OK, so I'll confess up front that I'm a noob around here... at least when it comes to publishing.
I've noticed in a few longer hubs a lot of text is broken up with images and graphics and such. Now, I'm not a programmer, but it strikes me that would require an ability to insert HTML tags for in-line photos, etc. Maybe I'm blind, but I haven't seen a "show/edit HTML" toggle anywhere... nor have I seen any info on how to add HTML. Can you?
What (if anything) am I missing, here?
(off to read the help section, again)
It sounds like you've not noticed the Photo capsule, or the Video capsule. When you are editing a Hub, take a look over at the top righthand side of the layout screen and you'll find you can add various content capsules to a Hub. The photo one is quite versatile with many variations built-in.
HTML is extremely limited to what the editing tool inside the Text capsule will allow you. I'm guessing you've not checked that out yet either.
Thanks for the reply!
I was playing around with the text capsules, and was hoping to find a way to use a different font... and found myself mystified at the way using the "header" tool to format a bit of in-line text seems to change the font from the default to "Trebuchet." And then it starts affecting ALL the text in the capsule, if you backspace in the wrong places. I was actually looking from something that would allow me to make the equivalent of an HTML "header 5" size, which I often use on my web sites... but I'll work with what's there.
I finally figured out the photo widget... and that you have to "save" between moving from tab to tab, or the changes don't stick. I couldn't figure out why my photo stayed full width when I asked for half-width.
Since Hubs can be saved without publishing, it's quite easy to play around with the capsules and try different layouts and content options. Doing that was the best thing I did for myself when I started building Hubs.

Lately I've been experiencing issues with how capsules are displayed within the editor. When I'm moving capsules to a desired location, there seems to be odd gaps, blank spaces, and dead spots that can't be filled with...

I went into one of my older hubs to add a photo and got this message:"It looks like some images in this capsule appear to be reduced in size. Note that saving any changes made to this capsule will update the size...
