Anyone else experiencing trouble when adding/editing text in capsules? Started yesterday, ignored it initially. As it hasn't cleared up, I though I'd ask.
Text is 'sticking' - as soon as I click the drop down box to format, insert a header etc either the 'sorry something has gone wrong' or 'are you sure you want to navigate away from this page' box pops up.
I can copy/paste text from word but once it's in the text capsule, I can't. And my cursor won't move unless I click elsewhere several times.
Glitch or me?
Thankyou in advance
well I've had some weird stuff happening. The other day mine, as well as others, text was really small when I tried to edit but that seemed to have cleared up. When I try to fill a text capsule, the box will jump back up to the start so that I can't see what or where I'm typing. I've gotten the 'sorry' message a couple times lately too. Who knows? But...it isn't just you! lol
Hi Janetta, Frogdropping,
I am trying to reproduce your issue.
Which browser/os are you using? (Firefox/Windows, Safari/Mac, IE/Windows 7, etc.)
Does this problem happen every time or does it only happen once in a while?
Did you do a copy-and-paste before the problem occurred?
Hi Larry, I'm having the same problem in the quote box, letters missing, lines freezing, sometimes the box lurches and my cursor cuts out, page will scroll slightly by itself, for the last two or three days or so.
Which browser/OS are you using?
Also, does this happen every time or only once in a while? Did you try dooing a shift+refresh (holding the shift key down when you click on the browser refresh button)?
Also, I want to make sure that I am understanding your problem correctly. When you say "quote box", do you mean the text capsule?
Never happened prior to yesterday. Been using IE and on Windows Vista - am still learning the ropes with FF.
It was bad this morning. Tried again later but no change. About two hours ago the same. So I came away. Left it a bit and this last hour have managed to finish a publish a hub.
No idea if it will start again.
To be honest, it's almost as if the cursor commands (don't know what else to call it - no teckno-geek here) go haywire or the capsule software isn't reading the signals correctly.
Sorry if that doesn't help.
Thanks for the additional info. I tested it out on IE 7/Vista and the text editor worked fine for me.
You might also want to do a shift+refresh if you haven't already (hold the shift key down when you click on the browser refresh button).
Which version of IE are you using? You can find out by selecting "About Internet Explorer" in the Help Menu.

I'm still having problems saving text capsules that have links in them.I've been having the problem for months now. Every now and then I can't save text capsules that have contextual links within the capsule. I'm using Firefox and I've tried Safari today. I can only get it to work most of the time...

When I was working on a hub earlier today, I saved the capsules and clicked the done editing button, but the text didn't actually save, so I had to retype everything into the capsules.This has happened several times lately and a number of times throughout my HP times. I'm not sure if it's a fluke...

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?

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have supplementary information that would be useful for the reader, they just can't be fitted...

"Techo" Matt,This has been happening for some time on all of my hubs.When I open a Text Capsule and copy and paste content in, it does not show the text until I hit Save. EXAMPLE:I published a poetry hub today and had the title in the content I pasted into the text...

I am working on a new hub. I have a capsule that is probably too long and I would like to add a callout in the middle of it but I can't get it to do that. Is there a way to do that?
