Foxy or Ipsum

=rand(p,s)


In Word 2007 =rand() produces a selection from the Help file.


=lorem() displays:

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.


If you want some history, try Lipsum.com



Pre 2007:

To insert practice text in the document, type:
=rand()
and hit the ENTER key.

The whole equation would be:
=rand(p,s)
"p"is for p>aragraphs. "s" is for s>entences.

=rand(2,3)
would produce 2 paragraphs containing 3 sentences each.


It is said that:

The Italian edition of Microsoft Word 2000 produces:
"Cantami o Diva del pelide Achille l'ira funesta."

This is the first line of the Italian translation of Homer's Iliad

In Spanish it's:
"El veloz murciélago hindú comía feliz cardillo y kiwi."

"The quick Hindu bat ate happy golden thistle and kiwi."

In French it's:
"Servez à ce monsieur une bière et des kiwis."

"Serve this gentleman a beer and some kiwis."

Select Text

Pick a word



  • If you double click on a word, it will be selected.
    Triple click and you will select the paragraph.

  • If you hold down the CTRL key and click, you will select a sentence.
    (Word is looking for a period, so it will also stop after the period in "Mr. Smith")


  • Move the mouse pointer to the left side of the document. It will change to a NE (upper left) pointing arrow.


    • Click once and a line is selected; a line, not just a sentence.

    • Click twice to select the paragraph.

    • Click three times and the entire document will be selected.

  • Place the insertion point where you want the selection to begin, press F8, and use the arrow keys on the keyboard to highlight the selection. Press Esc to end the extended selection.

  • Click to the left of the first word you want selected. Hold down the Shift key and click to the right of the end of the selection.

  • Hold down the ALT key and drag down to select a "column"; perhaps the first two characters that precede a list of items.
