Spaces, Fonts...and a Variety of Symbols

    By checking my profile...I see I have been here five months. Yet, there are three things...I haven't quite worked out yet. Maybe, you can help...Maybe, some are suggestions to consider...don't know.

    1. I write my stuff ("poems") from hand written notes alot of times to the text capsule. Most of the time...after doing this...the program will not save the spaces I have put in between verses. I have tried many things "format, paragragh, settings,...etc." = nada/nothing. If I come back and fix a typo or anything...(I'm beginning to think the spaces I have set successfully just disappear matter what) those spaces will be gone.

    2. Font- I like a little variety in that everything doesn't look the same...that's just me. I know alot of text and colors are not conducive to a web posting...but a little more variety wouldn't hurt. For instance a little old English script...Stencil style...or Old West font could help some of the presentation and theme of an idea...IMHO. (Red Font, too. I tried the same technique for red in Hub text capsules as you are able to do in Forums Posts = Nada)

    3. I have used a variety of symbols between verses of my work to leave a permanent divider...rather than a space between them...and by now...the symbols variety that we have to choose from are just getting old (I think my cell phone has more variety of choices of Text Symbols...than our Hub Text capsule). This is not a complaint...only a suggestion! Please add some WingDings, Smiley faces, or just more unique the choices in the Hub text capsule...just to give "wierdo" poem writers like me...a few more images to personalize our stuff...Thanks. The End.

    I've also noticed spaces disappearing and stuff. I've found that instead of pressing enter after a sentence to create a paragraph, I press enter before the line that I want to be at the beginning of the new paragraph...if that makes sense.

      Ok...AV...Are you saying that if I go back and hit enter at the start of each new paragraph...that may fix this problem?

        In my experience if I do this it works, but if I push enter at the end of the sentence instead of the beginning of a sentence it either doesn't create a space, or it jumps two lines instead of one.

    Hey Manly

    I copy and paste my stuff from Word.

    What I do is go into the format > paragraph menu.

    In there, set the 'space after' as '12pt' and don't double space between verses. When you paste into the HP capsule, it leaves a nice space between your paragraphs that does not disappear. You may be able to set more than 12pt - I have never tried smile

    Not sure about the other things, dude.

      That's a good well. I'll try typing my stuff directly to Word and then transferring it over...rather than straight to Hub Text capsule...Thanks for that, Sufidreamer

    Yeah, I either copy from Word or Notepad. But Paul Deeds once asked me if I was copying from Word and pasting into the text editor, because it might have been causing problems. The text capsule couldn't save the text. But I hadn't had problems with it before. I know that if I copy text from Word and paste it into my Blogger post editor...big problems!

    One wish I have is the Drop letter option. You know, at the beginning of a Hub, I would love to be able have the very first letter, drop below the others. big_smile I think it leaves such a nice looking effect.

    Yeah, I've thought about the same thing, but sometimes on my blog I put the first word or two in bold, and that kind of works, but not as well.
