When replying to posts with quotes in the 'go advanced' option how do L select a particular phrase or sentence to which I wish to reply :confused:
i.e. just to have a part of the post encircled & quoted & not the whole thing.


Sorry, it's not very clear, thanks for your help folks.

First option is to copy/paste the text and wrap it with quote code

Second is to quote the full post and manually remove the unwanted bits. You sometimes see people use the text bit <snip>, to mark they removed a noticable amount of text.

Third is to put an emphasis in the quoted post. I made the most important bit from your post bold.

Let's say that the red highlighted bits are what you want rid of ~ highlight and delete the first section and then do the same for the second. You should now have:

Hope that helps.
