Which messages can I print?

How to Print Text Messages from iPhone - You can directly print out any of your SMS, MMS, iMessage or WhatsApp messages from within TouchCopy by simply selecting the desired conversation, and then clicking the "Print" button in the TouchCopy control bar. From here your standard print settings page will open for you to print the required message. TouchCopy will print your message in the same format that they are displayed on your iOS device.

TouchCopy will print all the important information from your conversations:

  • Texts sent and received.
  • Attached media (emojis, photos, etc.).
  • Contact details: name, image (optional) and number (optional).
  • Times and dates on which the messages were sent/received.

You may not want to print your entire conversation - maybe you only want a select few messages for evidence in court, or to preserve a precious memory. Check out our previous page for information on searching messages and setting a date range.

Customizing your printout

TouchCopy provides a couple of options when you're considering printing out your messages.

Long conversations can take up lots of paper, so you can reduce the amount of paper needed by getting more messages on each piece of paper.

In Options, you can alter the size of the text (bigger for easier reading, or smaller for more text on a page), and a "Compact Layout" which will reduce the amount of white-space between messages (again, allowing for more messages per page).

To see this in action, or for more information, see TouchCopy Options.

If you're not ready to print your text messages yet, TouchCopy also lets you save messages to your computer as HTML, PDF or txt files! This way, you'll always have a record of your messages for safekeeping, and you can go back and print from these files whenever you need to!
