Improve support for patent metadata

ReadCub Papers has a Patent metadata type. However, we find it very difficult to make any use of the information we can enter there. Apart from title and authors, none of the patent specific metadata fields (especially Patent number, application number, filing date and Applicants) are exposed once a record is saved. In addition, those hidden fields are not searchable either, making the entire metadata set less useful.

Please expose at least the most import patent specific metadata fields (Number, Application Number, Applicants, Filing date, URL) when a record is saved.

Please also add support for displaying any or all of these fields in the Library's Table view, especially Number/ Application number.
