Generating Placeholder Text (Lorem ipsum) in Microsoft Word 2007 and 2010

Do you know that you can automatically generate placeholder text (a.k.a. "Lorem ipsum") in Microsoft Word 2007 and 2010 using the command:

=lorem (x,y)

where x=total number of paragraphs and x=total number of lines

For example, typing:
=lorem (2,10) will generate 2 paragraphs with a total of 10 lines of lorem ipsum.

The default =lorem() will generate 2 paragraphs with a total of 6 lines of lorem ipsum.

Unfortunately, this trick does not work in Microsoft Word 2003.

  1. Hi J. Tan,
    There is a mistake in this blog.
    Y = is the number of the sentences in a paragraph.
    Not total lines.
