“A client and I were discussing important information on WeChat and after he left the chat room, I began to think, it is possible for me to print out the messages? I have tried copying them and pasting the text into Notes and then attaching to email but there are too many. Anyone with any other ideas?”
Like our user above, many people are using social media apps like WeChat to discuss important information. It is therefore not uncommon to find yourself in a situation where you need to print out the messages since they could be used as evidence in a court of law or you want to have a hard copy. But as the user above pointed out, it can be rather difficult to print out messages like these especially if you have a lot of them.
