how to Quote? from previous post

Hope quote is the correct term. I see lots of posts with pix/text from a previous post. How do you do that?

Please forgive me if this is a stoopid question or the answer is right under my nose. I tried looking first, really I did.

Read this, real hard. Then look to the bottom right corner. You'll figure it out. If not, repeat as necessary.

Ah, I knew if I couldn't find it it must be really obvious. Thank you for your help and thank you for being gentle.

You can also edit out parts of the post you're quoting. Like so:

Or use the (QUOTE)insert text here (/QUOTE) tags to quote whatever you want. Replace the parentheses with brackets.

Looks like this:

Sorry, but I must be,...

Please walk me though this procedure. I'm trying but can't get it to work. When I try to quote a paragraph I get the whole post. Can't figure out what key? sequence? magic button?

Thank you for your patience.

That button is just a selector. Click it in each post you want to be quoting. Open "new reply" and the qoutes should already be loaded for you.
