I have two questions:
1. When answering to message the forum participants frequently use the quotes facility, that copy previous message in the answer. Unfortunately this facility copy whole message. In order to limit citation to some particular part, I should remove undesired part manually. Is there some approach, that automatize this process for example highlight a particular part of previous answer, and than click on Quote - only highlighted part will be quoted ?
2. Half an hour ago after composing the answer (I spent for it about 20 min), I clicked on Post. Instead of confirmation, some service message appeared, informing me that the site is under maintenance. Is my answer completely loose, or there is some mean to restore it ?

Thank you for your questions. Following are some answers for you:
- If I am understanding your inquiry correctly, this is a manual cut and paste. Currently, this is no automation to this practice.
- I am sorry you were in the middle of answering a forums post while we had a system maintenance window. Since the community vendor is located in North America and maintenance windows are handled after hours here. But for our international users it is during your work day. Unfortunately, your post is not retrievable during system maintenance.

You can avoid some form submission-related rage by using a browser plugin that automatically saves what you've typed. There's one for Firefox called Lazarus: Form Recovery. There are probably others for your browser of choice.

Lazarus! What a wonderful name for a crash recovery app!

2. Search the forums (and search the web) for similar topics.
3. Do not post the same question on multiple forums.

8. I am not paid for forum posts. If I write a good post, then I have been good for nothing.
