    Could this facility be added to Q&A,  just like in the text capsule editor? The ability to add a photo would be useful also.

      Hi eugbug, it sounds like this is a bug. Could you let me know which question this is happening on?

        Hi Christy, I fixed the answer to the question by reverting to the standard character set. However I've posted a test question and answer here:

        https://owlcation.com/stem/Solving-Proj … Ballistics

        I used the Greek lower case letters alpha, beta, gamma and delta both from the Unicode character set and Windows Greek character set. On my computer, they show up as question marks when the hub is viewed, but on the Q&A page, they display ok (see screen grab).

    Just added lots of Greek letters from Character Map but they don't seem to be supported.

    ....the strange thing is letters appear ok on the https://hubpages.com/my/hubs/qanda page, but not on a hub proper in the Q&A section.

    ....but in the body of a hub, they appear fine.

    I thought HP had killed Q&A. Where is it?

      It's a beta program that started last year. Readers can ask questions and the Q&As are posted on hubs on the niche sites.

        I don't see anything like that on my hubs. Is this referring to the Contact Author feature? Actually, I'm not too thrilled with that big_smile

        And if it is not referring to Contact Author, but something else even more invasive/interactive; I'd be even less thrilled with that. big_smile

        @HP Please keep that off my hubs. And for that matter, get rid of the Contact Author thing as well.
