The CopyDoc content library provides a bunch of placeholder text that you can use “as-is” (and apply them to your Figma text layers) from the Placeholders tab in your content library panel, or alternatively, you can also mix dynamic placeholder text into your own custom text snippets.

Adding placeholder content directly

You can browse different placeholder categories for “fake” content snippets under the Placeholders tab, and also select your language to localize some of the content (eg. names, places etc).

You can either click on the placeholder name (eg. “First Name”) button to apply it to your selected Figma text layer(s), or alternatively, you can copy/paste (or manually type) a trigger shortcut for a placeholder into your Figma text layer directly by prefixing the shortcut name with double backslashes (eg. //fake.person.firstName)

You can use your placeholder triggers in other CopyDoc features. The text expander snippet works by automatically detecting the snippet when a Figma text layer’s content is updated, which means that you can use your placeholder trigger shortcuts when using CopyDoc’s other text layer update methods (eg. find and replace, bulk CSV/XLSX imports, and Google Sheet sync). Just use the trigger name as part of your updated content eg. Hello //fake.person.firstName, how it's going?

Mixing dynamic placeholders inside your text snippets

To use a placeholder inside of a saved snippet, you can add curly brackets around either side of the shortcut name into your snippet text, for example: {{ fake.person.firstName }}

To make this easier, you can use the built-in placeholder shortcuts selector by enabling the Show Placeholder Shortcuts toggle, which will let you browse and automatically add placeholder shortcuts to your text snippets.

After you’ve saved your snippet, you can use it normally, in the same ways any other custom text snippet is applied; via applying it to text layers, or using it as a text expander.

Placeholder Shortcut References

Below is a complete list of all placeholder shortcuts that you can either use as part of your custom text snippets by adding the shortcut between double curly brackets (eg. {{ fake.person.firstName }}), or, directly into a text layer while editing it by prefixing the shortcut with double slashes (eg. //fake.person.firstName)
