    I think the title of the article is misleading - the lady there is talking about "backing up" all your text messages to a computer.

    For instance - in part 1 it says:
    Note: You can't view or open the exported text messages on computer because the messages are backed up in one file as well as photos, music, contacts, etc
    Not what the OP wants, I don't think

    do a backup differently, but my backup includes everything on the phone.

    I thought the OP just wants to forward a select number of text messages to the Mac.

    I don't have an android phone, so I didn't check out the article. Thanks for the info.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.

    On Android 4.4.2 I do this:
    Go to Messages and the conversation where I want to forward a text
    Select the text I want to forward
    Touch and hold until the secondary menu appears
    Select "Forward" from the list of options on that menu
    Type in the Email address I want the text message forwarded to (or just select it if it is already on the phone)
    Click "Sent"

    Seems all very logical to me to forward specific texts to an email.
    After a few seconds or minutes, the email appears in my inbox (I sent it to myself) and I get the complete email - but no subject line.

    That's the problem Krs. I can send the email as you have stated, but I only get a single line and the text/sms would be 20 or so screen prints.

    I have bitten the bullet, used Photo Booth and the MacBook camera and taken shots of the complete text. Not very good quality, but enough to read. So the job is now complete, if not totally satisfactorily.

    sorry if my spelling is not up to much but I have a disyleksic keybaord

    Strange that this wouldn't work for you.

    The text message I tried was the longest one I had in any conversation.

    I assume you are trying to forward ONE message, not the whole conversation.

    I assumed they were trying to get an entire conversation.

    I was trying for the whole threaad of the conversation, but it only sent one message in that conversation.

    I had just seen part of it before and just realised that instead of wrapping it into the width of the screen it had sent the complet part and kept it on one line and I hadn't seen that I had to scroll a long way to the right to see it.

    No matter where I positioned the thread and selected it just selects a part at seemingly random and sends that.

    I have just tried it on another part of the thread and it sent the next part down, not the part I had elected.

    This is getting stupid and too complicated for my brain cell and I am going to kick it into touch as not feasable. It isn't worth spending time on such a silly problem as I have more than enough to deal with at the moment. So a big thank you for all of you that have tried to get me onto the right track and given your time so freely, once again!

    Thank you folks.
    John.

    This is very interesting for those interested in the technology end of things.
    I get the ame thing as you when I make my Apple Mail window smaller - there is no word wrap and the text at the right just disappears and reappears as you make the window narrower and wider. I ended up with three lines in my forwarded text because the sender of the original text hit the return key.

    What I found even more interesting is if you forward that email and reduce width of the Mail window, the text does wrap, but letter by letter, not word by word.
    So it seems the text message is forwarded letter by letter (or symbol by symbol).

    As to forwarding the whole conversation at once, I think you need an app for that.

    o matter where I positioned the thread and selected it just selects a part at seemingly random and sends that.

    I have just tried it on another part of the thread and it sent the next part down, not the part I had elected.
    On android 4.4.2 the message forwarded is always exactly the one I select.
    After I select it and after I select "forward" the message shows up in a separate window so I see exactly what will be forwarded - I can then add or delete or modify that message.
