I've worked with RTE quite a bit and found *one* way to break a long Quote for specific answers to each section of the Quote:
Separating a Quote for Individual Responses in Rich Text Editor (RTE)
(Revised 9/20/13 to cover other op systems.)
RTE isn't as easy as BBCode to separate a long or complicated Quote so you can respond to individual comments. However, I did find *one* fairly easy way to do that:
- Right-click or highlight some text in a Quote block and select "Remove div." This unformats that entire Quote block so it becomes normal text.
- Highlight one or more entire paragraphs you want to respond to and click the Quote icon ("), which reapplies all Quote formatting to that highlighted text. It also gives you space below to respond normally. I recommend including the top line "Originally posted by xxx" in the 1st quoted section so people know who you're quoting and can use the link in that line to easily find the original quoted post (for various reasons)!
- Add your comments below each section individually and clean up any leftover text or spacing boo-boos.
For numbered or bulleted LISTS, it works best if you highlight entire list with intro para. That keeps list numbering intact. Highlighting individual LIST items becomes problematic since it can change them to plain text or numbers to bullets, etc., which might not be OK for quote purposes... and could be difficult to recover from. In that case, Ctrl/Cmd+Z (Undo) and Ctrl/Cmd+Y (Redo) are your friends!In that case, Ctrl/Cmd+Z (Undo) and Ctrl/Cmd+Y (Redo) are your friends!
