There are a number of issues when you try to edit quotes with the keyboard.

As in the case of paragraphs, I would expect a double enter to trigger a new block (quote or now).


This doesn't work either when trying to split a quote in two


Trying to merge quotes doesn't work either, as pressing backspace at the beginning of the second quote just move the cursor (inexplicably) to the beginning of the previous quote, instead of combining the two quotes.


When you try to select, you can do it one character at a time, but if you press shift-down to try to select the whole quote, it will just move the cursor.
