Used to be, when I clicked "insert quote" I could see the quoted text surrounded by [ QUOTE ] [/ QUOTE] and then I could manipulate the quoted text (to cut out extraneous portions, etc.). Now, I see a Quote Box, and if I try to replace quoted text with ellipses, I get another text box...

How do I get to the "view" of the quoted text that used to be the default view??
