How do you use the quote button in DW?

In Sutta Central when I highlight a sentence it shows the "quote symbol.
How to use the same function in DW?

I dont think you can. The two closest approaches are to...

1. Quote a post and edit out the extraneous information

Or...

2. Copy and paste the required tract of text into a new post, highlight it and press the quote button.

The latter option may be quicker, but it won't retain the author name of other meta-data, which you can add in manually if you want.

Metta,
Paul. :)
