Tip: Quickly delete quoted text while replying

When you reply to a message, Cerb quotes the original content by default. This is designed to make it easy for you trim a few relevant lines from the original message to give context to your response1.

However, many people just quote back your entire previous message in every response.

You can use the #delete command in a reply to quickly remove those huge blocks of quoted text.

For instance, in three keystrokes (#, d, and <ENTER>), you can turn this:

Into this:

That’s much faster than holding <SHIFT> and pressing the <DOWN> arrow a few dozen times before pressing <DELETE>.

The same shortcut also works in the mobile interface, which saves a lot of time compared to trying to highlight a page of text with your fingers while simultaneously scrolling.
