    I use AbiWord 2.6. it's a free wordprocessor. You can find it easily googling AbiWord. It may not have all the bells and whistles of some applications, but hey, it's free.

    I write all my work in Word, and when finished, cut and paste, a capsule at a time, into my draft hub. Then I do a final edit, finesse for widows, line breaks etc, after I've added pix and other elements.

    PS 'widows'? Old world terminology (from hot typesetting days). It's those words that end up at the end of a line, where there's room for them, but leaving them there spoils the readability, so you drop them down to the next line. Usually words like 'I', 'we', 'of', 'a', 'the'. In case you were wondering..smile

    Thanks for this question, rajan. Thanks to my fellow hubbers who responded. I just learned something else new. I always type directly into HP; but often wondered how other hubbers text is enhanced beyond the available applications. Silly me....I was thinking that those features become available once you reach certain benchmarks!!!! Thanks again for sharing!!

    I use Word for writing my text.  When I am finished with my draft, then I copy and paste into Hubpages text capsule.

    After I have copied it all for my hub, I add my photos, links and such. I like to review it a couple of times each day. I often come up with more ideas when I allow it to "set" for a while before publishing.

    Thanks for your question.

    I usually use OpenOffice, at least for the first, rough draft. Once I think I have it pretty close I put in into the capsules. I often tweak it quite a bit for the first couple of days, even after I have published.

    I use MS word 2010. I used to use Open Office but that's crap so I decided to install MS office instead. Just to add I find that Chrome has a better spell check than Firefox so if I missed something in word when I paste my text in the capsule, Chrome will pick it up and I can correct it.

    Gosh I just use the Hubpages capsules and leave things unpublished until I'm done with them.

    I like to assemble my capsules as I go, and try to make the page look pretty, and I best judge how it's all going to turn out by doing it all here.

    I simply open a Word document to do my draft.  Once I have my draft complete, I run a spell check.  Then I copy and paste my article one capsule at a time. At that point I always preview and read it again before I publish.
