I’ve found out, that most of the time I waste with figuring out demo texts for my mockups. That’s why I really appreciated the placeholder text (line of text, block of text) you’ve recently introduced (especially the possibility to quickly draw them holding the [T] key).
But using these in conjunction with controls like e.g. the data grid is a pain, as I always have to move around the placeholder texts after making changes to the grid’s column configuration (adding columns, changing widths and so on). Further on I have to group the data grid with all the placeholder texts to keep them together.
It would be great if there would be a notation to produce placeholder text in any text control like the data grid, tree control, checkbox, text input and so on. For example a sequence of – lets say – at least 5 question marks could produce a placeholder text. Adding more question marks could make the placeholder text longer.
Thanks and keep up the great work.
