I think it's more often that people quote the full post and the remove the parts they don't want, no?Here's something I'm used to doing on my other forum platform.
Upon highlighting a section of someone's post text and clicking Reply, just that highlighted text becomes quoted, not the entire message.
Thus taking considerable labour out of quoting when sections of the post need snipping out.

True, but only by past design and there has been no other way.I think it's more often that people quote the full post and the remove the parts they don't want, no?
Great idea.***Migration, would go CS via vB3x using its CS importer - then from vB3x to XF (***don't quote me, that's just the last I heard going back a while now).
Oh darn. I figured 2.1...it may, repeat "may" pull the vital stuff like posts/threads if you're 100% desperate to move.Great idea.
Except vB Impex doesn't support CS 2007.
It supports my version of CS (2.1?).
And even that doesn't work well
The main concern I'd have about it is the unrepresentable BB codes, such as quote or media tags. The ideal would be to try to reverse the selected text back to the portion of the raw post that it covers, that'd be awesome... but I don't even know how to approach it.
Agree it would be a cool feature if we can come up with rational ways to handle those cases.
There has passed half a year. Certainly, would be remarkable to have fast citing with preserved formatting, but what is the time still to wait for at least usual citing! Millions users have got used to that it is possible to quote quickly. Make a simple variant, please, better just in 1.1 release, and as for perfect one - when there will be time.It's something I've been playing with, but there is no generally agreed format for addressing the selection within a document, so this kind of feature tends to be extremely fragile.
