Double quoting

Postby Conireland » Wed Nov 19, 2008 9:28 pm

Is it possible to 'double quote' ie. quote two different people in the same post and if so, how do you do it?

I think you would quote the first one, drop it in your new message and then go back and repeat the proceedure, finally adding your comment and post your message

Find first quote and right click text and highlight; press copy. Exit back to thread - Find second quote and then paste your first quoted text below. You should then have two seperate quotes which you can then answer in one posting.

Even simpler is to prepare your response in a Word document by copying and pasting each quote - adding your own text - checking for spelling, grammar etc and then copying into your message.
