With all the emphasis on optimizing the platform for mobile users, because "that's how the majority reads today..." I found a bit that absolutely does not work.
I was using my Kindle today, and I was able to log in, edit photo capsules to full width, change text. What I absolutely could not do, was make any changes to, or add captions to photos. The cursor simply would not go there!
I found that strange.
I have a related problem on my iPad. I can type in a caption for a new photo, but once I click "Save" I can no longer edit the caption. I can't edit the captions on old photos, either.

Sorry, folks--this is getting old for me, too.Ok, today's problem is with my first photo on my current in-progress hub,(actually a sketch I did). There are internal captions within the sketch, and no matter how much I tried to 'stretch' the text capsule with extra words, (and yes, added...

Picture captions, alt tags and image attribution are a mess on HP.Why not introduce a new capsule solely for captions and attribution, entirely separate from the picture and its alt tag?When a hubber uploads a picture, tell them to add an alt tag. It should be the simplest description of the...
