Default How to write multi-quote replies?

Something i am struggling already for quite a while now.
I am a complete NOOB when it comes to using this forum efficiently.

How can i use the forum to efficiently create a multi-qouted reply in a thread?
A multi-quoted reply contains fragments of the original message, including the author and then i can respond to those fragments with my own text.

Right now, how i do this is I do Reply and get the quoted reply. But the reply contains the whole block of the previous messages quoted.
Then i start to play with deleting parts of that quoted part, and splitting it up by added and copying the author information into the new added [QUOTE] items.

But... Isn't there a faster way to do this? I am sure there is, but I haven't found that yet!

Pls help (also useful for others on this forum).

Hi Flight control

bottom right of each post you will see the multiquote button, when you depress it a tick appears

you do this for each post you wish to use as a quote in your own reply.

once you have selected them hit the new reply bottom left of the post, and it should include all of the posts you ticked

Thanks,

My question was a bit different. Is there an efficient way to quote individual sections of ONE post, including the author name.
So that multiple quotes would appear on the same post.
Then i could reply to each individual section.

I've seen some posts like that, where i see the previous post broken into individual pieces and replies are given on each piece.

If you mean something like this here, what i did, i just copy the quote tags around the sections i want, don't know if there's a better way

As razo+r has said, cut and paste is the solution.

Sometimes if I don't feel like copying and pasting all the quote codes, I just cut and paste the quote tag from the end of the original post to the end of the first section, and put all the other sections in quote tags. Maybe it's not what you want, with the name of the original poster on each section, but I think it's clear enough whom you are quoting. Like this:
