I copy my stuff in from MS Word and it comes out all crazy looking when I save it, paragraph spaces are gone, etc. Tried fixing in edit mode, unable. I do not have pics for my first hub, just text. Anyway to restore the Word format and is there a specific number of characters in a line?
You should paste your text from Word into a plain text editor like Notepad, which will strip off the hidden code that causes trouble. Then copy the text from Notepad and paste it into your text capsules on the hub. Make adjustments as appropriate.
Great advice Website Examiner. I have found that Notepad is the ONLY editor that will strip off the html code that creates the problem. The only thing that it does is create a double space between the paragraphs when I copy/paste into the HP editor, which is easily corrected.
Pasting text from Google docs too does not cause any issues for me. Works well all the time.
I use Notepad when I want to get rid of all formatting for one reason or another. I use WordPad for writing Hubs, though. The formatting stays when copied and pasted from WordPad into the text capsule; and I feel like I get a better feel for what it will look like by typing into WordPad.

I just lost my Hub twice due to the editor locking-up.I click on "save" and the editor disappears, but the screen stays grayed-out and unresponsive. When I try to refresh the page to get anything to respond, it asks if I really want to leave or stay.If I say "stay", it remains...

I just deleted an hours work, I think by pressing "X" instead of "Save" on a text capsule by mistake. It's easy to do this if you aren't concentrating. There isn't a confirmation either, although there is if the delete icon is clicked on a saved module outside of the text module...
