How to "Reply as a Linked Topic"?

Just read the Community Guidelines (to earn the achievement) and it mentions when branching off the current topic to “Reply as a Linked Topic”, but I can’t found how to do that in the UI. Am I missing something?

Hey there! Good question, and the solution is a bit tucked away. If you click on the :link: icon on the topic you want to link to, and then click “New Topic” it will reply as a linked topic.


Definitely a UI issue, but that’s the how to!
