On a lot of boards if you select a portion of the text in a post you are replying to, only the selected text is included when you hit the Quote button to reply.  Would be a nice convenience if it's doable.

It works in the Quick Reply.  Highlight some text and click the "Quote" link.  You should see it down in the Quick Reply box.  In fact, you can keep selecting new text and clicking Quote each time to build out your quoted text.  Once you have all you wanted quoted, you can reply right there or click the Preview button to form your reply in the full reply page.

Quote
only the selected text is included when you hit the Quote button

+10 for that in the "quote" mechanism.  (I'll come around the other 9 times later on.)

As a follow-up, this no longer seems to work.  Tried it in both Chrome and Firefox.  Also when I do a Quote it seems all I can get is Quick Reply. I don't see any button to switch to Advanced mode.

Works here. Firefox 3.6.3. Clicking Preview will switch to "advanced" (full editor) mode.

Works for me IF I have the "look and layout" options in my profile preferences set to
Use quick reply on topic display: show, off by default.
That allows me to quote part of a line.

Quoting was erratic when I had it set to "don't show at all",  or "show, on by default" .

I looked in preferences and didn't see it, prolly cuz it wasn't in the check box list. Now I have it!  Thanks. smiley

it only works erratically here, no matter which setting (also FF 3.6.6)
it will work for a while and then not - no obvious logic to it...

Doesn't work for me at all in Chrome, even if I disable AutoCopy.
