not sure if this is an Editor issue or a bug or whatever... or if this is just perfectly fine, but this just happened:


reproduction-process:

1)
enter some text into your "quick reply box" at the bottom of a thread.

2)
mark a portion of that text with your mouse, so that the text is marked blue.

3)
now click onto the Reply-Link to "quote" the previous post ("quote" the post which is above your "quick reply box").

4)
the marked text in your "quick reply box" disappears.

:cautious:

Ummm... that's because you're just highlighting it with your mouse... for if you want to delete it, or copy it .. or bold, italic etc etc etc . . . so by clicking reply, you're telling the browser to delete the highlighted text and replace it with the quoted text via reply
