New Contest! The Case of the Missing Placeholder Text
Hey folks, it’s time for another InDesign mystery that you can solve for a chance to win an awesome prize!
Here’s the scenario:
You sit down to work at a colleague’s computer. You want to insert some placeholder text into an empty text frame. So you select that text frame with the Selection tool and choose Type > Fill With Placeholder Text.
But at first, it looks like nothing changed.
It’s only when you show hidden characters that you can see what happened. Instead of filling with visible text, the entire frame is filled with spaces.
When you make a new document and repeat the procedure you get the same result—all spaces and no words.
Why is the placeholder text composed of just spaces?
