Are Block Quotes possible in The Bat?
 
The title pretty much says it. For some reason, a search for "block quotes" turns up nothing. Help appreciated.

That could mean several things. If you want to paste a block in quoted format, use Paste Quoted (Shift-Alt-INS). If you want to indent a quoted block, select it in column mode and press Ctrl-K I. If you want to center a block, select it and press Alt-C.

Or, if you mean a quote style where the quoted text is indented and preceeded by a single " sign, I'm afraid that's not an option.

When you are composing, what is column mode?  (Apologies if this is something trivial I missed.)

I do miss the easy indenting when it is on tool bar, as in Eudora.  Not sure how easy Gmail is for this feature.
Similarly, on forums I do a lot of block quoting, which is a cousin to indent, and, when available, that is a fav feature.

===========================

Also I see the "insert Column on the right" is interesting. You can actually make a multi-column document.  Do you use that much?  Does the recipient receive it properly? Is it practical?

When you use the regular Plain Text MicroEd editor, it has a 'Block Type' button in the status bar below (look to the right of the insert/overwrite indicator). It allows you to make selections either by line, as a stream, or as a column (block).

Not sure what you mean exactly or where you see that, but if you send plain text messages and you and the recipient both use a fixed width font, he should see the same columns that you do.
