Default Creating place holder text in templates

Hi all,

How can I put place holder text in a template that is automatically selected (and overwritten) when a user clicks on it?



It is a feature in all standard templates, I just can't seem to find it.

Sorry if this sounds like a really simple question, I've done my fair share of searching but can't seem to locate an answer.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Add a Content Control (using the developer tab>controls group) to the document template where you want the placeholder to appear.
