I’ve noticed since I updated to 13.1.2 on my iPhone 7+ that now when I select a portion of a post and tap on reply, nothing happens. I have to tap on Quote and then insert the quote into a new post. I can reply to an entire post, no problem... it only happens when I select just a portion.

I see this, too, although I remember it starting somewhere in iOS 12. What seems to be happening is that the Copy/Lookup/Share is popping up and is taking precedence over the Quote/Reply. If I tap anywhere to make the C/L/S go away, the Q/R goes away too.

It works for me no problem on android/Firefox.
Yeah, the Copy/Lookup/Share popup is produced by iOS rather than by MobiTog. I've been poking around trying to find an alternate way to dismiss it that would leave the Reply popup still on the screen.

Or hmmm, maybe not. I misinterpreted Cat's post, but now I see what she meant -- The +Quote option works but the Reply option doesn't.

but the Reply option doesn't.
If I reply to an entire post it works, but if I just select part of a post it doesn't work. And seems it only happens on my iPhone because I just did it here from my iMac with no problem.

Right, that's what I see, too. It's only the Reply option in that popup that appears when you select text.
