Looking for actual free (not free downloads - that you then have to pay to use) of simple software that will work on a Mac to make canned text that can be pasted in any program.

Apple - Downloads - Dashboard Widgets - Lorem Ipsum Widget
Apple - Downloads - Dashboard Widgets - Cicero

And more, search for "Mac lorem ipsum" on Google..

Thanks for the information:

Introducing Loremify | Tobias Ahlin
Apple - Downloads - Dashboard Widgets - Lorem Ipsum Widget
Apple - Downloads - Dashboard Widgets - Cicero

BUT ... ALL three of these are just space fillers in Latin that really say nothing ... so someone can see what a form would look like with text in the form.

'Canned Texts' are real statements - sentences or phrases can be stored in a data base and copied and pasted in any form/application, so that you do not have to retype phrases / sentences/explanations that you use over and over -- (gmail now has this for gmail- but it will only work in gmail) --

There are software programs that can be PAID FOR, that do this -- but are quite expensive for what they do.

I was hoping someone would know of a FREE app or freeware program that would do this on a Mac.

THANKS!

Well the term "canned text" in my experience is usually used to indicate creating dummy text to see how something would look all written up.

You are looking for a program like TextExpander which is commercial. So try DashExpander – Text Abbreviation Expander - Kapeli which is free.
