Would you like to be able to write Hubs offline?
I don't know about you, but I would like to be able to download an app for my iPad or laptop that would allow me to write hubs without an internet connection. I know that you can use word for the bulk of it, but wouldn't it be nice to be able to save the correct format even when you don't have internet access?
That would be a dream for me, since we have limited internet.
I have limited internet too. A downloadable template would be wonderful! I write in notepad or word pad but it is sometimes difficult to see how the layout should look. Especially when adding right text capsules, polls, and photos.
I write all of mine off line, then just copy and paste and upload images. I'm familiar enough about the format of hubpages that it only takes moments to do.
It's just my opinion, but I feel it would be a waste of the limited resources of hubpages staff to create something to save only a few extra clicks.
I see what you mean. It would be good to be able to format exactly the way you want before uploading it.
In many cases the formatting doesn't 'fit' with the flow that we may have established in the hub, and sometimes the photo capsules don't always play ball, with the way we would like them to display the images.
I suppose the easiest way is to make a mock up or dummy hubpage using WORD and work around that.
I may just take my own advice and do this myself.
Thanks for the thought provoker.
I write everything in WORD, then cut and paste into the appropriate capsules. Works like a charm.
I use word, but then I just copy it into my HTML editor to format it and that saves me tons of time and frustration. But yes an app like that would be a good thing.
I don't mind doing it online, it is very rare I'd sit down to write an article without an internet connection. That said, I wish there was a way to align our pictures left sometimes, instead of everything being aligned right all the time! I want a bit of variation in my design.

Do you feel it's just plain rude for a hubber not to follow you back?

Another has been a member 21 months, has written no hubs, has 294 posts and has a dozen followers.I...

How do I write hubs that get more views?I think I write about good topics and my hubs get views, but not a lot. Sometimes I edit my titles a few times to see what works. How do I invite more views to my hubs? Where can I share them to get more views besides Facebook and Twitter?

I like to check Hubpages on breaks at work. Now, I can't access my Hub feed because a Hubber chose to write a Hub about drugs, and Hubpages hasn't caught onto it yet. My organization is pretty fair on what it blocks/allows. Usually blocks things about gun violence, cults, and drugs. They also only...
