lorem ipsum and another microsoft word trick discovered


I love my job – Friday I was introduced to the term Lorem Ipsum and not knowing what it meant I typed it into Bing.

And then after reading a bit about it on Wikipedia – I discovered another Microsoft Word trick!  This is good enough to share with friends on Facebook, so I decide to post something with the link.

Here’s the Microsoft Word trick – type in =lorem() and Word automatically generates Lorem ipsum text

it even works in Word 2010 Starter edition!

I knew about =rand() which does something similar with text, but using real words not nonsense for typesetting.

=rand()

output of =rand() highlighted above.

This one was definitely worth sharing!
