Default How to make a copy of a post

For those of you who want/need to make a copy of a post. Put your pointer on the post # at the top of the post. Such as post #1 Post #2 etc. Every once in a while I want to copy a post for my notebook.

Well, that is kind'a cool, but then what do you do with it? The only advantage I see over "hi-lite, copy, paste" is that you capture the originator and timeline info. DD

To make a copy, after the post selected is diplayed just hit CTRL/P
to print it.

while we're in school, how do you quote a previous statement in your new post?

I guess you could copy and paste the desired quote as part of your reply.

Like this: Then add quotation marks and change the font color for effect.
"while we're in school, how do you quote a previous statement in your new post?"

for a bunch of old farts you guys are sure computer savvy! i can copy n paste, never tied it here because i goofed around with the quote button at the bottom, which i would guess if you knew how to do it, it would be easier or it wouldnt be there. i guess if i cant quote it might help keep me from getting in trouble around here!

I live in a PC world, and know nothing about Apple products. Ctrl/C and Ctrl/V are standard PC keypad commands for copy and paste. They used V for paste because P was used for print.

I RIGHT CLICK for COPY or PASTE after hi-lighting. Gotta agree with 19FORDY's simplistic method. DD

LOL, $300 is more that a fairly good PC laptop cost new! Mac's must really hold their value. I redid my current desktop for around $100 and it runs with the big dogs.

A few years back I learned about the snipping tool. Pretty convenient as you outline whatever you want to save that you see on your screen.
