Does Facebook Save Chats?

I need to save a Facebook chat conversation with a friend in a text document or something similar to read it later.

I tried highlighting everything so I can copy it but it won't let me. Also, if I copy and paste it in an application like Microsoft Word, the text is deformed.

Is there a way to save chats in Facebook?

Yes, there is a way to save a Facebook chat.
Just click on it, then press Ctrl+A to select all the text
then press Ctrl+C to copy the text you selected
It will copy everything on the entire page.

Now go to Word or other text application
hit Ctrl+V
And finally erase what you don't want.

I think that if you paste it first in notepad, it will remove all the weird stuff you don't want, but I'm not sure. Haven't tried it yet.

No, I don't think Facebook has the permission to save Chats since they're considered private and they don't want to get in trouble.
So you can write whatever you want in Facebook Chat, it won't get saved.
