I thought I would lay article out in word...copy & paste it...but when I do all the indents and excell spread sheets are lost or messed up...what is the secred to using word then copy and pasting?
You need to read the Learning Center info on creating hubs.
I use Word for creating hubs, but only to make the initial article. I don't use it for formatting, other than deciding where I'm going to create a new text capsule. After I create the text in Word, I copy the contents of what will be one text capsule into Notepad ( I do it this way, because I can see in Word how many Words I have selected in that copy). Then I go to Notepad and do Ctrl+A to capture everything I've just copied into Notepad. I use Notepad to remove any stray characters that may interfere with formatting in the hub. I do Ctrl+X to grab it (cut it). Then I go over to the open and empty text capsule and do Ctrl+V to paste it. I do all formatting in the text capsule. As for Excel spreadsheets, those would be table capsules, as far as I know.
I use MS Word to write a hub because I'm familiar with its features. Like Healthy Pursuits, I do the final formatting in hub capsules. MS Word and hub capsules are not compatible in how they treat formatting and special characters, so copy/pasting from Word to a hub capsule is asking for trouble if you expect the formatting to remain the same.
I like Healthy Pursuits' reasons for copying Word text into Notepad ... that removes all of Word's proprietary formatting so that there's nothing left to cause problems in a capsule. But it's an extra step I don't take. After so many years of living with Word, I know where the problem places are and simply avoid them. For example, I don't use Word's ellipses, smart quotes, bullets, numbering, indents, or tables. I suspect that Healthy Pursuit and I put equal amounts of time into formatting a hub capsule starting from Word, we just have slightly different approaches.
Long story short, there's no way to retain all Word formatting when copying to hub capsules, so you'll have to do your final formatting in the capsules.
thanks a lot I appreciate it... I have 9 pages I'm trying to post
I use open office and never had a problem copying docs to the site..
Interesting...maybe I ought to get with the times.
I hadn't heard of this, but it'll probably take me a couple of years to make the change, if you know what I mean. I'm so used to office and all its quirks and foibles that I'd probably have that lost soul feeling when I made a change.
Yes, I'd feel a loss, too. So I guess I'll put off the switch for a couple of years, like you. Maybe we can drive off the canyon wall together when the time comes.
I really appreciate everyone's suggestions! But nothing I seem to do works.
I have 9 pages of text and 1 excell chart...perfectly written...using microsoft word...and no matter what I try to do...I cannot copy & paste to a cell/hub without loosing all the great BOLD print...indents...centering...etc.!
Do the designers of the hub just NOT want us to draft the text in another software then copy & paste?
Does anyone have any more suggestions...or do I just have to waste my time and redo it all in the capsule?
I guess I really do get upset with a site that is technology deficient!
It is like working with a third world cite...that is just not really ready for 2012!
Sorry all you wonderful people...that is how this beginner feels!!!

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have...

Do you use the text capsules directly to write hubs or do you use word and then copy paste?or do you use some other application?

When I was working on a hub earlier today, I saved the capsules and clicked the done editing button, but the text didn't actually save, so I had to retype everything into the capsules.This has happened several times...
