I spend a lot of time away from my keyboard, and use my phone and tablet to make posts on the Forum. Unfortunately, the BBCode quick buttons aren't the easiest to use with a touch screen device. If possible, could the BBCode input system be expanded to include separate quote and end-quote buttons, so as to simplify breaking up a passage when responding to multiple points? Concurrent to that, can the BBCode system be adjusted to insert the codes at the cursor, rather than at the end of the text, as cutting and pasting on a mobile device is much more cumbersome than on a computer.

There will probably not be any updates done to the existing system, unfortunately, but I have been debating upgrading to a new/different system and that may help some. I don't have a timeline for any upgrade yet, but I'm hoping it will happen relatively soon.
