I have a series of quotes which I want to display in two separate quote blocks.

When I try to add these to my post, they display as a single combined quote.

Are questions about Microsoft Word Online on-topic here? I don't really see any posted here, but perhaps I am not searching correctly. - mweiss

Yes, they are. We even have a specific tag: . -ale

Thanks! I'm sorry I missed that tag. -mweiss

How can I separate quotes so that they aren't combined into a single quote block?

Use comment markup <!-- --> and an extra whiteline between the quote blocks:

<!--  -->
> Yes, they are. We even have a specific tag: [tag:word-online]. -ale

<!--  -->

Yes, they are. We even have a specific tag: . -ale

Notice that this solution doesn't render any extra html tag between the blockquotes, resulting in the best minimal whitespace possible. Consider one of the other answers if you feel you need more separation between the blocks.

Is this what you wanted?

<span></span>

<span></span>

Edit: You can also put a <div> tag, it doesn't need a blank line before. Thanks to @Arulkumar in the comments.

    Huh, never would have thought to use <span>. Great answer! – Anthony Pham Jul 28 '17 at 14:05

    <div></div> is the other option, that doesn't require to add an empty line before the <span></span> – Arulkumar Jul 28 '17 at 14:44

    There are infinite options. It works because it breaks them up and then the system removes the span and div as invalid HTML. You could also use <lol></lol> or <!-- --> or <it really doesn't matter what you put here>. – animuson Jul 28 '17 at 15:00

There is no way to do it in the toolbar.

You can try adding a non breakable space after each blockquote

> Yes, they are. We even have a specific tag: [tag:word-online]. -ale

> Thanks! I'm sorry I missed that tag. -mweiss

Which will render as

Are questions about Microsoft Word Online on-topic here? I don't really see any posted here, but perhaps I am not searching correctly. - mweiss

 

Yes, they are. We even have a specific tag: . -ale

 

Thanks! I'm sorry I missed that tag. -mweiss

Use paragraphs

Yes, they are. We even have a specific tag: . -ale

However, the canonical use of <p> tag is wrapping content inside it.
