Are you tired of using those red arrows to move capsules?

    If you have a long hub and need to move capsules from the bottom of your hub, it is a pain.  I finally figured out the box on the right of your hub in edit mode, Organize your content.  Once the hub is finished, the headings of your text boxes and your Amazon capsules are right there.  Simply do a drag and drop from the Organize your content box. It sure beats hitting the arrow for one capsule 25 times to move it to where you want it.

      Thanks, Linda!  That's really helpful.

      Oooh! Thanks for that tip, Linda, so much easier than sitting there punching that arrow key forever to move something.

      Thank you Linda, for sharing a brilliant tip which I never thought of or know that it exists there. It's a good service by you.

    You can also place capsules right where you want to so you don't have to move them.  If you hover on the left of the column, you will see an icon that says insert capsule.  Scroll down to where you want to place your capsule, then click "insert capsule".  You can select the type of capsule you want to put there, and then you don't have to move it at all.

      This would be my preferred method.

      That's what I've been doing, when I think ahead. But sometimes at the last moment I think of something to add, and find I add it from the right side, instead of using the capsule. Just things we Squids have to get used to, but we're learning! (smile)

      Most of us use this method. But Linda Smith's is also a very good one to organize the capsules even after your whole hub is ready for publishing. Here you get one more final choice for arranging them in a better way.
      During the early stage of creating the hub, one may go in a rush to finish it quickly. Then he may want to or notice something mistake in selection or arranging of the capsules. So, easily one can alter the position of the saved capsules by organizing them.

    Millionaire  I have seen those but they were annoying.  Actually I had no idea as to what they were there for.  After reading your post I went back to a hub and added some content and product using your method.
    Much easier to do it your way.

    I find it odd that anyone is just seeing that feature. It's been there for years. If you came from Squidoo, it had the same set up

      It didn't really have the same setup on Squidoo. We couldn't move ours without the sidebar...on HP you CAN move them with the arrow. We couldn't.

    Depending on what I want to do I use all three of these methods to move content around.
    I do prefer to add a capsule from the left though, as it's then exactly where I want it to be.   
    Having options is great, and I enjoy using HP's hubtool.
