View, Print and Search Freelaw®
To view a publication, select the "Free Download" button (). This opens another browser window, starts the Adobe Reader application, and displays the publication for you to review, print, search and save.
You can print from within the new browser window containing the legislative publication. Select from the standard menu (i.e. Internet Explorer, choose File, Print) or use the Print Icon ().
Each PDF publication can be searched. Most Freelaw® publications are complete text but some have images from older publications (such as forms and pictures).
Three types of searches are possible:
Internal File Search - Adobe Reader PDF file
These instructions are for the Adobe Reader Search within a document.
On opening a Freelaw® publication (PDF), search within the publication using the Adobe Reader icons. The Find icon () opens a window in which you can add text then select the Search button. A shortcut to Search is Ctrl-F (use the arrow keys to see the next result).
Freelaw® service allows you to save the PDF for personal use only; commercial re-distribution is not allowed. The Saskatchewan Queen's Printer retains Copyright and has Official Versions of legislation.
