Is a screen grab the only way to print out your messages? I got a list of corrections from a client that I'd like to print to and I don't see any other way to do it.

Just copy/paste into a word processing program and print from there.

Printing messages direct from Upwork should be a given! There's so many great things about the Upwork platform, but this is a big gap. Staying on top of conversations with clients should be easy and supported.


Cutting and pasting to Word, sure! Print direct from Upwork -- shouldn't be that hard to set up should it?


Thanks for a great and ever-improving platform.

I don't think printing anything that is not essential should be easy.


Think trees and environment.

Petra, I might be more inclined to agree with you if Upwork messages were formatted in a more readable way that allowed a person to work digitally from message content. 


That person would never be me--I do everything on paper and the quality of my writing suffers terribly if I'm confined to working from digital source materials--but for those who have learned to live in the modern world, I'm sure it would make a difference.

Right clicking in the messages area of the page lets you print visible messages. It's not perfect but at least it's not a screen grab of the entire window.


Also the Personal Notepad prints nicely. The three dots in the upper right (next to the phone icon) opens a menu which then gets you to the Notepad. Right-click on the top of the notepad area - where it says "Personal Notepad" to get to the browser's "Print ..." command.

Appreciate the tips Sheila.  On my end, right click in the messages, does grab info outside the messages and with my long-winded messages, it will still be multiple screen grabs to get everything.


My kingdom for a text only print option. 


Thanks very much for the idea though. Will check out the notepad too.
