I have seen hubs with what I thought was the Callout capsule since it is in grey aligned to the right. I just tried using one but it does not align to the right. In fact there isn't an arrow for anything but up or down? If people are not using the callout box, then what is the colored box with text in it that I am seeing floated to the right of a text box?
I started seeing what I think is the Callout cap just about a week ago. It must be a new thing. But it is always centered in a gray box. Any box, Amazon, eBay, poll, or text can be shaded gray or blue if we float it to the right. I like that feature.
NEVER MIND! I found what I needed to know. The callout capsule is not the only shaded capsule, other than Amazon. We can shade the text and links capsules according this thread.

Phyliss: I have been here for 3 years and did not know you could highlight the text box. But then again, I don't float it to the right, and have no real desire to use the callout capsule.
I have one hub, and I wanted to highlight some specific information which is why I was going to go ahead and use the callout capsule but I wanted it to float to the right.
I just put my question in the search engine and found a thread that answered my question.
Hi Linda. I am not sure I like the callout capsule - it seems to break up the flow of the text with the dark gray and bold letters. I prefer the quote option in a capsule by itself, which floats to the center and I can put a subtitle on it, which is nice but not necessary. The quote then becomes a more fluid part of the text.
My favorite option for callouts other than actual quotes (for which I use the Quote option) is the Classic formatting. I can use the title field alone or both the title and text fields to separate and introduce a new section or to emphasize a key point, and the simple black rules at the top and bottom are effective without being as disruptive as the gray Colorbox option. (I also think that a big block of gray is unappealing; if we are ever offered a blue, black, or bordered white options for Colorbox callouts, I would use them much more often.)
My real wish about the Callout capsule is to keep it centered but make it the full column width rather than indented.
I have seen them used, not impressed. I may change my text capsule back to not being highlighted and put back into the normal flow of the hub.

I recently updated an old hub, to get rid of right shifted capsules. I had three, all little "blurbs", additional interesting tidbits of information that the reader might like, and all three were gray in...

I've heard they slow traffic down although I have a few hubs with call outs that are doing well, so I'm not sure what to do. I hear some say they're fine and others that they are traffic killers. Would appreciate some...

I probably should know this by now, but I don't. When composing a Hub, on the right hand side I see something called "callout". I don't have a clue. Is that something new, or have I...

Is there any difference in the way search engines view subtitles versus callouts? i.e. does using one make it more likely than the other for your article to rank well?

I loved the idea of the callout capsule, as I frequently use quotes and other tidbits of information in my hubs. The problem is that the capsule doesn't float right and is designed that way.If you allow for...
