Add blockquote formatting to editor


edwardejsr

Idea

Feature request to add blockquote/quote formatting to the editor so that blocks of text that are typically quotations have distinct formatting such as indent, line prefix. This is useful since may websites/blogs use block quote styles when referencing sources, it saves from having to manually style quote sections with italics etc, and helps any future export/formatting improvements (e.g. blockquotes style can be customized for all notes, export to HTML or markdown is more logical).

Functionality includes

  • Automatically enter blockquote formatting if the start of the line begins with "> "
  • Allow not going into blockquote format by pressing undo immediately after entering "> "
  • Continue blockquote format on the next line if already in blockquote
  • Exit blockquote format after entering two new lines
  • Allow 'quote' format in drop down menu
  • Automatically detect quote regions when simplifying article from web clipper
  • Support some other formatting elements within a block quote e.g. headers, bold, images, tables, links

It is right behind the blue + - symbol when you are in editing mode. Screenshot from my Mac EN app, v 10.8.5. It is there in mobile as well.

@Matt Whitby did you try using the code block suggested by PinkElephant?  Other than the code typeface, this produces an effect very similar to the quote on the forum.  You could also italicize and indent.... or use a specific highlighter color for quotes
