When using the
” button to blockquote someone else's words (presumably also when using Ctrl+Q, if that wasn't the browser quit key), the quoted material is reflowed, by design. I don't particularly like it, but I can accept that for text.
This reflow isn't applied to code that's indented four spaces. That's good - the layout of code is usually significant, and I don't want it broken.
However, the reflow is applied to code that's enclosed by
```fences. That's bad, particularly when the fence has a highlighter hint, because I don't want to have to convert that to an indented code block.
This is particularly important on Code Review where pretty much every answer addresses code fragments from the question.
This isn't the same as Blockquote rewrap destroys code, nor as Code is incorrectly wrapped when applying blockquote style despite the similar titles.
Please can the editor be fixed so that when blockquoting fenced code, the code is protected from reflow just like indented code is?
