hi .... i have seen other ranchers giving while giving reply to other post..they quote some part of that and then give its reply

my question is how they just quote a particular part of the post they are replying....

though there is reply with quotes link there on reply page....

but when i click it i quotes the whole reply...
thats i know....

so is there is any other way that ppl used to give quote on only smaaller part of the post ??

or they just delete the portion from the original one and it appears that they have quoted smaller portion of originall one

if there is any short cut that ranchers use ...pls let me know

i have seen that they have quoted many times different smaller section of the original post...so they do paste original post with quotes and delete the unecessary portion....

hope that i will recieve the reply...with quotes

Ben, Good answer

Amit,
Other than deleting from the quoted text, we sometimes copy/paste the text and use the UBB quote tag by hand. That's what I did here because I was replying to multiple people. Both methods are fine and the one Ben showed is more common.
