Multi-quote is for quoting multiple posts. If that is your goal, you click the Multi-quote buttons on each post you want to quote, then you click the Add Reply
button at the top like you would if you just wanted to reply a thread without quoting. It will insert quotes for each of the posts you tagged.
If you are wanting to simply break a long post into smaller quotes and respond to each separately but in the same post, the easiest thing to do to click the Quote
button in the post you want to quote and then manually add the [QUOTE]
bbcode tags around the areas you wish to quote and reply.
