Highlighting & Quoting

edited July 2006 in The Sandbox
I may be late to the party on this, but if you highlight a portion of a post and then hit 'Quote', only the highlighted portion of the post is quoted.

Just thought I'd share with anyone else who's been editing down whole posts.

    It doesn't work that way for me. It still quotes the whole thing.

    What browser, OS, and version of browser and OS are you using?

    It works for me on Windows Vista with Firefox 2.0.0.6
  • And does anyone know why whitespaces disappear if their is formatting in the quoted text? Or, rather, how we can stop it from doing that?

    Switched over to Firefox and now it works.
  • Have you noticed if something is bolded or something is italicized and you quote that, the spaces around the styled text vanish?
