What is this when I use the PS text tool?
Not sure when it started, some months ago but whenever I use the text tool now, I get it filled with default text. Its not a huge issue as I can then just over type what I actually need. It would however be good to know how to get rid and better still why it started doing this and what it all means.
The text reads “orem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, eiusmod sed tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Quis ipsum suspendisse ultrices” witch translates to some equall gibberish of “I pray in a ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, sed tempor and vitality, so that the labor and sorrow, some important things to eiusmod. Who itself to suspend basketball” using Google translate.

Cheers
Ant

It's the new default for Photoshop - it fills area type with sample text.

Lorem Ipsum, as it's known, is placeholder text that designers have been using for decades (I used to have Letraset sheets of the stuff) to simulate text in a dummy layout. It's used instead of real text to stop the client trying to read it and getting distracted.

You can read about it here.

Thanks, Steve, Interesting and good to know it wasn’t something I was doing or had done wrong at some point.

This is going to be version dependent but from my latest 2020 here is the type options dialogue.

I offer the infamous bacon ipsum:

Bacon ipsum dolor amet pig hamburger sausage spare ribs beef ribs prosciutto ham hock meatball turducken leberkas chicken pork belly boudin cupim. Venison meatball short loin flank alcatra. Rump sirloin kevin pork belly porchetta strip steak. Bresaola bacon jowl leberkas, venison cow burgdoggen tri-tip pork chop rump t-bone turducken meatball frankfurter.

I have a fondness for Lorem Ipsum... I've confused a lot of friends on facebook.
