    you mean a quote from someone in this forum or just copying and pasting?

    well, If im correct on what you want, highlight the text to copy with your mouse, once you do this press CTRL + C.

    now point the place you want to paste the text and just press CTRL + V

    im still not sure if that helped :confused:

    Offtopic: the G string on the atk is giving me trouble lately :(, but I dont play that string as much... did you repaired it?

    Or are you talking about quoting like this?

    Sorry but you´re not very clear on what you want. If this is what you are looking for, then press the Quote button on top of each message.

    1. Find the message you want to quote.
    2. Press the "Quote" button which is above that message. (in the middle of buddy - edit/delete buttons).
    3. Voila!

    On quoting multiple messages, I just quote the first one with the button. Then I scroll down and copy whatever else I want to quote and I paste it in my message. Then I manually quote it. That is I put the quote command around the message.
    Example:
    [.Quote]This is a message I want to quote[./quote]

    Note: Take out the dots in front of Quote and then you have it.
    To make it look like a real quote, I also throw in [.B]Bold[./B] Also take the dots out here.

    Final example with manual quote:

    [.Quote][.B]This is a quote[./Quote][./B]

    Hope this helps.
     

  7. Like this? Wow cool ! that was too easy...

    Icez, Thank you soo much.....
