Random, Quick Brown Fox and Lorem Ipsum – How to Add Filler Text in Microsoft Word Documents

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/07

Choices:

  • =lorem(...): Ramdom Lorem Ipsum text paragraphs.
    • The sentences are roughly between 0.25 and 1.0 document widths in length.
  • =rand(...): Random English help text like paragraphs.
    • The sentences are roughly between 0.5 and 1.5 document width in length.
  • =rand.old(...): “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” paragraphs (up until Word 2003, this was what rand(...) returned).
    • The sentences are always the same length.

(...) parameters:

  • (x,y): x paragraphs of y sentences of text
  • (y): y paragraphs of 3 sentences of text (lorem more towards 1, rand more towards 3)
  • (): depends on the function:
    • =lorem(): 5 paragraphs of 3 sentences of text
    • =rand(): 5 paragraphs of 3 sentences of text
    • =rand.old(): 3 paragraphs of 3 sentences of text

Note:

  • There is no way to specify x paragraphs of random number lines of text.
  • They need to have “Replace text as you type” enabled (see menu option “File” -> “Options” -> “Proofing” -> “Autocorrect Options”)
  • Word 2003 and lower only have =rand(...)

Based on:

For a random document demo, I usually do this:

  1. =lorem(100,1) to get 100 paragraphs of 1 line of text
  2. About every 10 paragraphs, I mark a paragraph with a relevant Heading style
  3. Inside the remaining text, I combine some paragraphs to get longer ones

Contact for when WayBack internet archival fails to grab content

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/06/07

For my link archive, some tweets. [WayBack] Mark Graham is the person to contact in case archiving a link in the WayBack machine fails.

These are the steps for my link archival:

  1. check if it saves and renders with the WayBack machine, if so, copy the saved URL and the original URL
  2. check if it saves and renders with archive.is, if so, copy the saved URL and the original URL
  3. if neither saved, then use the original URL and link text, but note it was unsavable; otherwise prepend the original URL and link text with [WayBack] or [Archive.is] containing the saved URL
