Do you mean the bit in the box as above...now I really am gonna feel dumb if this goes pear shaped.

Thanks Gareth and Max. I'll have a go, but I think glass blowing is a lot less tricky.  :lol:


In your first 'quote' you actually put a backslash, that is / before the word 'quote'.  It didn't work because this is how you *close* a quote.  If you just put the word quote in square brackets *before* what you are quoting and backslash quote, that is /quote, in square brackets *after* the words you are quoting, it comes out as above.  

You can just click on the quote option in the previous message and write your words underneath what appears, or you can insert  'square brackets backslash quote' part of the way through, insert your own words and then put 'square brackets quote' again to continue the words in the previous message.  

Just remember to always open a quote like this {quote} and close it like this {/quote} except that the brackets should be the square ones, of course.  I can't actually do it to show you, 'cos if I do it just inserts a quote!  

Hope that's not too complicated!   :shock:

could it be a mac thing? I'll try again tomorrow


No Adam, (show off  :lol: )

It is not the quote button in the reply form. Instead of using 'Reply' hit the quote button in the list ing display for the message you want to quote. Pheeeww what a lot of words .... just lift your eyes a little bit from HERE look to the right and then click quote... You are now reading my message in a reply message window.

You type your response after the last [ / quote ] command.

I expect to this message in a neat white box...NOW

I find it easier to just use "Post Reply", then locate any text I wish to quote from a previous message (in the "Topic Review" window below this Posting one) and highlight and copy it (just like in a wordprocessor application, using the mouse).

I then paste it into my reply text wherever I need it.

After that, I highlight the pasted text (again with standard mouse operation) and just click once on the "Quote" button at the top of the Posting window - that adds the opening and closing "tags" without me having to worry about syntax and so forth.

This method works well for quoting several pieces of text from various previous responses.

You might not be 'a thicko' Gareth.  I've posted pics straight into a thread before, and couldn't tonight.  Couldn't work out why.

I'm not sure I'm the right person to ask Mick   :lol:  If you have a paperweight you'd like to discuss, please start a new topic in the Paperweight section and upload a photo (the way to do it is at the top of that section).  I'm sure someone will help you.   :D
