The Gmail web client used to have a "lab" feature called Quote Selected Text. It seems to be gone. Is there any way to get back that functionality?
When enabled, it allowed me to highlight a bunch of text in a message I was reading. Then when I hit reply, just the highlighted text was included in my reply message, not the whole message buried in the [...] item.
I know it's not for everyone, but I really liked this feature. It allowed me to respond to emails in a style like this, which was easier to read than the usual chain of included messages.
What happened to Quote Selected Text?
I don't know, I'll try to find out.
Did the Gmail team say anything about getting rid of the feature?
If so, I didn't hear about it.
