When I click on edit the test box is not shown and I cannot put new text in there or discard old text. At this rate I will not be able to create new hubs or fix them for publishing. Help, please
This may either be a glitch that the team can fix or it might be a browser problem. Try opening your edit mode using a different browser to see if it works. If so, you may have a file extension on your main browser that is creating the problem. I use Chrome and have had this problem several times.
I've had similar errors. Sometimes it helps to save your work, exit editing mode (for the entire Hub, not just the capsule), and then re-enter.
On one rare occasion, I had a Hub that was really fuddled in editing mode, but looked fine if viewed normally. For that instance, I had to contact HP at email@example.com to get the issues resolved.
Thank you so much for your help Timetraveler2 and Jeremy Gill:) This has been so frustrating and I appreciate your assistance. I will try both solutions!!
I'm having a similar problems. In edit mode, when I open the text box to change/add to/edit text, the cursor will not appear, I cannot manipulate the text capsules. However, I am able to edit text captions in photo capsules. This has been going on for a couple of weeks. It seems to have gotten worse. HP tech, please check it out, thanks. Back later.
I think there are other glitches in the editing mode as well. I have just spent several days emailing back and forth with a tech because the editing capsules that are supposed to appear on the page when you click on it are no longer appearing.
I had this problem once before,and the team was able to fix it, but this time they are saying they can't reproduce the problem. I have tried changing browsers, but the problem is still there.
Is anybody else having this problem also?
I think if they are unable to fix a problem they created, then they should change it back to the way it was before they updated their editing mode. It seems they may have gotten ahead of themselves in trying to upgrade and in so doing have created problems for us.
Writing or editing a hub without having those edit capsules immediately available by the text box is very time consuming and frustrating.
Contact support, they will help you with your technical problem.
Update: It is the browser. I can manipulate the text capsules and edit text when I open HP using Google. It's still not working if I use Microsoft Edge. It also depends on whether I'm using my laptop, desktop, or Kindle to edit hubs. I'm using my desktop now and could not edit text capsules (using Microsoft Edge) but no problem editing caption text in photo capsules. Yesterday I used my laptop with Microsoft Edge and I was able to edit text capsules. Fickle and frustrating.

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. ...

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've been going through all my hubs, removing the sidebars and come across a strange bug that appears to be getting worse.I open the edit screen, then edit a text capsule. Close observation tells me it is a little small, or at least the font seems small. But when I try to click on a...

I am screaming with frustration! Most of my hubs have been unfeatured due to lack of traffic. I write about gardening which no one wants to read about in the winter. Spring is coming so I want to get my hubs featured again, but every time I try to edit them, I either get an error...
