Gif of "quote reply" action?

(Nicholas Chammas) #1

Does anyone have a gif handy that shows the “quote reply” action?

You drag your mouse to select some text, the “quote reply” button shows up, you hit it, and up pops a composition window with the quoted section. You start typing your response.

I’m trying to show someone how Discourse does that without having to ask them to pop open and do it.

Hoho, very nice! :+1:

How did you make that, if you don’t mind my asking? I tried using this OS X app called Capture Mate, but it didn’t work too well for me.

I’m not sure what could be used for OS X (but I thought QuickTime had screen recording ability), but I use ScreenToGif on Windows. On Linux I use SilentCast

Thanks for the tips. I’ll take a look at QuickTime the next time I need to do this.

Thanks again for the gif!

I use this all the time. Chrome. It’s amazing.


CloudApp is also a great OS X tool for screencaps/recordings, and they have a fairly generous free plan:
