Method 1: Single-line Quoting

You can use the multi-line quoting method when you want to quote a message that takes up more than one line, such as a paragraph or a long text message with line breaks. You can easily type > in front of every new line or paragraph that you want to quote. However, typing > in front of every line or paragraph can be time-consuming if the quote is long. Therefore, here is how to quote messages in Discord by using a simple multi-line quoting method:

1. Open Discord and head to the conversation where you wish to quote the message.

2. Now, type >>> and hit the spacebar once.

3. After hitting the spacebar, start typing the message that you want to quote.

If you wish to exit the quote, then the only way to exit the quote is by sending the message and starting a new one, or you can backspace >>> symbol to exit the multi-line quote.

However, the multi-line quote works slightly different on the desktop version of Discord as both ‘>’ and ‘>>>’ gives you a multi-line quote. Therefore to make a single line quote on the desktop version, all you have to do is press return and then make a backspace to return to normal text.

Method 3: Use Code Blocks

For example, we are quoting the line single line code block, and we are typing it as `single line code block.` Check the screenshot for reference.
