Why do capsules float around when you're trying to write?

    OK, that's the question. I select "Edit" and try to load a photo. Or I select "Edit" and try to write some text. As I move the cursor, the capsule floats off to the left or away to the bottom of the page and it almost gets lost. Pulling it back up into view is almost impossible. When it is in view, positioning the cursor is often virtually impossible. The capsule floats away and I can't enter text. Any ideas why this happens or how to stop it? I've managed to write a few pages but I would have written fifty times more if it weren't so hard to enter text!

      If you open just one capsule at a time and allow it to stay centered you shouldn't have any problems, when more then one capsule is open then they tend to float. On occassion I have had the same issue so only one capsule at a time should do it. smile

    have you tried writing your hub text first in a word document?
    I find this much easier and then you copy/paste the document into your texts.

    I used to have the problems you describe at times, but not any longer since I switched to copy/paste.

    also, maybe you have too many programs open in your browser? hmm
    if you close programs while you're writing, it may help.

      Yes, I agree.  Copy/paste is the answer.  Too much chance of losing your writing by doing it directly in the text capsule.
