Training In A Minute: Add Random Filler Text In Microsoft Word

Built into Microsoft Word is a way to quickly add filler text into your document. This can be very useful when you are testing out layouts or want to see how formatting could look when you are putting together a template.

Adding random filler / placeholder text into Word

  1. Select an area where you want to add text

  2. Type in "=rand()"

  3. Press Enter

You can also use =lorem() for different filler text. Adding a number in between the parentheses ( e.g. "=rand(5)" ) will adjust the number of paragraphs that are generated.

Not using word? Here's a quick and easy way to generate text to use in any application.
