Lorem Ipsum Generator Tool
« on: June 13, 2011, 02:45:10 AM »
This is a small add-on tool that you can copy to your hard drive and add to your Tools menu in HippoEdit if you'd like.  It's a simple Lorem Ipsum text generator that allows you to select up to 10 paragraphs of text to generate (it's always the same), and then copy them to the clipboard and close the window by clicking a button.   It's free for anyone to use as you see fit.  There was a lorem ipsum generator in my last editor and I did use it a fair amount so I figured it would be nice to have one available in HE:

He, thanks for your contribution. I need such random text often too.

Some facts on the file:

Virus free: virustotal.com


Usage: just unzip and execute. Chose amount of paragraphs and copy to clipboard. Then past into HippoEDIT.

You can add this app as an tool into HE to launch it as needed. But since the output is always the same with no changes and provides no different output layouts, you can also use HippoEDITs code template (or f.ex. simply an text file to call as tool) with such content.
Or you can use an online tool as http://www.lipsum.com/ which provides more output layouts (like PSPad editor does too btw)


What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text like:

Quote
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,
Integer turpis neque, fermen
Pellentesque habitant morbi
Aenean commodo eros a nibh
Quisque ac augue auctor eros
Donec augue dolor, lobortis

Why do we use it?
Just to have some content for manipulation-tests, or to use as preview-content with web sides.
