    Sorry - saw another thread on this but can't find it now...
    We used to be able to insert a background color in text capsules - and it adds a nice emphasis in shorted capsules such as quotations, and short "asides". I can't ind a button or whatever to do this now - maybe not looking in the right spot? Is this no longer available?

    When selecting capsules in edit mode you can select “callout” for the uses you mentioned. I think the background is grey and don’t think you can select a color.

      Thank again, Rochelle - I think I've got it now, thanks to your message. Also, I found a thread on correct usage which was very helpful.
      Embarrassing, but I had seen the thread on callouts before, but had no idea what they were. Then I found a thread about that too LOL
      Thanks again.

    That's right, Rochelle. Grey it is. Then, there is the classic, which is a white background,  and a quote format.

      Don't feel bad. I've been here for 8 years and only found out how to use a callout capsule last year. I never tried it out to see what it was.

    Well, thanks again - I've been away from HP for a while and just getting back this last few months. Looking to optimize my existing articles. The ones on the vertical sites certainly do better than the rest. But that's off topic smile
    Found the callout capsule - I've seen it used on other articles of people I follow, and it's sure nifty way to add emphasis.
