I almost lost a new hub because there's something wrong, right at the moment, with the Print feature. When I pushed "print", the screen came up blank white, and Internet Explorer closed itself down. When I logged back onto the webpage, I was relieved to discover my hub was still there.
It was still there because I had, after "Done Editing", also used the feature "Save Unpublished" before trying to print. If I hadn't the hub would have been GONE!
Why do you need to print?
And can you not print after publication?
I usually print it out unpublished to proofread the hard copy before publishing. I find the spell checker picks up the misspelled words but sometimes the word is wrong anyway in the context of what I wrote.
For some reason, I proofread better from a hard copy than looking at it in the computer.
I keep a loose-leaf binder of the hubs I've published, so I stash the proof copy in there, when I'm done.
Fair enough, makes sense. Couldn't you write your hubs on a word processor..... then print them off, before copying and pasting the text into hubpages? I know many people that do so. Well, not the printing off bit.... but a few peeps write on notepad.
Try using onenote or word to write and edit your writings before plugging in to publish. That way your work is saved and spellings are checked as well.
Thanks, ryankett. Quite a few people are recommending that, to use notepad, or one note, to write it first then paste it over. And that way for sure there's a backup of the written copy. Thanks!
I learned, as many have, that typing directly into any writing site means risking losing a whole lot of typing, because there's always one thing or another that can happen.
I don't print anything, but I write into WordPad, save the file, and have the Hub (or whatever else it was I wrote). Then I copy into the text capsule on HubPages. To further safeguard work, I copy onto at least two separate disks, as well as a memory pen. I don't do this with Hubs, but I'll also, at times, store particularly important/long material in a couple of e.mail accounts I set up for that purpose. I'm planning to get an external hard drive too. All the extra precautions aside (I don't do them as I write each thing, but later), it really does pay to at least have your Hubs as files before doing anything else.
I've learned that it pays to be "paranoid".
