Pasting a Quote Question

I just figured out how to use the Quote button to paste comments (framed by the gray background) from another poster into a reply that I would make.

My question is this: Is it possible to somehow paste only a portion of the other poster's comments? If so, how? I tried highlighting a couple of sentences and then hitting the quote button but the whole post still got transferred.

Or, does the other person's whole post get pasted regardless?

I high-lite the section that I want to quote - and "copy" it. Then in my reply I press the quotes button and then "paste" what I had copied in between the quote marks. It might not be the best way - but it works for me. Maybe someone else will have a better suggestion.

You just delete the sentence you do not want to use.
