    This may have been suggested, but I couldn't find it by doing a search.

    It would be nice and a little more efficient to be able to add multiple capsules of a certain type at once.

    For example, if I already have an idea for a hub layout, I know that I want five text capsules, three photo capsules and two amazon capsules, I could type a number in and add these all at once.  Then I can move them around once they are there.

    This function is the main thing I miss from Squidoo (although, I much prefer HubPages).

    Once you have one set up that way, every hub after that can use that once as the template.  You have that option now.  I have a pretty routine format and I always chose that hub that has that format as the template.

      I have not used the templates enough, I suppose as I am still learning and trying out new things.  Perhaps the ability to save more than one specific template, then, instead of trying to remember which hub to pick?

        - The templates work on "unpublished" also , so you could create a few varieties of layout for yourself personally

        Ive always been really happy with hubpages for making this feature happen

          Hey, thanks a million, sunforged! smile

          I didn't know that it worked on unpublished.  That solves the problem altogether!

    Maybe I should clarify.  When you're setting up your hub it gives you the option between several template layouts.  The last one is a template option that allows you to choose the same layout as any of your previously published hubs.

      Thanks for that info. I haven't used that layout yet but was wondering about it.

    I always use the first template and then before I start doing anything I add in the capsules of text that I will need, the photo capsules, etc. then I rearrange them and reorder using the sidebar.

    I hadn't noticed if it worked on unpublished or not so I'm glad sunforged was able to clarify that.
