Lorem Ipsum for Adobe XD

Lorem Ipsum for Adobe XD logo

Lorem Ipsum for Adobe XD: A small plugin to insert placeholder text that fits your needs: As simple as you want it to be, yet as advanced as you need it to be…

It is as easy as selecting one or more text layer(s) and running the plugin from the plugin’s menu. Alternatively, you can also use the keyboard shortcut “Ctrl+Alt+L” on Windows or “Cmd+Option+L” on macOS to run the plugin.

Last but not least: I’m always happy to listen to feedback. Therefore, if you have any (may it be feature requests, bug reports or something else), please let me know via the support website, and I’ll see how I can accommodate your wishes.

Can I use custom (user-defined) placeholder texts?

Unfortunately, this is not supported at this point in time. However, this is high on my list of feature requests and should be available soon.

Is this the same as the placeholder text functionality in the Text Toolbox?

Yes and no. It uses the same technology, and updates get included in the Text Toolbox. However, Lorem Ipsum for Adobe XD provides some more features like presets easily accessible from the plugin’s menu or an option to skip the dialog and use the previously used settings to insert text.

Why does the plugin only generate two words?

Two words get “used” by the plugin if you have a point text (since I don’t have any bounds to base the text length on). If you use area text (see https://helpx.adobe.com/xd/help/drawing-text-tools.html#text-tools for an explanation of the difference of point- and area text in Adobe XD), the number of words will fit to match the text area’s bounds.
