Would occasionally find this useful. Seems rather wasteful if in a thread I want to reply to 2 or 3 messages for me to wirte 2 or 3 reples just because I can't work out how to do this. I have seen it done by others so it must be possible. I qould not be doing this often, before anybody gets worried about exorbitant quotes in a post.

I didn't want to put it in the original post, as it would have simply shown the words in between as a quote, which would have been even more confusing!

I know what you mean!

You could do this though:
