Can I align text to the left?

    I've just joined HP and am trying to create my first hub. I've seen other hubs where there is text on the left and Amazon products on the right. Can someone tell me how to achieve that.
    I suppose it's something obvious but for the life of me I can't see it.

      Sandy  welcome to HP , you can do that by first loading an  Amazon capsule and then a text capsule. You use the arrows on the capsule that is horizontal to align capsules to left or right. Align the text capsule to the right and the amazon capsule will fall into place .
      Hope this help smile

        Thanks, sofs that works just fine. Although I have seen hubs with the text on the left. Perhaps that is done in a text module and using htlm to wrap the text around the product.
        Anyway I'm happy to do it this way for now.

    Use the navigation arrows up, down or right.

      Thanks for the advice, I knew it would be something simple.

    When wrapping, text is always aligned to the left, images and other elements on the right.

      Not always, you can get the text to align to the right. It depends how you do it. For example, if you have the Amazon capsule as full sized and make the text capsule half size, the text will align to the right.

        Thanks for information. I have seen that somewhere, now that you mention it. With images, it would always be the text on the left, is my impression.

        I didn't know that! I'll have to play with that to see how it looks. Thanks.

      Thanks for the input Website Examiner. Are you saying that it is possible to have the text on the left and wrap the wording around a product.
      I'm assuming in this case you would not use the Amazon capsule but import products into the text module.

        You are welcome. You cannot import anything like Amazon products or images into the text module, HubPages doesn't allow for that kind of encoding.

        To get the text on the left, put the (e.g.) Amazon capsule above the text capsule. Then click on the right-oriented arrow on the Amazon capsule, and you will get the effect that you want.

          Ahh, your my hero. Now that is exactly what I wanted. Now the text automatically wraps around the product. Looks much better.
          Now perhaps I can finish this hub and get it published.

            Great!

            It appears that the Squidoo link on your profile page isn't working, so you may want to fix that.

          Actually, Website Examiner, you can now put links to Amazon products in the text capsules. They have just recently changed it so that you can do that, and if anyone buys from that link you get all the commission and not a share as you do when you use an Amazon capsule.

            I am not sure what you mean about the links. It has always been possible to put affiliate links in text capsules, simply by creating a textual hyperlink. Are you saying it is now possible to put images inside of text capsules?
