I have a hub imported from a Squidoo lens. It has a broken link, but I cannot remove or edit the link because the linked text is so long that there is no red X beside the link for me to delete it. I've tried changing the view of my browser to very small (60%), and I cannot get the red X or the blue edit link to show up. I can move the link, but I cannot edit it or delete it.

Nutcracker Drawing Pages from the Pacific Northwest Ballet
So you can see the full URL that is broken on the broken links page here.
It is in this Hub.
Tchaikovsky Composer Study
The broken link page identifies this as the link.
The broken link is in a link capsule.
You will want to edit the Hub using the HubTool, then edit the link capsule.
Click "edit" next to "Nutcracker Drawing Pages from the Pacific Northwest Ballet" in the link capsule.
You can click "test link" to have it recheck and confirm the link as bad.
You can either update the link or delete that link item using the red X.
If you have any further questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
The problem is that the EDIT button and the RED X do not show up. I can't click what's not there. I switched to a larger monitor, and I can see the EDIT and red X now.
What is the resolution of the monitor on which you do not see the controls for that link capsule?
Acer C710 (Q1VZC) Chromebook
I think it is likely related to the screen resolution, but I want to confirm that so I will check this out further on a Chromebook with a lower resolution later.
Thank you for the information!
I did some further testing and was not able to reproduce this issue on a Chromebook that has a narrower display.
If you see this issue again, please leave the Hub in the state and email us at email@example.com so we can look into it further.
Oh Wow... You've been sitting here for 10 hours in the hope that someone would help
Okay... 2 ways of stripping it out
1 - Put your hub into Edit mode - open the capsule with the broken link - cursor to click on the last letter and hold down the left keypad button as you move right to left until you have covered the entire script you want removed blue. Now find (top right hand cnr of capsule) the link diagrams (one is complete - one is broken) Release the left button and the text will remain blue - move your cursor to the broken link image and click it. The broken link should now be inactive. If you want to use the same text for a new link, repeat the process and click the left link image.
Or In Edit mode - Highlight the broken link text and press the Nuke button (between Insert & Home) on your keyboard. You will lose the text + the broken link and then just retype it again the way it should be - without having unsightly lines scrawled through text in your hub.
Or... Just delete and ditch the capsule and replace it with a new one with the same keyword And you'll get back exactly what you had minus the link...
I notice you have killed the link but x'd out the text... that lowers the aesthetics of your work.
Hope this has helped... take care
oh btw... I accept gifts or hugs!

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

When I highlight some text and click the link icon while in edit mode, the next window is locked up. I is supposed to let me enter a URL and click save. But all I can do is exit out of that window. I also can't click any of the tabs to change it to show Amazon links or other hubs. It is stuck...

I have relatively simple question.I was preparing a new blog and wanted to add some links into the main article. I tried using simple HTML <a href="url>name</a> to add the links, but then the code showed as well. For editing at home, using NotePad or Word, is there some...

When I start a hub, there are certain areas where it won't let me type. The curser doesn't even show up. Like when I post photos, it won't let me type in the subject box or the source box or the other boxes. I have to go to the ingredients and click on "additional...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...
