I just wrote a new hub today, the first in a couple of months or more. It was auto-related, and it seemed to come with a "pre-formatted" template.
I do not like it, and I want to arrange the text capsules myself. What happened is that one of the text capsules seemed to be automatically floated right, and I don't want it there--it is a little out-of-sequence, and confusing in my opinion, because the next-door capsule finishes out being full-width underneath the right-hung capsule. I don't like this at all.
Can I fix it??? Do I have to unpublish and start over?? What gives, here?
Those are called topic templates. See the announcement here:
http://blog.hubpages.com/2013/05/a-new- … templates/
If you don't like them, you can select "Basic Article" in section 3 here (the next time you start a new Hub):
For a hub that was already started with the templates, you'll just have to delete all the extra capsules until you get down to how you like it.
What about an already-published hub? Can I still get things re-arranged?
Of course, you can move capsules around any time in any Hub.
Carola Finch almost had it for you but she forgot to explain fully that if you hover your mouse over the right corner of the 'floated right' capsule then you will see a double ended arrow. Click on that arrow and the capsule will grow to full size, next to that arrow you will see an up arrow and a down arrow with which you are able to move the capsule above or below the following or previous capsule. There is also a red 'X' beside the arrows and when you click on this you totally remove the capsule. I should have mentioned that to move your capsule back to the right the double-ended arrow becomes an arrow pointing to the right - just click on that.
You don't have to use the template. You have the option to click on "basic article" and use the basic format. You can fix the problems. You can click on the arrows at the top of the text box to undo the right orientation. In "edit" mode you can scroll down to "organize your content" on the right side and move your capsules around by clicking and holding down your mouse and dropping them on the location you want inbetween the capsules. Just make sure the capsul goes where you want, sometimes they pop up to the top.
I've been in absentia for a while, and had not realized these pre-formatted things crept in while I was "away."
I'm still not fully "back," and personal issues are keeping me from having time to catch up on all the posts vis-a-vis new changes.

I recently filled in a survey on how to improve HubPages but forgot to mention a very important design issue which has been bothering me for a long time.When a text capsule is very long, I like to turn it into 2 adjacent capsules so it works like 2 columns. Easier to read, right? But every time I...

A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp it. Then I misplaced or accidentally deleted her email -- so I haven't...

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

Okay, to start with, the features in the capsules we have are already pretty awesome, and my hat is off to the programmers for coming up with all these utilities.There is one additional feature that would be on my wish list, and that would be the option to "drag and drop" photo and map...

I can't edit nor change text capsules. Each time I try to edit text capsules, the text freezes. The cursor for text doesn't work. Please change to the previous hubtool writing capsules where things worked. This new hubtool capsule is beyond ridiculous. ...
