Maybe others have known about this feature for a while, but I just discovered it. If you want to just quote part of a post, you can click drag the text you want to copy, and a little "Quote+" box pops up next to the highlighted text! Pretty neat! :)

Or just highlight and "Reply". I'm still learning too. Many neat features.

Yeah one of my favorite features. I remember the old days where you had to sometimes quote a massive chunk of text and then manually in the editor crop it out.

btw, it also works with multiquote. So you can-select-to-quote many things and then insert them into the editor at the end.

Oh, wow! This is going to make my life so much simpler. I've been doing the quote/delete operation all along.

Or you can select-to-reply to several things, one by one, and they each get added to the editor as you go along. No need to "Insert Quotes" at the end.

The trouble is, if you have any latex in your click-drag selection it messes it up.

Testing...

$$i(t) = C \frac{dv(t)}{dt}$$

Testing... Hmm, even for simple stuff, some of the formatting is lost.
