How to generate and insert the Text Filler in Word 2010

If you’re working on the layout of a document, then the filler text will be useful sometimes. You can use the filler text for all the text or just for certain spot elements like Captions. There is an easier feature available in Word to insert text quickly into a document.  Moreover, you can opt for the classic lorem ipsum in Latin, the popular “quick brown fox” text, or a passage from the Word documentation.
Therefore, you can insert a block of lorem ipsum text, by typing =lorem(X,Y) at the beginning of a new paragraph and hitting the Enter Key.
Here, X represents the number of paragraphs you wish to have and Y represents the number of sentences in each paragraph.



For instance, =lorem(4,3) will insert 4 paragraphs with 3 sentences each. If you want the quick brown fox filler text, type =rand.old(X,Y) at the beginning of a new paragraph and hit enter, whereas for the text taken from the Word documentation, type =rand(X,Y) at the beginning of a new paragraph and hit enter.
