I've only just discovered that quoted sections do not show up in "Threaded" view.
If someone posts a long list of questions, I'll often manually quote the different sections so I can reply to them individually. Relache just posted a quote which didn't show up and caused total confusion.
Is there a way that manual quotes can be made to show up in the threaded view?
It could get pretty confusing to the various threads to post it multiple times under the various threads.
I think the best way is to ether reply with an answer that pertains to a specific thread, or if you do a multi quote, break the threaded view. Although, this isn't perfect, but it works OK in chronological view.
So if I start a new forum thread, and I need to manually quote something someone said that was not in any forum thread, I should just not use the actual quote tag to quote it because that's how the forum works best for all users.
I'd just get rid of the Threaded View option altogether. Failing that, make Chronological View the default, if it isn't already
Sometimes I manually copy what I want to quote and italicize it to distinguish it from the text of my response.

After much suffering with the new forums format, and observing and analyzing, I came to the conclusion that it is possible to have my cake and eat it, too - if HP developers will cooperate.The problem: Replies made in threaded view look absolutely unconnected in chronological view, up to the point...

What a poster set to Chrono posts is not always what a reader set to Threaded sees. And vice-versa for all I know. In other words, I'll bet there have been lots of miscommunications where both sides end up being undeserving victims. To see a perfect example of this, click the forum link below and...

I view the forums in Chronological mode and always import and edit the quote I'm replying to. Because I do that, I didn't think it was necessary to mention the name of the person I'm responding to. However recently, I've had a couple of misunderstandings where people thought I was...
