Underlining problem

    Hello anyone,

    With my last 3 hubs I published  when I inserted the text  it seems to randomly underline a few paragraphs without my input. Its simple to remedy I know but I was wondering why it does this?

    Hey Penny, I published a new about 2 days ago and didn't have any problem. It might be a browser issue.

    Try closing your browser, clearing your cache and restarting your browser. If that doesn't help, then shut your browser down, clear your cache and then shut your system down completely(do not use the restart function). Make sure you shut your system off. Wait a minute or two, then turn it back on.

    See if that helps. If not, then contact staff by email- Team@Hubpages.com

    Quicker to just try a different browser.

    Let me just say this because I've had people not understand:

    You can download and install Chrome, Firefox or Safari and install it.  As long as you do not say "Make this my default browser" (which they all will ask), you have not affected your other browser at all.

    You can then quickly check odd behavior by trying it in one of those.  I have a half dozen browsers on my computer - I seldom use anything but Chrome, but the rest are there if I need them.

    If the problem shows up in other browsers, it's a real site problem.  If it doesn't, you should then try everything Cags suggested.

    I have the same problem and it is not a browser problem but a software problem.  If you are using an older version of Word, for instance, this will happen.  All you have to do is edit the capsule again and remove the underlining.  Works every time!

      Good call - I missed that she is pasting.

        Keeping up with human technology is difficult for a fox.  I like that word "pasting."  I'm going to scribble that right now!

    Thank you all!!

    Last night I did try your solutions Cagsil and Pcunix and they didn't work. I use Chrome all the time and tried it in Explorer to no avail. Nevertheless I appreciate your help.

    It is more likely what you say Writer Fox as I am using an older version of word. A few seconds to undo the underling is all good. Thanks so much

    I had the same problem yesterday. I closed firefox then open chrome, but still couldn't solve the problem. I edited the text then, removed all the underlines and the text in other paragraphs began sticking to each other. So I unpublished my hub and gave up sad

    Here's the method:  Type the text in the Text Box.  Save.  Look at the saved text.  If there is underlining and bad spacing, open the text box again and make the changes.  Save again.  This should clear everything.  In other words, don't "Publish" and then edit again.

    Also, Word is really overkill for Hubs.   Word is for books, not this kind of stuff.

    On Mac, I'd use TextEdit.  On Windows, Wordpad. 

    Smaller, faster, less problems.  Unfortunately, Microsoft deliberately leaves spellcheck out of Wordpad (they want you to use Word), but that's easily remedied elsewhere.

    I either type directly in the hub or I use a simple text editor (notepad on windows, gedit or tomboy notes on ubuntu).

    Causes less trouble than using fancy word processors. Back when I did use Word, I'd copy paste my work into notepad first and then from there copy paste into hubpages. I'd then compare the word and hubpages versions to see what I needed to add (bolds, italics, underline). Way more work than simply writing it as text and then editing as I look over it naturally.

      A Linux user?

      Darn.  I guess I will have to add you to that "Following" list just on the basis of obvious intelligence :-)
