OK, I started to do a Reply with multiple quotes in a thread about pictures in the marketplace. After reading the quotes and my post I decided that my input added very little to the thread so I cancelled.

I started to reply to a different post in a different thread. All my MQ's were still there.

I went to the AMASS Forum to start a new thread

Look --- here they are again.

How do I get rid of them? Other than making a post (like this) that uses them.

Mine doesn't take pictures. And it wouldn't hurt to quote the post that you're answering?

He didn't say that he couldn't take a picture of a camera. He simply asked how one would do so. Asking a question is very, very different than making a blanket, absolute statement.

It is wise not to read anything in to what someone says. If you infer anything beyond the actual words that were used, it leaves the possibility that you are inferring inaccurately. Best to go only by the actual words they used, and not by what you think they meant.

There is another thread about the persistent quotes. I replied there with this post

Nobody replied yet. Perhaps it helps to you ...

That does help thanks.

I did a search for multiple quotes and a couple of other strings but didn't find anything. Turns out this one was under "Replies".

So is this a bug or a feature?

I would think that once I cancel a Reply or an MQ, the associated MQs or quotes should be deleted.

But I'm sure Pekka has more important things to work on.

Thanks again

I agree.

I am constantly starting to write posts (with multiple quotes), then I change my mind and cancel. Then when I want to reply to another thread those dang quotes are still popping up. Makes it very difficult and confusing, especially when I want to use multiple quotes in the new thread and it brings in all of the quotes from the previous one too - I actually have to focus my attention and read thru all of the quotes in order to sort out which ones are just "leftovers" and which ones I want to use in the current thread that I am responding to.

I don't know how to get rid of the quotes with one easy click, and that is driving me crazy!

.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Tom, you can get rid of all the quotes with one click by clicking on the left of the two little arrows in the text editor. You know, the "undo" and "redo" arrows.

I guess my thought is this.

Currently its default to keep them. And you can manually choose to delete them.

Personally, if I stop creating a Multi-Quote response, I would rather it :

1 - default to fresh (empty) quotes if I start an MQ (or Quote or Reply) on a different thread. If I wanted to migrate Quotes from a different thread I can resurrect them with the arrow keys.

2 - bring back the old quotes if I start an MQ on the same thread. I can use the arrow keys to delete them if I so wish.

3 - A Reply or Single Quote on any thread never brings the MQs back.

I expected to be able to clear these quotes using Unfinished Replies in the FYEO section, but nothing for them was there.
