Summary0014936: simplify the lorem ipsum (sample text)
Descriptionthe 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.

in my eyes, if somebody needs a one time different lorem ipsum, it will be more comfortable to switch to the browser for that specific task (and copy paste the text from the internet) instead having to "ok"-click the dialog each time a standard text is needed.
