Add Content Editor Web Parts a bit faster

Here's a quick tip: If you want to add more Content Editor Web Parts faster to a homepage or a webpart page (to move and edit them afterwards)

1. Switch to edit mode
2. Add a Content Editor Web Part
3. When the page reloads with a CEWP added, hit Refresh (F5) and click "Retry" when Internet Explorer asks you if to resubmit information.

I use this technique to add multiple CEWPs to the page, when I need to add some explanations above some webparts. When I have enough of them, I drag them to different zones and positions and edit the titles and contents.

Can I include that in my tips and traps book?

Thanks for a great feedback :). I think this is the fastest post I've ever made.

Sure you can use this. Let me know when the book will be out. Any refference would also be nice.
