Chapter 19. Importing and Editing Text > Creating Placeholder Text

Creating Placeholder Text

InDesign makes it easy to create placeholder text when you’re creating a preliminary layout: First, either place an insertion point in a text frame with the Type tool, or select one or more text frames with the Selection tool. Then choose Fill with Placeholder Text from the Type menu or the context menu. Dummy text fills the frames, and continues through any threaded frames.

If you don’t like the “lorem ipsum” placeholder text InDesign uses, you can create your own by saving a text-only file with the name “placeholder.txt” in your InDesign application folder.
