's another stumbling block) or pay a company for that and a good search. I have done a search multiple ways (I do a lot of research in my work) including the USTPO but want to be sure.
I just have read so much about companies taking money, dragging things out and taking advantage. I believe my product has a good to very good untapped market so I dont want to sit on my hands.
