    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?

    I copy and paste.  It makes it easier, for me, to think as I write and although I am not the best editor of what I write I can see mistakes somewhat easier.

    I write in Word first, then copy paste each paragraph into the next Text Capsule.  I do that because I like to break my Hub up into many text capsules.

    In the beginning would do copy and paste but I get a better sense how the story will look and the writing flow just seems to go better the other way. Do print up several copies of each article though.

    Most of the time I write my text in word and then copy and paste. I have, however, written directly in the text capsule a few times. It depends on how much research I do and the length of of the hub.

    I do both depending on the article as lots of times once I get it into the various capsules, I can see where I might need to flesh the article out with another section or more information. If I'm just adding a paragraph or two, it's just as easy to type it right into the text capsules.

    I write in Word, e-mail it to my girlfriend and to my sister. Then I copy and paste to the hub. I keep all my original work in Eord files. Greg

    Well for as for me, I complete the writeup first in word, do the editing and when I am done, I copy straight into the text capsule

    I use WORD, then copy and paste after I have it pretty much edited the way I want.

    I copy and paste. That way I have a record of what I wrote on file.

    I use Word, copy it and read it, then edit several times then copy and paste into capsule. I check spelling in Word and in capsule. I would like to work with a better word processor.

    I switch back and forth.  When I have a pretty good idea of everything I want to say, I'll write it directly in a text capsule.  If not, I'll start writing a hub in Word and play with it until I'm 99% satisfied, then copy|paste into a text capsule. (The last 1% is the tweaking I ALWAYS do before finally hitting "Publish" - checking spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc. one last time.)

    I copy and paste in Word, but sometimes I have to tweak the formatting as it all comes out underlined.

    I write in Word and copy-paste into text capsule. I do this as I am used to Word and am most comfortable with its features.

    It depends sometimes I will write a hub in a text editor like Google Docs and then just copy and paste over.  Invariably I will edit or write in the text module to make the hub what I am trying to achieve.  The Editor is actually easy to write in, in my opinion.

    I've done both - I sort of like the flow of writing it ahead of time & then copying it into capsules. It's easier to break it into logical sections that way. Otherwise, I've ended up cutting & moving content after the capsules are installed just to break things up a bit.

    Most of the time I write directly on the text capsules. Before writing I will make a rough draft in my mind.  Since we have a saving mode in hubpages, I save it as draft (save unpublished) and come back and edit it as and when I need it. Once I'm satisfied I'll publish it. I find it very convenient that way.

    I do both as well. I usually start on Word, then add more when I'm creating the Hub. smile

    I used to cut and paste, but now that my internet is very reliable, I use the text capsule, it works well!

    I use the text capsule currently, but if I'm without an internet connection and feel the urge to write I wouldn't hesitate to write on Word and copy/paste.

    I write them on my computer first and then copy and paste into my hubpage. Prefer to have it on my computer first. I also check spelling and grammar before submitting to a hub.
