    Also, the "select the first word, and hold shift-down" trick described in the original post at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 doesn't seem to work for me, in the standalone app or the webapp, but the scroll up trick I described below does (only in the webapp).

    ...and that's on MacOS High Sierra 10.13.2 (17C89).

    You can sort of do this.
    I seem to have figured out a loophole. In the Teams webapp, not the standalone app, if you click and hold to highlight while scroll up ABOVE a single page of text, you can actually copy! Begin highlighting BELOW the bottommost post you wish to copy, and then, in one swift motion, drag ALL the way up, ABOVE the top of the conversation. When pasting into your buffer, use "paste as style" or else it tries to paste a bunch of images and doesn't show text.

    I can confirm this works using Chrome Version 63.0.3239.132 (Official Build) (64-bit), pasting from the Teams webapp into the Office 365 Outlook webapp.
