I was working for two days on my latest hub and it just needs a few minor corrections but when I am in edit mode and click on a capsule to edit text or edit Amazon capsule the whole hub turns gray and there is nothing I can do. It looks like it is hanging. It's been like this yesterday and today. What is it?
I have seen something similar on some Hubs I've been editing. In those cases, the edit capsule was actually floating very far down on the screen. I was able to retrieve it and work with it, but it wasn't in the spot where I normally saw it. Did you try looking everywhere on the screen?
Aficionada, yes, that's what happened but I was still unable to edit. I managed however to edit from my laptop this time so the problem is solved, I hope.
Thanks for help IzzyM but I think I only have a IE right now and am not a computer wizard to install another browser, I wish I were.
The nice thing about installing another browser is that it actually is not that hard to do. I don't have the site addresses to post here, but you could almost certainly run a search for "Firefox download" or "Chrome download" and find what you need. They make it totally user-friendly, in the sites I have found - they "talk" you through it step by step.
I've seen some funky things happening when I've been editing some of my hubs today. One wouldn't accept a group although it wasn't changed at all. And in general, things have been slow. The hubstaff may be making a lot of changes to incorporate the new stuff that they are setting up.
IE is the worst...and to think I used to use it all the time and didn't want to change because I was used to it!
Started here and tried Firefox first of all, because HP is optimized for Firefox and was delighted with it. No honestly you should try it, it's really good.
Then for some reason I experimented further and tried Google Chrome and I just love it. Spell checks and everything for you, and is super fast, faster than the others

I can't edit nor change text capsules. Each time I try to edit text capsules, the text freezes. The cursor for text doesn't work. Please change to the previous hubtool writing capsules where things worked. This new hubtool capsule is beyond ridiculous. ...

All day today (9/24), I've been editing a hub, and every time I click Preview I get a blank Preview box with no text or images. My hub is http://hubpages.com/hubtool/edit/3381417 . I use Firefox 15.0.1 on Windows XP.

When I edit inside a text capsule (in Edit mode) and then save, I find whole lines and even sometimes paragraphs have been underlined. I then have to go back in and select that portion to turn off the underline. It can get time consuming having to keep going back to turn the underlining off. Anyone...

How do I delete an unpublished hub?

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...

Today I noticed that when I click on the 'go right' arrow in Amazon capsules, it brings me to the top of the page and I have to scroll down to the capsule again to click on the 'go up' arrow to place it next to a text capsule. Is this a glitch/bug? I can't recall I had this problem earlier and...
