Help me out here. When you want to respond to someone's post , I know you click on the quote button and it shows the entire post. What if a person only wants to highlight a portion of the post, how do you do that? Does that make sense or about as clear as muddy water? Thanks!
Hi diane! I know it CAN be done, because I have seen it done elsewheres, and I have even had it explained to me before, but I am a "hands on" learner and do not do well with written instruction. Now wasn't I a big help? ;D

OK,you hit QUOTE. Then you go to what you DONT want and put your mouse there and left button down slide over the text you dont want.Release mouse button.Now what you want to delete will be covered with blue.Hit delete on your keyboard and it disappears.
Then just be sure to write your reply after the entire quoted area.
Make sense? Im a terrible computer teacher via the web.
There is also a quote button in the tool bar above the message you are writing. It looks like a piece of paper with an arrow pointing right. When you punch it you will get this:
1st, go to you message, and left click and drag the mouse over what you want to quote. this will hightlight it. Then right click, and hit copy. Start your new message and hit the quote button. Go in between the two quotes, and right click you mouse. Hit Paste, and there you go. EXAMPLE
Does that make sense or about as clear as muddy water? Thanks!
