I'm in the middle of typing some great content into a text capsule and after clicking "save" the text completely disappears.
I've gotten into the habit of copying everything every couple sentences as I type.
Anyone else have fun, frustrating experiences like this?
I haven't seen that happen. It does take a minute or two sometimes, but I haven't lost anything.
Ugh! That happened on this hub I was really into writing! I got so angry..I couldn't finish. I thought it had to do with my computer. But I guess not.
Why not type it into a word document, or text file if you don't have Word, saving as you go. The when you've finished copy and paste it into your hub. If anything goes wrong with the hub (or heaven forbid with hupages itself) you've always got your document or text file as a backup.
That's what I do. I just write it somewhere else and then paste it over when it's totally done.
I have "lost" a hub once when I was putting a capsule in and saved it. The writing stayed grayed-out as if I was still using the capsule, but I wasn't able to press anything or hit publish, etc. It just froze that way, stuck as if it was still behind the capsule. Good thing I'd written it in Word! I started over in a new hub.
If you don't have Word or clipboard, do you have MS Works? It comes standard in most computers & then you can copy & paste from there.
I usually just save it onto the clipboard by highlighting it and hitting CTRL + C then hitting CTRL + V when I'm ready to paste it again.
Other times I copy and paste it into a Word document.
OH. I dont have clipboard or word documents. My computer is messed up...thanx for the info tho. soon I wil have a new 'puter, and will be saving all over the place!!!
Yes, I get this problem. In fact I've been having it a lot lately.

Do you use the text capsules directly to write hubs or do you use word and then copy paste?or do you use some other application?

Is there a way to download my hubs?I was just thinking, usually I make sure I copy and paste my hubs into Word, or write them in word beforehand - either way, I make sure I save them. But recently I haven't been. I know with facebook you can download your profile, which is all your photos, photos...

I have started to write my content on word first then copy and paste across.But Word adds in extra little bits of HTML and i am not sure if hubpages has a filter or something to clean it up, As search engines don't like it much, I just wondered if i should be doing something to clean it up my...

When "fixing" hubs I often have to exit out of the edit page to check my hubmetric stats for word count - why isn't there an option to see your word count while in edit mode? Or am I missing it?Yes, I know I can copy and paste into Word and check word count but that's even more time...
