I know this is an old problem but surely one of the clever HP coding geniuses can fix it?? Apostrophes and other symbols never render correctly when copying and pasting from Word. I don't have Notepad, but even if I did, I wouldnt want the extra hassle of having to open it, copy and paste to it and then copy and paste again to a hub just to avoid the bizarre rendering. These wonky letters show up in search results and in newsletters, I see them all the time.
I had switched from Word to writing my hubs in the capsules themselves to avoid this, but the HP spellchecker is so difficult to see (the red is very easy to miss) that I wound up having to copy and paste to Word to check it; so I switched back to making them in Word.
But it had been so long that Id forgotten why I stopped copying and pasting from Word to begin with. Why don't the hubs recognize standard fonts?? Im using a default Word font, it's Times New Roman; nothing special. Its whats there when it opens.... this also happened before I switched to a Mac.
(If there is a font that is certain to render correctly, please tell me and I will make a point of using it in future.)
Can't this be fixed, pretty, pretty please??
You can change Word settings to avoid those
Won't work for what already written though.
And I missed you :*
Are you sure you don't have Notepad? Isn't that standard with Windows? Just click Start, Run and type in notepad.exe. If you have it, it will start up.
What needs to be changed??
I don't have a PC, and like I've said, I don't *want* to use notepad -- it's a waste of time and shouldn't be necessary.
I don't have word on this computer yet. I'll get to the other one later and could do a precise path, but as far as I remember it should be somewhere under options->autotext or autocorrect. You want to disable "smart" quotes and such
Fantastic, I just did it. Thank you very much! It would be good if all hubbers knew about this -- its a shame how many new hub notifications I get with wonky titles and intro paragraphs. Maybe Ryan could put it in his newsletter thing.

I'm thinking if we post all our Hubs on Google+, it would be a good way to "archive" them. Is this a good idea or a very bad one??

This is really not a big deal, but I am curious why there are two separate word counts for hubs. I am editing a hub and the new feature shows a word count of 1287. When I click on "done editing" and then look at the word count under the "stats/hub metrics" it shows...

Hi, I noticed over the last few days that when I copy and paste my document on word into the text tool, it comes up underlined and I have to spend time correcting and removing the underlines from the text that I do not want underlined (which is majority of the text). It can be time consuming and...

Do you write your hub in word processor first or directly in the hub?

I have a question. May I copy and paste an article from my Word program onto HubPages, or do I have to write it all when I'm online? I would hate to have my account closed if doing it this way is in violation, as I am quite enjoying it here. Thanks for any input.
