Another How to Question

  1. How do you quote a portion of a post and not the whole thing?

    I asked in the good morning thread, but it got buried. That's a question that's been bugging me for a long time since I've been trying different methods with no success.

    I'm in a very chatty mood today, too. Not sure why.

    I do it by erasing the sentences you don't need, but without erasing the [qoute] thingy. Not sure if this is the proper way. Probably not.

    So it would look like this, :chuckle (not sure if this is what you mean?)

    Alternatively, you could highlight and copy the portion you want, then use the little quote button in the quick-reply box and insert it there.

    And here I thought it was something technical. :imbar

    Thanks, you two. And to Siri who posted the same things on the good morning thread.

    Hmmm, only bad thing is that it doesn't have the name of the person that you quoted from.

    There used to be a feature a while ago in which you could just hightlight whatever part of the post you wanted quoted, then click on the "quick reply to this message" button and it would transfer that highlighted part down into the quick reply box. It was great! I asked Brian about it and he said the newer version of software doesn't have it, but he'll keep a look out for it. I really liked that.

    Yeah, it's good to have the source there that you're quoting.
