    Deleted a text capsule, of over 1000 words, and there is no way of getting it to reappear.  Control Z does not work.  does hub have any record of what I accidentally deleted.  Help. . .

      If you do not see the text in your saved Hub, then it is likely it was saved after you removed the capsule.
      Unfortunately, it is not possible to recover deleted capsules.

    If the hub was previously published, find the google cache of the hub and copy it from there.

    Thanks guys,
    It is an 1100 word piece of toast now. . .
    I was just hoping that there was a way to salvage it. . .

      Sorry to hear it.
      I know this doesn't help you right now, but going forward you may want to save any text locally as a backup.
      Many times I work locally in a plain text editor like Notepad++ before moving text content to capsules.

    Good idea, but I am just starting, and so busy, I sometimes just dont take enough precautions like that.  It will never happen to me. . .
    But it did!
    Cheers

    Everything happens for a reason. Learn from your mistakes-- In the future copy your content to word or notepad.
    Contact hubpages staff. Send them an email and tell your situation.
    Good Luck!

      This has been answered Mathew Meyer who is one of HubPages staff, you can tell staff posts by the difference in the color of their comment.

      Sorry, it is a lot of work and  text to lose. it is good advice to write it elsewhere as suggested and then add it here. If you use more text capsules and break the text down into them when writing it may help if you have to edit, now or in the future.
