I want to show a screenshot of sms message chat

One message is longer than 140 characters so I need to click on that message and show screenshot of that one message because on screen only first 140 characters
I would like to show everything on one screen.
Maybe reduce font size also so I can show a third & fourth message

Your character limit is set sometimes by the phone and can be altered by the carrier as well. Also not to mention that the receiving device may have different restrictions on it. You can use third party apps to increase this on your side. Below is a link to some of the better ones in reviews.

You need to change font size and style settings.

Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

Touch Search, then search for and select Screen zoom and font.  

To adjust the Font size, touch and drag the slider to the left or to the right. A preview of the font size will appear at the top of the screen.

It is the UI design and you cannot change it.

Besides, I am not aware of any text messaging app which can do what you want as there are seldom text message will is longer than 140 characters.

Best explanation is that it can not be done and why it can not be done.
