HomeBookAuthor tip: Using Font Book, Lorem Ipsum widget for writers

An an entrepreneur and startup business I’m finishing up writing my book using Macs in business. One of the things about writing is noticing the “color” of your text on the page. Here’s a tip to see what I mean.

  1. Download the Mac widget Lorem Ipsum and install it on your Mac (or if you don’t like that, visit the Lorem Ipsum web site to get more text for your book).
  2. Click on the “paragraph” length and then copy it to your clipboard.
  3. In Font Book select the “Custom” menu item.
  4. Paste this paragraph into the large text pane.

There you have it. You can now view the “color” of the text as it will look on your page with the font that you have selected.

Do you have a writing tip using a Mac, or even a Windows computer? Let us know.
