    OK, maybe I'm to old but this function eludes me. I'm sure it's been asked before..... How does one extract a sentence from a paragraph and have it appear in the balloon highlight? I asked others here but they did not know either.

    The whole post will appear within two sorts of brackets like this: [Q U O T E=*USER*;*POST NO.*] *TEXT* [/ Q U O T E]

    To extract a certain sentance or word etc, do it like this:
    Say you want the number 2, but not the number 1 out of a post simply containing '1 2'. It will appear as follows:
    [Q U O T E=*USER*;*POST NO.*]1 2[/Q U O T E]
    To get '2' on it's own, you'd do this:
    [Q U O T E=*USER*;*POST NO.*]2[/ Q U O T E]

    So you just simply delete whatever you don't want, leaving the [QUOTE] brackets either side. I hope this helps.

    *Please ignore the spaces in the [QUOTE] brackets in the example, I had to put them there otherwise the post actually contained a Quote bubble in my example! Obviously when leaving a quote, there's no spaces!*

      JonathonP posted the answer while I was writing this, but here it is anyway.
      The simple way to this is to click on "Reply With Quote". This will insert the entire post in the quote box at the top of your reply. It will look like this in the editor

      If you just want to include just a fragment of the post in the quote box, then edit the inserted text:

      [QUOTE=Twiggybush;331158]How does one extract a sentence from a paragraph and have it appear in the balloon highlight? [/QUOTE]

      The mechanism for creating these posts are BBCode tags. The pattern for enclosing comments in the quote box is [QUOTE]content[/QUOTE]
      Knowing this, you can then copy the inserted bbcode block multiple times and split the quote up. For example entering this in the editor:


      [QUOTE=Twiggybush;331158]OK, maybe I'm to old but this function eludes me.[/QUOTE]

      No you're never too old.

      [QUOTE=Twiggybush;331158] How does one extract a sentence from a paragraph and have it appear in the balloon highlight? [/QUOTE]
      Now you know.

      [QUOTE=Twiggybush;331158] I asked others here but they did not know either.[/QUOTE]
      They can now come to you for the answer!

        You can also quote from multiple posts by clicking the "+ icon on those posts you wish to quote in your reply, then clicking Reply With Quote. Note that clicking on the little blue box adjacent the posters name in the quote box takes you to the post being quoted. For example:

                    Roger,

                    Think of the text in brackets [] as switches: The [TEXT] switch turns it on, and the [/TEXT] switch turns it off. Examples of this are below (but included in parenthesis--otherwise they wouldn't show).
                    • (B)(/B), you can do the same for Italic and Underline.
                    • (LIST)(/LIST) for bulleted lists, and use (*)just before each new list item.
                    • (LIST=1)(/LIST) for numbered lists.
                    • (SUP)(/SUP) for superscript, and the one you've been trying to figure out
                    • (QUOTE)(/QUOTE) to quote someone else's words. Everything that appears after the word QUOTE (i.e. usernames and post numbers) can be eliminated if you wish--it's just referring to that specific post within a thread.
                    Hope that helps.

                      Thanks Michael !
                      I appreciate your trying to help. I have no idea why I'm having so much trouble "getting" this. I fully understand quadratic equations and the nuances of variants in the manufacture of tetra potassium pyrophosphate and n-alkyl dimethyl ammonium chloride! So.... I'm trying (in this post) to put your comment "Hope that helps." into a balloon.

                        Roger,

                        Sorry about that. Sometimes I tend to throw the entire ball of wax at people--sorry.

                        I'm going to type what you were trying to quote below, and just above it, I'll put EXACTLY what I quoted, but using parenthesis() instead of brackets[].

                        (QUOTE)Hope that helps.(/QUOTE)
                        Hope that helps.
                        Remember to change the parenthesis to brackets.

                            I hate to inform you, but I think it's because you've been spending too much time with ye ol' Hammonds. It's addled yer brains!

                            Seriously, though, I may be on the verge of getting a Hammond spinet, and may be calling in that favor after all! I'll keep you posted. Glad to have been of help.

                            Michael

                            P.S. Now, about your signature.... Surely, that means something to someone?!

                              This is the very first time I have ever clicked on "reply with quote" in all the years I've been on this forum. I guess I never really knew what it was for until I ran across this discussion. If you see a quote in a balloon above this text, then it must have worked.
