Reply box open
Scroll to post you want a quote from
Select the text you want to quote
then “ from that post Go back to your reply box and magically the selected text is there and attributed.

You’ll get the same advice as you got in your earlier posting.

What sort of device are you using? I have a smartphone, I think it is different on other devices
Entertainer, intellectual, idealist, PoB, 30120
Cycling-of course, but it is far better on a Gillott
We love safety cameras, we hate bullies
