    Doesn't work on my Mac, either. I have to go through all the quotes and carefully delete the ones I don't want to include in my post.

    But it's worth it. The resulting post is cleaner and easier to read.

    I have an android.

    Just hold your finger tip over one of the words until the word is highlighted and has those two blue "handles." Drag the handles with your fingertip over the words you want to quote, then release. Quote and reply will pop up under the highlighted text. Hit reply. The text and the author will be all you'll quote.

    Here's a vid for iphone. Pretty similar.

    I can highlight (as you say) but when I hit reply (near highlight, or big reply button) nothing happens? same for quotes?

    I can highlight/copy to clipboard. But then I lose sender.

    Color, highlight, text size...never seems to work on this thing?

    Maybe this one is older bad OS? It is not a phone. Phone is so small? All touch screens are touchy and fat finger issues too. No where to scroll. And I am lazy. I don't want to learn or work at this thing. See I can copy...."Drag the handles with your fingertip over"......

    Also, to Monk. Sometimes "they" complain if you only pull parts of a post.

    I always put quotes in italics with quotation marks, add spacing and give a link when appropriate.

    I think Dark Fury should address this issue in his law suit. :)

    The Board is too small, how can I enlarge it enough to read?

    That's true.

    But I'll continue quoting only the sentence or paragraph I'm addressing in a reply because it makes it so much easier to follow the 'conversation'.

    It cleans up the board immediately when people edit quoted material rather than including multiple quotes and loads of irrelevant material

    I think everyone has been annoyed by this system. No other forum I’ve been on has this antiquated method.
    But the mods are as anal as can be with everything that happens here.
    Don’t expect any changes or improvements.

    Try Holding down the CTRL Key and scroll the mouse wheel. Works on mine.
