Quoting a members comment in thread

I'm sure this has been asked and answered multiple times, and I've scrolled through looking for the answer without success. Admittedly I'm new to the forum, and far from the most computer savvy person around.

The question. When having a conversation with members within a specific thread, how do you quote a members comment to respond directly to thier question or statement?

Thanks in advance!

Hit the little blue quote box in the lower right corner of their post.

The box immediately to the right of the quote box is for when you want to multi-quote. Meaning there are two (or more) posts that you want to quote in your response.

The method is to use the "multi-quote" first for as many posts as you want quoted, minus one, and then use "quote" on the last one.

One more tip - you don't have to quote a complete post. Before you hit "reply" for your post, you can edit the quoted posts by bolding, or underlining the important parts and deleting the extraneous portions. Also, if you're quoting a post with pictures in it, unless the photos are important to your comments, please delete the photos in your reply. It makes reading your reply easier & quicker.

This was a very helpful piece of instruction. Thank you! I've save it to my notes to look back at if needed in the future.

Never show a pilot a red button/knob/lever/handle or switch! We will eventually just have to try it out!
