    Thank you. I appreciate you taking the time to make something and share it.

    I personally tend to find that the actual text content is be the most critically important part of a wireframe. Without it, I'd say you're just doing very low-fidelity visual design not wireframing.

    I can see it could be useful for loading/empty states in UI though.

      Hey Bevan. I definitely see your point, and I completely agree. This is really for when you've got to mock something up really quickly.

      For example, quick design sprint exercises, hack days, very low fidelity conceptual flows/mocks.

      I actually didn't think about using it for UI loading states. Great idea!

      Good for laying out blog content etc, where the copy would be dynamic/frequently changing.

      Personally I'd just use lorem ipsum, or the line tool for this effect, however I can see why people would find value in using a font like this :)
