    Up until about a week ago I still had the option when editing my  hubs to re-order capsules by clicking on them in the right hand box of the screen and dragging them up or down to the position I preferred them to be in within the hub, before then selecting the option to save the changes. This 'box' has vanished now and I can no longer move capsules around unless I literally use the 'up' arrow to move them step by step into the right position. Does anyone know why this is and how I get back the box that allows me to re-order capsules en-mass please?

      The option is still in the right-side column. Just click on "reorder" - right above the keywords.

        Perfect answer, I just went back into edit mode on my most recent hub and found out where it had gone after following your advice. Cheers, this solves the mystery.

    Hi - once you get use to the 'new' system I think it speeds up making a hub. 

    To me it seems easier and quicker to use the right side arrow to place/add a new capsule where you want it, and the 'controls' to re-order etc. at the side are OK too.

    I like that option too. Being able to move capsules from the right hand box and save. I cant even even Delete a capsule now! and my hub looks horrible. sad  what is up with that?! tongue I vote for put the old version back, lol smile

    I must admit I prefer the old version too. Another thing that has changed is that before if I scrolled down a hub I was writing and the top of the hub itself was no longer on my screen, the option to add various capsules, text, photo, links, ebay etc would appear across the top of my screen instead. This was great as it saved me having to return to the top of the hub each time I wanted to add a new capsule. Now when I scroll down a hub I am writing I no longer get those options appearing across the top of my screen. Is there an answer to this too???

      I think they got rid of that because they made the option to add a capsule from right where you are. There are arrows to the left of the screen. You can click to add a new capsule and it should add right where you're pointing.

      It's not 100% accurate though.

        Thanks Whitney, just tried it and it works, but I would never have known the option was on the left if you hadn't told me.

          Thanks from me also Whitney! I was wondering about the moving arrow. I like the look and feel of the new system. smile

    Ditto. I thought the capsule option was the best feature among all the other sites out there too. The new version has good features and is good - but change is tough. I'm just glad things seem to work on this site!  Yeaaaaa!
