Abstract

Disclosed is a method to print the pages on which a contextual search hit occurs along with the preceding page and the following page. A contextual search program will search the content of a document to find matches as specified in the contextual search criteria. When a library is searched, often the result of the search is a list of document names that meet the search criteria. When a single document is searched, often the result of the search is a copy of the document with the hits highlighted. However, a user may just want to read the section of the document that contains topics of interest. Including the preceding page and following page along with the page on which the hit occurred, insures that the user will have the needed context material.
