Placeholder Text Command

One more tool command is that if you say ‘placeholder text‘ LilySpeech produces this piece of text:


If you triple click that piece of text it highlights the whole thing allowing you to paste in anything you like very quickly. This is great when you’re dictating something and in the middle of what you’re saying plan to put something like a website URL or anything that you know LilySpeech won’t recognize.
