    Seems like I've done this successfully before but recently have had problems. If I click on "Quote" only, no response box opens up so I don't know where to type. If I used "Quote in Conversation." the response box opens up but the only two options are Start a New Conversation or something else that doesn't help me. What am I doing wrong? I have resorted to simply hitting Quote in Conversation and copying all of that to a normal response.

    If you just want part of a post, highlight it and hit the Reply option in the black box above it which will carry over the poster's info.

    Follow up question. How do you do a multi-part quote? For example, if I wanted to respond to several points in a post without quoting the whole thing, how do I break it up into multiple quotes in a single post?

    That's a little more involved.

    Do the first one like I explained in my 1st post above. Then copy/paste the next next etc. except you will lose the attribution/link o the OP and may have to manually add the quote tags depending on how you browse SB

    examples in the quote section here: BB codes

    I believe you can also highlight a section of text and hit Quote. It should say added to Multi=quote each time you do. When you're done hit Reply and they should all be displayed in an edit window so you can add your comments.

    At least I think that's how it works. don't use it often.

    Ah, ok. Cool, thanks! Seems to work pretty well, just takes some editing to get it to display right.
