The plugin adds a random text generator, capable of creating witty texts in different genres. Created text can be inserted newly at the caret, or replace a selection.
The dummy text generator is added to the main menu, tools menu and into the generate... popup (Alt+Insert).

The plugin allows to choose from several genres:
  • Culinary Inspirations
  • Esoteric Wisdom
  • Fake Latin (similar to "Lorem Ipsum" blindtext)
  • Pirate Lingo
  • Science Fiction

When replacing a multi-lined selection of text, the generated dummy text maintains the amount of lines. When replacing a selection of text within a single line, the amount of words is roughly being maintained.
When the replaced text selection consists fully of lower-cased or capital letters or begins with a capital letter, that previous casing is maintained. Furthermore, the presence or absence of a trailing punctuation mark of a replaced text selection is being maintained.
