Dummy Text in Microsoft Office Word


So to add dummy text there is something called “lorem lpsum” (few people also call it “lpsum lorem”). lorem lpsum is use as a dummy text written in Latin, which has no real meaning. It is mostly used by designers and in publishing industry. So insert lorem lpsum in your MS Office document type =lorem(S,V) at the beginning of the paragraph.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas porttitor congue massa. Fusce posuere, magna sed pulvinar ultricies, purus lectus malesuada libero, sit amet commodo magna eros quis urna.
Nunc viverra imperdiet enim. Fusce est. Vivamus a tellus.
Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Proin pharetra nonummy pede. Mauris et orci.


If you want to some dummy text with some meaning full words and sentences in it then you can use =rand(S,V). It will add text something like this:

On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts, or diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look.
You can easily change the formatting of selected text in the document text by choosing a look for the selected text from the Quick Styles gallery on the Home tab. You can also format text directly by using the other controls on the Home tab. Most controls offer a choice of using the look from the current theme or using a format that you specify directly.
To change the overall look of your document, choose new Theme elements on the Page Layout tab. To change the looks available in the Quick Style gallery, use the Change Current Quick Style Set command. Both the Themes gallery and the Quick Styles gallery provide reset commands so that you can always restore the look of your document to the original contained in your current template.


=rand.old(S,V) will let you add that old English dummy text. It has all the English alphabets in one sentence without any repetition of any alphabet.

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Above you need to replace S with the number of paragraph you want and V with the number of sentences you want in each paragraph. If you want to add 2 paragraphs and 2 sentences in each paragraph then in bracket you can type number like this (2) (e.g.: =rand(2)). You can add the dummy text using this method in between any sentence or paragraph. You need to start it from a new paragraph to get the dummy get. If you just want a random number of dummy text then you can leave the bracket bank (e.g.: =rand()). You will not able to more than 140 paragraphs and sentences, if you want to add more than you need to again repeat it till your need don’t get fulfill.
