Little known Microsoft Word trick.
Article published on February, 2005.

There is a secret feature in MS Word that can be used for several purposes: to test line wraps, paragraph breaks, page ends, font sizes, line spacing, or anything else where is a need to have a lot of text entered and you don't want to go through the typical copy/paste methods.

1. Open new document and write: =rand(3,5) and hit ENTER:


2. This is what you get:


As you can see this rand() function gives out sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". You can replace 3 and 5 with any other number. The first number gives the times the paragraph as a whole will be repeated, the second number gives the times the sentences themselves will be repeated w/in each paragraph.
