As of about two weeks ago, I can no longer quote from a TR the same way I used to.  When I highlight the alphanumeric string that represents an image and hit "quote selected text," it pops in the way it used to for a fraction of a second, but then the entire message body I am working on goes blank, including the text I already typed in.  I am sure that I am doing it the say way I used to when it worked just fine.  Any thoughts on what is happening?

Yeah, the "quote" function hasn't worked like it used to for quite a while.  Sometimes I can fumble around and make it work, but I sure can't recall the right sequence of fumbling to help you.  I usually just find it easier to cut/paste the contents of a text document I created whose only content is a pair of quote tags, then cut/past the text I want to quote within the tags.  I named my document "quote".

Helps a developer to know what browser and version you are using!

Microsoft Edge/Windows 10.  I have not changed anything on my computer that would coincide with this.  Thanks!

Never worked for me reliably, I would just quote the whole post and edit down the quote. iOS 10.3.2 safari,android,  or Firefox.

Hopefully fixed.  Seems limited to certain browsers.  Must have been a bug for a long time and nobody said anything. clown.gif
