Quote to Clipboard in Locked or Unlocked Topics

Recommended Posts

OrionSR

I regularly struggle to quote messages as a reference to another topic. Frequently the referenced topics are locked for archival purposes and no quote option is available. In this situation, it would be useful if the quote options would provide a strategy for copying the text to the clipboard, complete with all the formatting, poster info and links to the original post - just like a normal quote within a topic. 

 

For unlocked topics, it would still be useful to have a quote to clipboard option but it isn't all that difficult to start a reply, copy the quote, cancel the reply, and paste the quote into another topic. But if the quote to clipboard idea is worthy of consideration, perhaps an elegant solution that works across all topics and platforms will present itself.

Just Copy & Paste the quote that's what I do

 

while you won't have the full text box you can just do it like this...
