Nimbus Note has a type of text format — placeholders. With them, you can create specially designed texts that can act as hints.
Placeholders fill the space for information you haven’t included yet. They are designated text that can serve as a hint or suggestion for the type of information to include. These are especially useful for creating templates or forms. You can find placeholders on Nimbus Note templates. You need to replace this text with your own data and information. You can also duplicate templates with placeholders and then fill them out accordingly.
