For quick reply, copy what you want quoted, hit the quote button, paste.

Just do a full quote and then highlight and delete everything you want inside the bracketed codes on each end - you've got to leave them.

^^ Yep, that would be my suggestion, too. Full quote and delete what you don't want.

^^^ And you all wonder why we don't get along.



Bambam, another thing you can do is copy the part of the post you want to quote, then hit the full quote, highlight everything between the quote tags, then paste the part you originally copied.

That way may be fastest?
Just another idea.
