This is my first time working with hub and it's not going to well...
I wrote a whole article in the the text...
Added a picture...
I went to change something in the text and it showed my text as empty! Where did it go? If it's gone, I'm gone!!!!
You're probably gonna suggest that I write the articles in another program and paste them in. I guess, if I continue, I'll do that. But that was ridiculous. I absolutely HATE losing things I write!!!
I thought the draft was saved as you go? Where is it saved to? Can I retrieve it? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh
That happened to me the first hub I wrote, no idea why, but I'm pretty sure if it's gone it's gone.
Now I write in word and copy and paste it in.
If you didn't exit and had hit *save* then your text should still be there. Go into the *my account*. Top of the page there and go to statistics. You should find it there and click. not really sure what you did but yes, if it isn't saved, its lost.
Never had that happen to me so far, but VooDoo answered a question I had regarding Word. All of my articles were written directly into hubpages. Now I want to update certain articles with information but hubpages doesn't seem to let you copy and paste the capsules..... I might be doing something wrong.
I find it easier to type it in Microsoft Word and Just paste it into the Text Box when I'm ready to Publish it. That way, if it disappears, I have my own copy.
If you edit the text capsule, you should see at the bottom left-hand corner a blue link that says "recover draft." You can then view the autosaves and pick the one that you want.
Be sure the "Don't display this capsule" box is unchecked before you hit save or publish.
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Maddie was right... I didn't know what to do so rewrote the article- probably a better version anyway- and when I went to make the hub again, it said that the hub address was already in use. I so I went to the address and there it was. The text box was still empty, but like Maddie said, there was a little link on the bottom of the box that said "recover draft". So no worries. I went ahead and published with the new and improved article. Thanks guys!

I've got an idea for my first hub and hope to start working on it in the next few days.If I were writing my hub as a straight article, I would probably end up with 7-8 sections and use subheadings for each one. Looking...

I know I've seen this elsewhere online, where you can't actually copy text or images. You can view pictures but not download them or even embed them. Would it be possible to do this at all? At least it would cut down on...
