Unhappy Multi Quote???

Okay you computer smart folks.

How does it work????

I click the button but for the life of me I can't figure out how to "quote" different posters in a single post.

Yes I'm a computer dummy and I like it that way. Please keep it simple.

But I would like to use the feature when I click a thread that has many points by different posters I'd like to respond to.

Click the "Multi" button for each post you want included in your reply (the + will change to a - for each one you select). Then when you are ready to write your reply, just click "Reply", or click "Quote" on the last post you want to include. All of the posts you clicked "Multi" for will be displayed in the in the Reply window in the order that you selected them.

If you change your mind, click the "Multi" button again and the - will change back to a + and it will be deselected.

Thanks so very much RPCookin.

Seems to work so far.

But I'm sure I'll figure out a way to screw it up.

When I do be sure to me.

RPCookin's instructions were spot on.

Zagut, one way I have mucked up multi-quote is by forgetting that I clicked it. It seems to me that I clicked multi-quote and forgot and didn't respond at all to the thread. Then, days later, when I did reply to the thread, there was a message about including the multi-quote. Had me scratching my head.

How about quoting segments of a post?
Lets say you want to reply to paragraphs or sentences individually from the same post?
I see it done, but I don't know how to do it. I want to know.
TIA.

Don't know if it's the right way, but I use the quote and then highlight and delete the words I don't want.

Those tags don't have to be pink. It is just to show what I did.

I do the same.... but it's important to leave entire ideas in tact when quoting - otherwise you might alter the intent of the post.

That's a valid point Janet.

I guess it's better to quote the whole post and color or bold the words you are addressing in your response.

Or if it's long and you only are only referring to a small portion, put an ellipsis (...) where you have removed part of the quote.
