I'm trying to publish a poem. The way I formatted it is...
....and so on
But when I save it, it comes out looking like...
Line1 Line 2 Line 3 Line 4
Line 5 Line 6 Line 7 Line 8
...and so on
If I try to edit it, I go to where "Line 1" is supposed to end, and I hit "return", But that only makes "Line 2" go two full lines under "Line 1".
What's up with that? I saved it in both Word and Note pad and got the same result.
I came to this question because I have the same question, but I think for a different reason. I do know HTML inside and out, so it's not a problem of knowledge in my case.
None of the formatting buttons in the text editor work for me. They'll bold or italicize temporarily, but then when I save or publish the hub, the formatting disappears. Similarly, I included one link and it disappeared when I published.
Plus, when I try to edit the HTML, and put in something like a line break (br) tag, which is supposedly in the very small set of HTML permitted-- it doesn't save. Instead, the br tags are stripped out entirely.
Basically, I have paragraphs, capital letters, and asterisks to do my formatting. This is more than a little frustrating, particularly since it looks like Hubpages should have the tools to make formatting work.
How about adding an html code <br> or just don't copy-paste, hit on enter every after line..I hope that helps

Have you considered adding a capsule for displaying html, php, and other types of programming code?An example of this can be found on vBulletin sites, which usually have a [code] block and a [php] block. This doesn't actually render the html or php, but does provide a little more control over...

I am struggling with learning about ebook formatting and am wondering, if you have published an ebook, exactly how you format your work. What fonts, allignment, etc. do you use or does it matter? Help and advice will be appreciated.

Twice I have lost content that I typed into my Hub. What could be the problem or what might I be doing wrong? I do save each time I write or edit.
