Sorry you're having problems, but THANK GOD you are, too! I upgraded my OS last night to Windows 7 and when I came online just a few minutes ago to publish a hub I was having all kinds of problem - like you mention - with the text AND Amazon capsules.
The Amazon capsule won't let me paste anything to it - I can't even get a cursor on the line where I would paste something - I click on it and nothing happens. The text capsule has the small font like you say, but at times won't let me add any text or paste anything from Word!
I though it was a glitch with the new Windows 7, but maybe it's a HubPages glitch (I hope!). The latter would certainly be better, because I'm liking Windows 7 but was starting to kick myself in the ass for installing it! I hope this problem gets resolved quickly!
same thing happened to me too. Once it wouldn't save my edits, the second time it wouldn't let me even click in the box. I had to leave the editing stage, then come back a third time to finally get my edits to work.
Okay, well then what does it usually default to? When I go to edit a text capsule it won't let me type anything - I can't even get my cursor on the window anywhere - can't paste anything either - unless I change that setting to either format or paragraph ..... I never had to do that before.
I'm also finding that I have to save unpublished and then go back into the hub to edit it in order for the Amazon capsule to accept anything.
It's going to take me all night to publish one hub!
Try this: Hold down the CTRL key and press the + button. It'll make your font size larger. Press it again, larger still.
Use the minus to reduce the size.
Holding down the CTRL key and moving the scroll wheel on your mouse will do the same thing. Sometimes that's what happens while you're typing and clicking you can be pressing on that CTRL key while scrolling up or down in your browser window.
I'm familiar with that "tool", Darkside, and unfortunately that's not the problem. I don't know if you read what was happening to me or not, but there's definitely something more going on and I can't figure out if it's my new OS or if it's HP? I know you are so full of knowledge, Darkside, I wish that you could figure this out for me!
Something has seriously gone wonky with text capsules. The type is now miniscule when you edit them, and all other text is an appropriate size. And the issues only shows up while editing, preview is just fine.
Yes, indeed, Larry: Thanks! After struggling with the mini-print to finish a hub that'd been in progress for a couple of days, my solution was going to be "I'll never write another hub!" I definitely like your solution better.
And it even fixed the "add a link" popup at the same time. I am definitely impressed.
I've heard they slow traffic down although I have a few hubs with call outs that are doing well, so I'm not sure what to do. I hear some say they're fine and others that they are traffic killers. Would appreciate some...
I think I missed something here but have recently seen some discussions about in-text Amazon links v Capsules. How do you put in text links in, is there a special way? Do I just get the link that I get from Amazon when...
