Use the "Quote" button on top of the post for extracting the whole post to be quoted. Not sure how to do it extracting parts of a post...

You quote all, then delete the unnecessary.

Slobodan.  In the thread view there is a quote button at the far top right. In the reply text box view there is a quote button above the smily guy with sun glasses. In the Topic Summary there is an Insert Quote to the right of Posted by:

All of these place a long string of "computer speak." above and below the actual post.

Yes I could delete the useless strings. Even when I high light the text I get the same result.

Highlight the bits you want between the beginning of the quote "[quote author***]" and end of the quote "[/quote]"

To end up with something like this:

...All of these place a long string of "computer speak." above and below the actual post...

The message string will look similar to this (replace quite with quote):

[quite author=saiguy link=topic=121772.msg1013078#msg1013078 date=1511621366]...All of these place a long string of "computer speak." above and below the actual post...[/quite]

Let me illustrate the three different uses of "quote":

#1 "In the thread view there is a quote button at the far top right"

Clicking that button simply quotes the whole text. Then you can delete unnecessary strings, as I did above.

#2
"In the reply text box view there is a quote button above the smily guy with sun glasses"

I use that one when I am quoting something else, other than a forum member's post, e.g., a quote from a newspaper, or a favorite motto (this one is from a very smart guy)

Quote
When everybody thinks the same... nobody thinks.

#3 "In the Topic Summary there is an Insert Quote to the right of Posted by"

This one is useful if you want to quote somebody else's sentence from the same thread, for instance:

Beautiful....why didn't I think of that?!?!  :-)

The "computer speak" you talk about is only visible while you are composing a reply. To see the final version before posting, you click on the "preview" button.

Slobodan.  3 tries 3 failures. Used method 1. I get a quote box above the reply text entry. Am not able to edit in that box. Same text is in the reply text box and can be edited, shortened. I do not know how to exit from there and comment on the quote. The quote itself does not stick.

Let's try step by step:

Step 1 is just pressing the quote button from method 1.

Step 2 and 3 show you CAN edit at that stage: step 2 highlights a sentence, which is then deleted in step 3.

Now, one has to remember that we are in a "quick" reply mode, therefore not all editing options are available. For that, we need to click on the Preview button and then have the range of options in the form of icons.

WOW, Thank You.

At least you thought me how to skin a cat one way. The 3rd method. Seems to be the best method as you can grab from posts even days earlier.

Not very intuitive though

This would be the result of the proper "method 1, step 1." Click "Quote," click "Post." I am not sure what exactly you are doing.

OK, here's your full quote just above by pressing the "Quote" button.

Then I want to make it selective by deleting the last sentence, so I am only quoting the first sentence. I copy-paste the whole quote from above, then go in there, highlight the sentence I don't want to keep, and click delete on my keyboard:

This would be the result of the proper "method 1, step 1.

This works.

I hit the quote button. am now typing in the text box starting where the computer speak ends. Will what happens. Mark's copy/paste technique is some advanced thing.

OK I got it. I was editing out the computer speak earlier in the reply text box and maybe that was by problem.

Thank you both for caring, sharing, and patience.

I think when I edited the computer speak, deleting that stuff, I was deleting the Forum Apps pointers to the quote. That's why it was a no go.
