Using Jabberwocky

Post by Jan Bud » 05 Apr 2019, 20:36

I can't find how to actually use jabberwocky. Looking up my old Q 5 manual, there's info that is now obsolete. For Q2018, there's nothing in the knowledgebase, and if I do an advanced search in the forum, there's either nothing or 300+ items for older version crashes - life's too short to view 300+ items... Can someone kindly let me know how to use this Extension. It's installed and active in my Q2017, probably 2018 as well, but I can't see how to use it!

Create a text box, then go to Utilities - Insert Placeholder Text.
That's all.

One can also create a text box, right-click and use the Insert Filler Text.

The old Jabberwocky was much more fun.
