  • Create a text box for the main text area and fill “Lorem ipsum dolor sit.” This is dummy copy text often used to show font face samples, for page layout and design as sample layout text by printers, graphic designers, Web designers, people creating Microsoft Word templates, and many other uses. It mimics the look of real text quite well as you design and set up your page layout.  You can copy it from here:  http://websitetips.com/articles/copy/lorem/
