For example, typing a word "Alice" in the search box will show all your conversations with contacts named Alice as well as the conversations mentioning Alice.

You can also filter your messages by date by using the "Set Date Range" button in TouchCopy. Setting a date range will only return messages marked within the range specified. You can show all messages choosing Set Date Range > "Show All Messages" button.

Using this filter, you can select only certain messages to print, rather than printing the entire conversation thread!
