Topic: partial quoting

How do you normally quote just part of a message in a reply? If I select just part of a message and press >, it quotes the entire message. Do I just need to manually edit the quoted text?

That's what I've been doing, yeah

For short quotes I just copy paste and prefix with >

That doesn't give a citation link, though (which is useful when quoting back more than one line).

Ideally it would quote only the selected part of a post when you press >.

That would be helpful, yeah.

Yeah, it'd be nice if it were more like GitHub that way.

the linkifier will link this to the rust issue with the same id, so here's the zulip issue to follow https://github.com/zulip/zulip/issues/19712

Oops, thanks! I'm too used to the linkifiers on chat.zulip.org. :embarrassed:
