quote a paragraph

#1 Post by fastbob » Sun Dec 10, 2017 2:02 pm

How do I isolate one sentence or a paragraph when quoting part of others posts ? I am limited to a windows phone because I have no access to a PC . Thanks.

You mean like this?

You click the quote button then scroll up and delete the bits you want

Don't touch the parts in the brackets or delete the brackets

Feel free to quote this and play about with it then you're not messing other posts up :thumb:

You can do pretty much everything on a phone as you can on a pc its just a little fiddly at times
Don't steal!.... the government hates competition!!!
