Gmail recently released a new UI for compose. How do you manually quote a paragraph? The block-quote button seems to have disappeared from the formatting toolbar in the rich text compose editor.
Turns out the quote button is buried inside the align menu on the formatting toolbar. When you click Align, a submenu pops up with a few options for indentation and quoting, in addition to text justification.
To quote, you can also select the text and use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+9 on Windows and Cmd+Shift+9 on OS X.
This shortcut works only in rich text mode.
