    I have had numerous people ask me how to quote part of the post without quoting the whole darn thing. PRetty simple.

    Right above the dialog square box where you type, there are a lot of symbols. One is the # symbol. To the left you will see a balloon symbol like the one shown below.

    What you want to do is the following.

    the part you want to quote, highlight it using the mouse and right click the highlighted area. then click copy. Then go to the dialog box, click the balloon, and you will see this

    Now, as you can see, I highlighted the photo, and quoted it here using the instructions listed.

    I hope that helps.

    I will hit the "quote" tab, then usually just use the "Backspace" key between the [quotes] and delete the parts I don't want to use. I'm just a dumb truck driver too.:raspberry-tounge:

    I usually just copy & paste the portion of the post I want to use and just put quotation marks before & after.

    I'm with you. I hit the quote button and then delete the parts that I don't want to quote. By far the easiest way.

    I'm great at hitting the delete key. I would of been banned years ago if it I wasn't. Sometimes emotions get ahead of the ol brain so the delete key gets priority over the submit key:happy2:
