Quoting Text Pasted into a Message
 
When you want to quote something that you have cut and pasted into the middle of a post, look at the icons above the text field and find the "bubble" like the thing they use in comics to put the words of whoever is talking. It is between the # sign and the icon with the mountains and sun.

Quote:

Within your post, highlight the text you wish to quote, then click the quote-bubble icon. It really is that simple!
If you do not see a row of formatting icons with this symbol, click "Go Advanced" underneath the text field and you will see all the buttons.

You have to decide what's right for YOU, and start putting yourself first in your life.

Too true!

Sorry! Since the other thread is closed, I couldn't use the usual technique of quoting. But I wanted the quotes to stand out as quotes and not get confused with my comments on them. I thought that darker colours would be too close to black to make that plain.

Why do you want to get married now? I think this is a really important question.

100% in agreement. koifish: Pay special attention to the middle paragraph!

If you want to quote something, copy it to your clipboard, then click the little button at the top of the message field that is shaped like a quote bubble, then paste your quote between the bracketed portions

Quote:

like this
Alternatively, you can type {QUOTE} {/QUOTE} around what you want to quote, but instead of curly brackets, use straight brackets.

Thanks! Always learning... No more acid green (or green acid) for me!

Italics, bold, or underlining should be enough for emphasis. I usually find your multi-colored posts hard to read as well.

Be fair, nycindie! Aside from my signature, I have used coloured lettering on very few occasions in the past. On this occasion, I already explained my reason for extensive use of colour. Offered an alternative by Neonkaos, I have promised not to do so again.

And you sent me a PM in which you complained that my "Italics, bold, or underlining" were "hard to read". Now you advise them?

Well, judiciously, of course, and not necessarily all of them together! Nor throughout the whole post! My eyes go round and round in circles when there's too much!

Sorry, love. And sorry for continuing the highjack...

Ya, it's always super-groovy when folks read the user guidelines and forum features section of the forum. maybe if folks read this section, the moderators would get fewer emails like "WAH! I wrote something now I regret it! Delete my profile/these threads ASAP kthxbai".
