I've been trying to post some data in my hub in the form of a table, but it keeps getting converted to standard text, with the formatting all gone.
A bit more clarification would be good:
-Are you using the table capsule or the text capsule?
-Are you writing the table manually or uploading it from your computer/another site?
Hi and thanks for the reply!
I've been using the text capsule, pasting the table from MS Word. Is there a table capsule as well?
ok... I found it, but am still unable to paste data from the MS Word file on my laptop. All the options it seems to have is
1. Feed data manually.
2. Upload a csv file from the computer.
3. Get data from the web.
I'm stuck again!
Your best option is to copy and paste it into excel, save the excel document as a .csv file (on the drop down list when you visit save as) and then upload it. That's how I've done it before. That should work!
In case you do not have Excel, you can use a free online service (Google Docs or Zoho) or the free Open Office program suite to import the Word file, then make the conversion to CSV.
I do have Excel, that's not the problem.
But please do consider adding an option for pasting tables from word directly. It would make the job of adding additional data to support the hubs so much easier!
More so, the csv format does away with a lot of formatting options that add to the look and feel as well.

The table capsule does not appear to be working. It won't allow a file to be uploaded.

I've had to unpublish my Sevillanas Hub because the Table capsule isn't working. It uploads OK, then when I save it, it says "Oops there's a problem" and tells me to hit Edit and Save again. I've...

I was just wondering if HubPages has the option, or has given any thought to adding an option, in the table capsule to format column width. I use a lot of tables and have never seen this, but would love to be able...

While I realize that Hub Pages is not a poetry-first website, focusing instead on articles, I still wish we could have a return to the days when we, as authors, had a bit more creative freedom in how we arranged our...

Can you change the column width of the columns of the table capsule? It seems there is no option for doing that. In my opinion it is a must feature for a table.
