    When your looking to create a back up of your published Hubpages, you dont have to do anything quite so time intensive as "copying and pasting" to word or notepad or whatever.

    1. Open Selected Hub
    2. Scroll to bottom
    3. Find "Print" (next to share, usually above comments when included)
    4. This will create a print friendly version of the page sans adsense and other affiliate modules
    5. optional - exclude images, this will include only your text
    6. Now select "save to pdf"

    Voila, a 2 click backup procedure

    Thank, even though it's on every hub, you tend to miss it unless someone points it out to you.
    I used a different solution to backup my hubs. It might be a good way for someone with a lot of hubs to capture at once.
    Install scrapbook plugin for firefox.
    Go to your my account hubpage
    Select scrapbook->capture page as
    Select one link down capture
    This will then save each of your hubs to your computer.

      The scrapbook plugin is cool, it does the same function as "save page as"
      which will allow one to view the page offline and it allows you to do this in bulk.

      It doesnt really create a manageable text backup though as one would still have to go through the .htm file and separate text from the rest of the code.

      Or are their features Im not seeing?

        You are right that it does not generate clean text. I see it as just a quick and dirty way to create a backup, from this I can extract the text if needed.

    This pdf thing is pretty cool. Could you put them all in 1 pdf file, so I have all my hubs together like a little booklet?

    Now I always type my hubs in words first and then copy-paste them into hubs. But whenever I edit them, i have to edit both the words document and the hub. Lots of work smile
