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
