Add placeholder text / Lorem ipsum

  1. Default Add placeholder text / Lorem ipsum

    Does anyone know how to add placeholder text in Illustrator? I know it can be done in ID, but I haven't been able to find it in Illustrator. I know I could copy & paste, but I'd like to see if there's a better route. I checked scripting forums as well, but was unable to find anything. Thanks!

    THere is no such a thing in Illustrator.

    I have a TextEdit file containing placeholder text on my hard drive. I Place it in a pre-drawn area text block whenever I need it. Takes maybe 2 seconds longer than a script.

    (In my case, the 2 seconds is insignificant. Were I doing this all day, it might matter more. Then again, were I doing this all day....)

    I have a big snippet of placeholder text in TextExpander.

    When I want a load of Lorem Ipsum, I just type lorips and the following text pops into place in front of the flashing text cursor, in any app:Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Nullam ornare dictum ligula. Maecenas elementum suscipit nisl. Cras imperdiet leo ac felis dictum luctus. Pellentesque odio nisi, accumsan nec, scelerisque sed, consectetuer nec, justo.
