I don't know about you, but I still have quite a few hubs that need a complete edit as in capitalizing the titles/subtitles, checking grammar/typos, changing photos and I never manage to do that in one session.
So at what time exactly do I hit the 'done editing' button? Every time I've changed something or are the edits immediately effecive and can I wait to push that button until I think it's all finished.
Edit: I wish it would be possible to edit in the background, get it all done in my own time and then make it visible to the outside world.
I'm in the same situation. Usually I try to get all of my edits done at one time, but sometimes I know I will still want to come back and change something-- especially photos, which often take a little longer to fix.
I will usually hit "done editing" while thinking "for now". I don't really know if it causes any problems. If your hub comes up for review, they usually make suggestions for further edits.
I'm interested in further replies and insights.
The best way to work on a hub is to do it on a word processing program, proofread it there, spell check it there, count the words, etc. THEN copy and paste it into the hub tool where you add photos, etc.
You can always do more editing later, but this way you don't feel rushed and nobody sees it until you have finished editing.
That's true and I'm sure a lot of us do it that way. Some of us, however have hubs that are 8 or 9 years old. Rules have changed and they might need a tune-up. I am more careful about my newer hubs, but still sometimes find an old one that is worth saving with a few changes.
I'm not talking about writing new hubs. I'm talking like Rochelle says about hubs that need a complete tune up.
I leave my hubs open until I've finished editing them. A long time ago—if I'm remembering correctly—I read a post from a former HubPages staff member who said that when we click "Save" in a capsule of a published hub that we're editing, the edits in that capsule are effective immediately and can be seen by the public.

I just finished editing an old hub. Just wondering, does it get reviewed again and looked at as a feature? Just now getting back to writing after a busy couple of years. Thanks

I constantly look for ways to improve a hub, old, new or middle aged. It seems each time I'm brought back to a hub, by a new comment or notice any opportunity to change it I do so.Now when we do that, the hub is no...

Blergh, so I'm going back to my original hubs that are usually a single picture with a block of text and editing them so that they are prettier, longer, and hopefully seen as more Hubpage's friendly.It just seems like...
