Inserting the quote of selected text as a reply is a useful feature, but appearance of the button typically used for this is annoying for selection readers, so one can opt-out it in preferences.
But how do I use “quote reply” feature without this button? Pressing “Reply” button at the bottom of the post opens empty reply without a quote. Clicking “Blockquote (Ctrl+Shift+9)” on toolbar does nothing.
I think “Blockquote” should mean “Quote reply” (i.e. insert quotation based on selected text above) when no text in the text area is selected.
