    How do I separate parts of a Quote to answer each part separately?
    I couldn't find 'Operations'.

    Use the tags [noparse]
    to enclose each part that you want to respond to. For example, typing the following...

    [noparse]
    Your first response.
    [noparse]
    Your second response.

    ...will look like this:

    Your first response.
    Your second response.

    Note, the initial [noparse]"
    " are automatically inserted when you click the Quote button [PLAIN]https://www.physicsforums.com/Prime/buttons/quote.gif [Broken] under the message you are responding to.

    and you can do that by clicking the quote icon (3 to the left of the X2 icon) just above the Reply box :wink:

    Thanks, Redbelly, for that help. Now a new question: How do I quote a post while including a quote included in that post?

    To my knowledge, there is no standard way to do that. Whenever I want to retain nested quotes, I select and copy the text within the internal quote, then paste it in the reply, adding quote tags around it. If the nested quote is from another post in the thread, I use the multiquote button, then rearrange things in the reply box.
