Duplicate Advanced Quoting Options Such as Quoting Only Part of a Post

    I would like to suggest advanced quoting options including:

    1. The ability to view and edit the quoted text while replying. In a debate thread, for example, it's not uncommon for a member to quote parts of the post in pieces and reply to each individually. It appears that with xF it's all or nothing, without the ability to quote a post in pieces. This really limits the potential of the quote function here.

    2. The ability to multi quote, combined with suggestion #1.

    Both of these have already been suggested.

    When I get the chance I'll link to the suggestion threads.

    Edit: It appears that BOTH of these are already built into xF. Clicking reply didn't work for me on another thread, which spurred me to create this one. However, I see now that both of these are there, and working quite well might I add! Please disregard this request.

    Multi quote is currently only possible with posts on the same page though.

    Am I not understanding these functions then? It appears that both of these are actually already implemented. I tested it now. For example, an edited quote:

    And then, clicking Reply on your post again essentially does a multiquote.

    Works enough for me at least. :)

    All good then :)

    (Although I did slightly misinterpret your suggestion ;))

    So it's like you quote the same messages couple of times and delete out stuff you don't need in each quote?
