I'm having a really hard time taking screenshots.
My app has a view controller that lets the user enter some information with a few
s. I am now taking screenshots of this view controller so that I can upload them to iTunes Connect.
Obviously, I can't just leave the text fields blank and take a screenshot, because that tells the user little information about how he/she is supposed to do.
Therefore, I need to enter some dummy texts. But they cannot be
because it makes no sense and does not show the user what that text field is for.
So I have to enter some really long texts in there in order to show the user a good example of how to use the app.
Now here comes the problem, I have to take screenshots of 5 device sizes and 3 localizations. This means that I will spend a lot of time entering the same old text into the iPhone over and over.
Then I thought that I can type the dummy texts into the Stickies app on my Mac, and copy/paste that text from my Mac to the iPhone simulator. So I pressed ⌘
in the Stickies app, and ⌘
in the iPhone, but nothing happens at all.
I think this is because the iPhone has its own clipboard.
How can I copy text from my Mac to the iPhone simulator?
Note: when the user is using the app, he/she can choose not to enter long texts. I'm just doing this to show a good example to the user. So don't tell me my app sucks.
