I just thought I'd share this, in case anybody else pastes into hubs directly from Google docs.
Apart from the weird spacing thing that seems to be typical of pasting from many word processors, if you paste from Google docs the second space following each full-stop vanishes at the end of each sentence, all the way through. Something I've only just noticed.
Can I be bothered to go back through the last 30 hubs or so and add all these extra spaces in, probably not. But it is quite annoying.
Just a heads up.
I have noticed this as well. However, whilst I use the double spacing after a full stop but many websites don't use double spaces after the full stop (eg BBC News online).
Thanks for posting this Mr V. I need to check it out. My Word is screwed up.
My pleasure, my computer died a month or so back, and all my software vanished. I'm not sure if you already use Google Docs or plan to check it out, but if it's the latter it's actually pretty good, and I haven't missed Word at all, plus you can access your documents from anywhere which is very handy.
Just watch out for those vanishing spaces.
Would it be best to paste into say, Notepad before pasting into Hubs? fix it while in NP then paste
Hey Dame Scribe, I guess you could do that, that may solve the issue, I'm not sure, I haven't yet tried, but it could be worth looking into.
Although having to go through two seperate word processors before creating a hub is a little complicated for what should be a simple cut&paste process, hmmmmmmmm.
Anyways it's not a major concern I guess, I can live with it, just thought I'd let others know.
nope, my word pad spaces are always messed up. It must not be a huge deal, I never noticed your spaces lacking. But then I don't double space since I got out of high school! I hate it when the line spacing gets messed up and you have to go back thru and hit backspace ctrl/enter.
Perhaps I'm behind the times, perhaps the second space following a full-stop has been done away with. I'm not really a grammar Nazi, but as grammar is not one of my strong points, I try and keep an eye on it when I can.
But there's no way I'm going back through and adding them all back in, lol, no chance what-so-ever.

Hello,I am going to travel for three weeks. I use Word for my articles and have a old Gateway. I am interested in purchasing a new laptop but thinking about getting a Chromebook because of costs. With a Chromebook, I am forced to use Google Docs. Any thoughts or advice?

Anyone who uses Firefox have trouble copying and pasting inside a hub capsule?When I use Internet Explorer, I have no problems with the copying and pasting into the hubs capsule, but when I use Firefox, I do? Is it that Firefox is not compatible with the hub capsule?

As some of you may remember last week I asked if you used a Chromebook or laptop. I ended up buying a Chromebook. I will be traveling for 3 weeks. Now, I'd need to know about using a Cloud and such: Which is better Google Docs or MS 365?
