Hi. Does anyone know how to get rid of white spaces when using a tablet. Thanks
Do you mean space characters or blank lines?
I'm not quite sure whether the on-screen key pad on an iPad has a delete key, but the Android keypad has, so to delete blank lines, simply position the cursor at the end of a paragraph and tap del until the blank lines are removed. Just use the backspace key to remove space characters, tabs or other whitespace characters.
If you're referring to text capsules on HubPages, you can remove blank lines by taping on the HTML button while editing a capsule, and delete unwanted <P><\P> tags.
Yeah, one editor was very specific about white spaces as one of the no's no's. The HTML removal of <p> seems to work, but I still have troubles with the last line or so.
I may be imagining this, but waiting a few more seconds before hitting "save" for the module gets more of the white space removed.
If I'm not wrong getting your question. The white spaces are lines which you left blank in a capsule, may be due to some sentences you delete after writing.
As eugbug said, delete those blank lines using backspace key.
If you cut and paste from Word (or any word processing program), you may paste in some formatting along with the text. That will cause white spaces.
The easiest way to avoid the problem is to paste your text into Wordpad or Notepad first. That will lose any extraneous formatting. Then cut and paste it from there into HubPages.
Sometimes you''ll find white space at the end of your text capsules. Position your cursor at the end of the text and hit "Delete" a few times.

Has anyone noticed extra gray lines in their hubs? Some of mine have these and it causes a large white area. It looks like the start of a text capsule, but it can't be removed or edited.

I've read in the forums before that writers should get rid of any white/empty spaces in Hubs and that this will help get traffic, make it look good for Google. At least that's how I remember the logic going. Is this...

So I'm going through my Hubs and making sure they are mobile/desktop friendly. I noticed that a lot of my hub capsules have ridiculous amounts of spaces to them after the paragraph ends. It makes it so there is a bunch...

It seems the News Capsule is now out of favour.That's a bummer, because over the last couple of years, it's been recommended as a great thing to add your Hubs to keep the content "fresh".As a result, I (and...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited...
