I was wondering how I can insert automatically generated pseudo text to check the general document format settings. I know this kind of feature from other office suites but I can't remember how it was used except for that I had to type a certain string of characters or going via the insert menu bar.

What I'm looking for is something like: Menu -> Insert -> Pseudo Text

And would get something like:

To summarize the answers given by karolus, horst and peirre-yves samyn:

I was looking for the term "AutoText" (see also respective LO help) which enables someone to insert a great variety of different text categories. This can be found via.. the menu entries:

Edit and then AutoText which opens the AutoText settings menu window.

I was specifically looking for the lorem+F3 shortcut.



Using bt + F3 gives indeed the following error:

btF3 does not work in my LO4.4.4. Try "Lorem" and F3. This gives you the Lorem Ipsum.

@karolus - shortcuts depend on locale (DT in English, TEX in French ). LOREM (Latin) remains LOREM.

To find them EditAutoText unfold the Category (e.g. Standard)
