This is the third in a series of questions and answers from the June 14-17 webinars in our WestlawNext research expert series. The first two posts covered search refinement tools and related materials in results lists.
Q: When we switch to WestlawNext, will we still be able to print documents on dedicated Westlaw printers?
A: Printing to dedicated printers is not available at this time but is being developed.
Q: When I print a case where I have highlighted text, will the text be highlighted on paper?
A: You can choose to print a document with highlighting and annotations. The highlighted text will appear in yellow on color printers and shaded on black-and-white printers.
Q: Another question about highlighted text: If I run another search and the same case comes up, will the highlighting still be there?
A: Yes, the case will remain highlighted until you choose to delete the highlighting from that document.
Q: If you want a copy, are you charged to print it?
A: Yes. See the subscriber document on the Tools tab for specific delivery pricing information.
Q: Can you print from the browser window?
A: You can print from your browser, but then you lose all of WestlawNext’s delivery formatting options.
Q: Can you copy and paste without additional charges?
A: Copy with Reference carries no additional charge.
