    I see that the multi-quote function is still there, but I don't guess I know the procedure to make it work. Also, how do I pick threads to be watched? Thanks!

    In the text box at the bottom "insert quotes", bottom left.


    If you quoted multiple things and changed your mind, it gives you ability to 'remove' before pasting.

    #45 Check this post out if y'all haven't.

    Highlight text and you get the quote feature.

    Really no more steps than old version, just different. And the "highlight" feature is awesome.

    The "highlight" function is really awesome for sure.

    Sweet! Love being able to select only the line I want to quote- a real time saver.
    Thanks for the tip.

    Two additional steps for each multiquote.

    Previously, if you were quoting, say, two posts, you'd click on multiquote in the first and reply to the second.

    Now it's +Quote for each post, then click on "Insert quotes" then confirm in the pop-up. Cumbersome as hell compared to the old way! :cool:

    There's also another way to multi-quote.

    I've noticed that you can hit reply to multiple posts and they'll end up in your post box.
