Summary 0014936: [PATCH] simplify the lorem ipsum (sample text)
Revision 2017-08-04 07:40 by ale
Description the current implementation of the sample text gives too much choices at insert time.

the sample text should be directly inserted by the "content > sample text" command and no dialog shown.

proposed changes:

- reduce the number of languages presented:
  - the "standard" lorem ipsum for all latin language (the default choice).
  - one sample text for each (type of) language that is not based on the latin alphabet.
  - a free text where one can paste her own text.
- the choice between those options is done in the preferences / document settings.
- the other options in the dialog can probably be replaced by a new "fit the text in the frame" option.
- if the frame is selected, the text is replaced, if the text is being edited, the text is added at the cursor.

i will update this description based on the comments in this ticket.
