RISE - Changing Default Content/Text

Hello,

Question: Is there a setting that enables you to change the default filler content/text?

Example: "When we show up to the present moment with all of our senses, we invite the world to fill us with joy. The pains of the past are behind us. The future has yet to unfold. But the now is full of beauty simply waiting for our attention."

I would like to never again see the filler text Rise uses.

Please forgive me for asking this question if it has already been answered in the forums. 

Kind Regards,

Joseph

Hi Joseph!  Thanks for candidly sharing your thoughts.  Nobody liked my idea of a bunch of Yogi-isms as placeholders.  😄

The text content is required as a placeholder, and also meant to be an example of how your lessons and blocks might look.  I'll share your thoughts with our team.  Would you prefer to see your own 'lorem ipsum' text in there?

I hope Rise is otherwise helping you to quickly build beautiful e-learning!

Thanks Crystal, Rise has become a very great tool for development!

I'd prefer not to read someone's ideals/beliefs as a placeholder while I am designing.

Currently I create templates with filler content that relates more to the industry of my clients as a solution. (So they won't look at me like I am crazy with the current placeholder text LOL)

Personally, when I design for myself, I have certain passages, quotes, and scripture that really inspire me that I would like to have as one of the default options...if this feature is added.

Hopefully I'm making sense. Options to choose Lorem Ipsum, Quick Brown Fox or something...and/or an option where you can choose to overwrite all placeholder content with you own custom so you won't have to create templates just to have your own sample content.

Hi, we've just spotted this same placeholder text in our xliff files for a couple of different modules that we are preparing for translation: "When we show up to the present moment with all of our senses, we invite the world to fill us with joy. The pains of the past are behind us. The future has yet to unfold. But the now is full of beauty simply waiting for our attention." but it doesn't appear in our course. Any idea how it can be not visible within the course, but be in the xliff file?

Hi there, Nigel. We see "orphaned" text included in the XLIFF if a block has been added to a lesson, and then changed to another block that no longer includes the text. In case you need to revert to the original block type, we don't drop any of the data that was entered (by default or manually).

Is it possible that a text block that originally contained that placeholder text was changed (not deleted) to another block type?

Hi - I'm also interested in this feature.

It's very hard to spot Lorem Ipsum text with what's put into the default.

Can you at least change your Lorem Ipsum text to something standard that everyone will recognize as such? Even if it's not customizable, but at least a universally recognized Lorem Ipsum would be better than what's currently included.

That way if something is accidentally left in, a client will know that it's just place holder text, and not something that's in the actual content.
