I don't know if this has been brought up in the past, but I would LOVE to be able to place some of the capsules in the center side of some of the text blocks! It isn't always a nice layout to have them all default to the top. It would be so lovely to drag-and-drop them along the right side wherever they best fit in. The aesthetics of hubpages would improve dramatically.
Hi, i only began 2 days ago and figured out yesterday the same thing jenny just mentioned. i had all my text in one "capsule", and i simply took each section and placed them in separate text capsules, and added another image, then you can use the capsule moving thing in the right column to "re-order" the sections quickly, then see what the changes look like. this is a great feature. it's inspring me to write more hub pages. best of luck to you, too.
You can achieve this effect by using multiple text boxes, instead of putting all your text in one text box. Just break the text between two text boxes at the point where you want the new capsule to sit.
If you aren't sure exactly where you're going to want the capsule, and you want to be able to float the capsule up and down easily, just put each paragraph in its own text box.
I wrote about the technique here http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Create-a … ive-Design
Jenny, I used your suggestion and it worked beautifully! Thanks for pointing out the obvious, I just wasn't thinking creatively enough to get there myself! I appreciate it!!!
Thanks for the link, Lissie. It helps me to understand the capsules better.
After reading your hub Lissie it has all become clear. I haven't spent much time with the layout of my hubs so far, but now feel that I have to go back and sort them out!

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...
