Yes, but that either requires the user to either quote the entire dev diary (including images), then cut away the parts you don't want to use. Another alternative is to copy/paste one section at a time, but that does not add the reference to the original post. With the partial quote functionality you can quote each specific section of a post as you read, without having to go to the bottom of the page for each section you want to quote, or having to cut away some sections (including bb code for images). The built in partial quote functionality which could be used with the old dev diary format (and with any normal forum post) therefore had both superior functionality, and it was a lot easier to use (especially on phones where cutting away the correct sections are a lot mlre difficult due to the limited display space). All the possible workarounds are just worse from a user point of view.AFAIK, you can make partial quotes by editing the raw bbcode (via the "" button in the top right). At least, this seems to be possible on PC (see below), but maybe it's blocked in whatever editing method you normally use (which seems to be some kind of mobile client)?
