Fun Filler Text for Word (even in 2013) :P AKA Another Easter Egg

Quick Blog! So here I am, le me winding down the day and doing some documents and found some interesting thing to do with Word 🙂

So try these things out on MS Word, type the following and then press enter:

=Rand()

=Rand.Old()

and my favorite:

=Lorem()

Lol, so I dug around the internet and found out that these are actually a features of office called  “Filler Text” that you can use as place holder or dummy text for your documents.

With digging, I found out you can pass integer "parameters” in to those functions above.

So like =Lorem(N) with N as a number, example is =Lorem(10) which gives you 10 sentences or lines of text.

Yeaa, go on try out =Rand(100) 🙂
