How To Add The Lorem Ipsum Dummy Text in Microsoft Word

How To Add The Lorem Ipsum Dummy Text in Microsoft Word

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas porttitor congue massa. Fusce posuere, magna sed pulvinar ultricies, purus lectus malesuada libero, sit amet commodo magna eros quis urna.”

 

The Origin

I believe you have seen this Latin text all over the Internet, but what is it actually?

The above text is an excerpt of the famous gibberish Latin text that we refer to as Lorem Ipsum text, filler text, dummy text and few other names. The purpose is mainly to give an idea to User Interface (UI) designers to see how the layout of a print will look like with sample text filled inside the prepared layout. It simply is dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry.

The lorem ipsum text can be traced all the way to 1600 and is an excerpt from a scripture by Cicero’s ‘De finibus bonorum et malorum’. In fact the word lorem is the result of hyphenation of original word of dolorem.

 

How to get Lorem Ipsum text in Microsoft Word?

Firstly, you need to open up the Microsoft Word program, and choose a New Blank document.

Type =lorem() as what you see on the above screen. Press Enter to get you result.

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Maecenas porttitor congue massa. Fusce posuere, magna sed pulvinar ultricies, purus lectus malesuada libero, sit amet commodo magna eros quis urna.

Nunc viverra imperdiet enim. Fusce est. Vivamus a tellus.

Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Proin pharetra nonummy pede. Mauris et orci.

Aenean nec lorem. In porttitor. Donec laoreet nonummy augue.

Suspendisse dui purus, scelerisque at, vulputate vitae, pretium mattis, nunc. Mauris eget neque at sem venenatis eleifend. Ut nonummy.”

 

Lorem Ipsum Parameters

TheĀ =lorem() can be further enhanced by typing the number of paragraphs and the number of sentences you need to have in a paragraph for the dummy text. Example as follows:

When you type =lorem(5,3), you are basically telling Microsoft Word to generate a lorem ipsum text that has five (5) paragraphs, where each paragraph has three (3) sentences.

If I am bored with the lorem ipsum filler text

Try the followings:

=rand() will give you the following text:

Video provides a powerful way to help you prove your point. When you click Online Video, you can paste in the embed code for the video you want to add. You can also type a keyword to search online for the video that best fits your document.

To make your document look professionally produced, Word provides header, footer, cover page, and text box designs that complement each other. For example, you can add a matching cover page, header, and sidebar. Click Insert and then choose the elements you want from the different galleries.

Themes and styles also help keep your document coordinated. When you click Design and choose a new Theme, the pictures, charts, and SmartArt graphics change to match your new theme. When you apply styles, your headings change to match the new theme.

Save time in Word with new buttons that show up where you need them. To change the way a picture fits in your document, click it and a button for layout options appears next to it. When you work on a table, click where you want to add a row or a column, and then click the plus sign.

Reading is easier, too, in the new Reading view. You can collapse parts of the document and focus on the text you want. If you need to stop reading before you reach the end, Word remembers where you left off – even on another device.”

 

=rand.old() will give you the following text:

“The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”
