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 are basically just 4 lines that are each like 150 words long. What is the simplest way to get a word document into a text capsule without screwing up the format like that?
Thanks in advance!
Three options -
1. Save it as a .txt file to get rid of Word formatting, and paste it in the capsule as unformatted text.
2. Use "control V", which pops up another window (or at least it does in Firefox after you give it permission to do so for HubPages), and when you paste into that window, it strips out all the Word fomatting that confuses the text capsule. After you hit the "insert" button, it looks just fine.
3. When you do have messy formatting in a capsule, go into edit mode, select everything, and choose "Paragraph" from the drop-down formatting box.
I have solved every such problem I have had by doing one of those three things.

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?
