Hello All, 


I'm trying to make my own templates but i'm stuck. 

Is there a way to make my own grey placeholder text that disappears when changing the text?

Re: Dropbox paper grey text


Hi @Sandtheman, thanks for taking the time to message us!


Currently, it isn't possible to create these kind of templates with grey text showing what people could enter.


The template would be as it appears, and users would need to add any extra content themselves, so there isn't any restrictions on content.


If you wish, you can suggest this change for others to vote on, so the dev team can look into this in future!
