Question - [quick quote/quote text] cursor tool

Morning, I know that the site is undergoing constant improvement - and that is a lot of work. Thanks! I also know you can't please everyone. Your recent improvement with the [quick quote/quote text] cursor tool is very nice, and useful. Probably 90% of folks find it useful. Unfortunately, for me - it defeats the purpose for why I highlight text. I do highlight the text in long dense paragraphs, in order to read it, as it helps me to track across a wide page, especially mid paragraph (2 to 4 lines at a time). With the [quick quote/quote text] it covers up part of the text I have highlighted in order to read. I am just getting old....

Question - is there some way to disable it on an individual user basis?

Not from our end, but since it's powered by JS, all you'd have to do is block the main script file- I think it's called main.js if I remember correctly.

It still doesn't prevent you from reading, though- just make sure you release your mouse after what you want to read, and the popup will appear there.

Unfortunately, even Adam can't write a script that can resolve that.
