# Blindtext - What to do with?

The Package Blindtext.sty allows to create long texts for testing.
Supported languages are:
• English
• (N)German
• Latin (partly supported, only text available, no documents and lists)
On CTAN is also a larger Lorem Ipsumlipsum.sty

# Blindtext - How to use?

## Create Text

To create text, you can use different macros:
\blindtext
create text.
\Blindtext
create text with paragraphs.
\blindtext[3]
write the text three times.
\Blindtext[2][3]
Write text with two paragraphs.

## Create Lists

To create lists you can use:
\blinditemize
Create an itemize-environment.
\blindenumerate
Create an enumerate-environment.
\blinddescription
Create a description-environment.
\Blinditemize
An itemize-environment with paragraphs.
\Blindenumerate
An enumerate-environment with paragraphs.
\Blinddescription
A description-environment with paragraphs.
With an optional parameter you can define the number of list items.

## Create Documents

To create complete documents with sections, subsections, lists etc. you can use \blinddocument or \Blinddocument.
\blinddocument
Create a text with sectioning and all list types.
\Blinddocument
Create a longer text.

## Math

\blindmathtrue + \blindmathfalse
On and off for inline formula in the blind text.
\blindmathpaper
Some text with formulas in between.
Version 1.9 will not be released at CTAN. A redesigned version will be published later (formula will change and contain more math symbols).

### Example

\documentclass[ngerman]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{babel}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\begin{document}
\Blinddocument
\end{document}

This document creates a 15-page document with different section level and lists. You can add a \tableofcontents to get a table of content.

# New languages

If you want blindtext in another language, please provide me the following texts in the new language:
• Name of the language (The key you use in babel.sty)
• A short paragraph, something with 6 lines.
• Some number as text:
1. First
2. Second
3. Third
4. Fourth
5. Fivth

• item in a list
This text will be combined with the numbers. (I hope you have no language, where you need the number after the text).
