    Since changes took effect I cannot edit capsules as the edit button only appears when hovering over it. As soon as you move your finger the button disappears.
    I am using windows 8 and have done so without problems to date.
    This is really holding me back.
    Would it help using a mouse plugged into tablet?
    Bit of a waste having a tablet if that is the case.

    Hope you can help fix this.

      While we have made some recent changes to better support mobile and tablet devices, the site does not currently fully support tablets.  We are working toward better support for Internet Explorer 10, so that may help you in the long run.  I just did some research to see if there is a 3rd party browser (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, etc.) for Windows RT, but I was unable to find one.

      Are you using Internet Explorer 10 on an ARM-based Windows Surface or other RT tablet?

        Thanks anyway, I have found my way around the problem by using a mouse for editing.

        Ah, that explains why I had some problems using my iPad.  So glad I stopped by to read this!

          I did some testing yesterday of the Hubtool using an iOS6 iPad and was able to create, edit, and publish a Hub successfully.
          Are there specific issues you are encountering using an iPad?
          What version of iOS are you using?
