    Default Help with inline quote posting

    Sometimes I see where some folks answer posts with multiple inline quotes.
    I know how to do it for one(just push the button under the post), but how do you get more than one inline quote in the same post?
    I've tried several times and always loose all but the last one.
    Please explain in easy to understand terms.
    Thanks, KW

    copy and paste the text of the quote then double click on the text to highlight it and then click the "quote" icon in the tool bar...or click the quote icon then paste the text between the brackets...repeat the process etc...

    FWIW... using Windows....placing the cursor on any word in a text field and single clicking will highlight the word, double clicking will highlight the line of text or the paragraph (depending on the format but works on any text field)

    If you're talking about quoting two posts like I did above, use the "Multi-Quote This Message" button. It is located to the right of the "Reply With Quote" button. Push it once for each post you want to quote. It will put a checkmark on the button. If you push it again, it will remove the checkmark. Once you have all of the posts that you wish to quote checked, on the last one, push the "Reply With Quote" button itself and a window with all the multi-quotes will appear for you to enter your replie(s) in.
