Download Lorem Ipsum Extension (3kb Zip File - for TopStyle 4)

This extension for the TopStyle editor will give you the ability to dynamically generate lorem ipsum placeholder text. After downloading and installing the files a button will be added to your HTML toolbar.

  1. Download and unzip the files into C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\\TopStyle\4.0\HtmlToolbar\Common You can paste files into whichever subfolder you prefer. The subfolders correspond with the tabs on the HTML toolbar.
  2. Open the _folderinfo.txt file and add the following text on a new line without the quotes: "Loremipsum"
  3. Open TopStyle and you should now have a Lorem ipsum button on your HTML toolbar.

Alternate method using the clip library/snippets

If you don't like using the HTML toolbar or if you have TopStyle 3, here is an alternate way to generate lorem ipsum text.

  1. Create a new item in the clip library, called Lorem ipsum
  2. In the Insert before caret field paste the following text:
    • Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat. Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis autem vel eum iriure dolor in hendrerit in vulputate velit esse molestie consequat, vel illum dolore eu feugiat nulla facilisis at vero eros et accumsan et iusto odio dignissim qui blandit praesent luptatum zzril delenit.
  3. Click OK to save
  4. You can now configure your clip/snippet as a quick insert, which makes it easy to add to a page.

The only drawback to this method as compared to the toolbar button, is that you cannot specify the amount of placeholder text.
