I am a new hubber. How do I format the font and get rid of wrap text feature. My words are separated in the midlle, etc.
Are you copying and pasting from a word processing program like Word?
If so, copy the text into Wordpad or Notepad first, to get rid of any formatting.
Nope...just writing into the hub square for text. Is there a place to choose fonts and margins etc.? Do I need to type into the Notepad first, then copy/paste?
You only need to use Notepad if you're transferring the text from somewhere else.
I looked at one of your Hubs and can't figure out how you ended up with a strange,non-standard font. I think you must have selected another style in the "Format" drop down box.
If you do that, you must expect the paragraph spacing etc. to act strangely, because you've selected a format that's not intended for ordinary text.
Use the "paragraph" format (to fix what you've already typed, highlight it before selecting paragraph).
Oh, and on HubPage it's normal to leave a line of white space between paragraphs. Your eagle Hub is one big indigestible lump - I recommend you break it up into a few paras.
Not alot you can do with fonts here, I type everything in 18pt font because I can't see well, but when I paste it here, it all turns out the same size as everyone else's. I don't think we can change the color, either, but bold, italics, etc. are there.
You can keep typing in the text box, it's okay. But if you type in another word processor, copy/paste it into notepad first, then copy/paste it from notepad to the text box and all the formatting will be removed. So watch para breaks and such.
they only give the feature bold, italicize, or underline - the other options are to incresdse the size of (formatting) of paragraph 1, title, etc. I don't think they allow changing the font ,to keep the site looking more uniform altogether. Margins I am not sure about.
As long as we're on the subject. I'm curiuos to know why ppl type into the text editor/notepad first,then paste into the fields. Isn't that just adding alot of extra copy and pasting . I understand Sandys point about font point 18 being easier to read but couln't you just use the page, zoom feature on your browser? Or is it to save the original work as backup?
No, it's because if you paste text from Word it somehow imports weird formating which you get rid of via notepad. But if you write straight into text capsules that doesn't apply of course.
As you say, the reason is to save the original work as a backup. I know I should do that, but I prefer to type straight into the text capsules.
The other reason is if you have a slow connection or a limited internet plan, so you have to compose the Hub offline then cut and paste it into the Hub in one go. If you do it straight from Word, it imports a whole lot of cr@p with the text.

Yesterday when I was working on a Hub, each time I tried to cut and paste some text from Word, it appeared not to show up in the block, at all. I could not see it at all until I had saved the page. When it...

The double-space text format encountered while creating hubs is a considerable setback for an otherwise very good, enjoyable site.It's discouraging as well as exasperating for any beginner to have to struggle with the...
