Follow the Steps to Quote on Reddit

Alan Anthony Catantan

Fortunately, it’s quite easy to use the quote on Reddit.

Here’s the step-by-step instruction on how to quote on Reddit:

  1. First off, open Reddit in your browser. To read the instruction here while doing them, use Stack. It will allow you to view both websites side-by-side without the hassle of resizing your current window.
  2. After that, find a post where you want to leave a quote. (To open a post, click on its title and you will be able to view the whole post as well as all the comments others have left.)
  3. The next step is to find a comment that you want to include in your post. Note that this is the comment that you want to quote. Scroll down and find that comment.
  4. Once you found it, select the section (or the whole quote, if you want) by clicking and dragging the mouse cursor across the comment (or its section).
  5. Then, copy the selection (the whole comment or the parts that you have selected). You can right-click on it and select copy or you can use keyboard shortcuts by pressing “Control + C” on Windows or “Command + C” on Mac.
  6. To quote it, go back to the text box and click the quote icon, which is represented by a double quote icon. This will create a quote block on the text block, which would then have a vertical gray line within the text box.
  7. Paste the selection you copied earlier by pressing the keyboard shortcut “Control + V” on Windows or “Command + C” on Mac. You should now see the copied quote in the text box.
  8. To close the quote block, press “Enter” to proceed to the next line and press the “Backspace” key. That’s it! You can now add your own response or comment to the comment.
