    Quotes

    Discussion in 'The Art of Critique' started by riverbank, Jul 14, 2011.

    Hi members

    I don't know why it is not obvious to me, but how do I quote a single line, clause, sentence word etc. of someone's work to comment.

    I know when you review the whole work is given as a quote, but how do you zero in and isolate passages?

    Thanks for your help

    Use copy and paste and the [NOPARSE]
    [/NOPARSE]tag to enclose what you want to quote, and it will come out like this:
    The icon that looks like a comic book speech bubble, above the edit area, inserts the [NOPARSE][/NOPARSE] tag around text selected in your edit area.
