The text capsules seem to work fine, but the picture, polls, amazon, etc. capsules sometimes refuse to give me a cursor and I can not type anything into them.. This can happen 10 times during my work on a hub, and it really slows me down. I found thru trial and error that if I click "done editing" and then reopen the hub for editing, it will usually work again. Does this happen to anyone else? Why does it happen? How can I stop it?. I use Windows 7 and internet explorer.
@Catherine Sorry you are having trouble using the HubTool and editing your Hub.
We are unaware of any issues that would affect authors abilities to edit their Hubs.
I tested using Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 11 and was able to edit a Hub using the HubTool and add, and alter both photo and Amazon capsules.
So it sounds like you may be encountering a browser, computer, or network issue. It could be a computer resource issues as well (RAM, CPU, etc.)
I would suggest trying a different browser like Firefox to see if the issue persists (on my test machine Firefox loads faster than IE11).
Here are some other browser trouble shooting steps to try as well (clear cache, upgrade browser, restart computers, etc.)

Thank you Matthew. My Adobe Flash was up to date. I have internet explorer 11 and automatic updates is checked so I presume it is the latest version. I cleared the cache so I will see if the problem persists. I plan to do some hubs this week.

Today I noticed that when I click on the 'go right' arrow in Amazon capsules, it brings me to the top of the page and I have to scroll down to the capsule again to click on the 'go up' arrow to place it next to a text capsule. Is this a glitch/bug? I can't recall I had this problem earlier and...

I'm still having problems saving text capsules that have links in them.I've been having the problem for months now. Every now and then I can't save text capsules that have contextual links within the capsule. I'm using Firefox and I've tried Safari today. I can only get it to work most of the time...

When adding maps to a hub the first one is fine. However, if I add more than one map to a hub the second and subsequent maps don’t automatically refresh in edit mode.I’m not sure whether it’s a compatibility issue with the browser I use and HubPages e.g. Internet Explorer; and I don’t...

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. ...

Lately I've been experiencing issues with how capsules are displayed within the editor. When I'm moving capsules to a desired location, there seems to be odd gaps, blank spaces, and dead spots that can't be filled with a picture or have a separate capsule fixed to them. I've tried to fix text...
