Just joined the hub and expected to be able to copy & paste from Word as with other similar sites.
Can't see a link in the text box so I just tried and the text went haywire.
Am I missing something? I really can't bare to write my post again!
I'm sure there must be a way and hope one of you kind folks can help me out?
Hi Bob, welcome.
I don't know what others do, but after I paste the text, I highlight it and then convert it to paragraph text using the drop down menu at the top of the text box. Sometimes I have to click format or something else first and then go back and click paragraph.
Maybe some of the seasoned pros have an easier solution.
in hubpages text editir, when you press ctrl+v for pasting your text you 'll see a pop up window asking you to post your there..to avoid this pop up just right click your mouse in the text field and select paste ..thats it..just give it a try..you 'll understand
Wow! I never thought of that! BTW, that little window thingy only pops up if you're using Firefox. If you want to paste with all coding included (links, etc.), it's best to use IE.
As far as formatting, sometimes it will show funny in the edit window even after you reformat it to paragraph, but if you save and preview it, it looks fine. I guess saving puts the format changes into effect.
I generally just type it all in here, unless I'm copying and pasting from somewhere else, then I use IE, so it will come out just as it was.

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?

I have had several issues with people copying and pasting my content- ALL OF IT-I have tried to warn a few hunters that I have found they have copied and pasted (per copy scape) and they have made a whole website full of copied and pasted content from HubPages and elsewhere. This seems...

I am new to hubpages and would greatly appreciate some advice. I have a lot of papers written for various classes that I would like to turn into hubs but I can't figure out how to simply copy past things from a word document to a text capsule. When I do, it makes each paragraph one line so there...

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...

Do you use the text capsules directly to write hubs or do you use word and then copy paste?or do you use some other application?
