Windows 7: Lorem Ipsum

07 Mar 2014   #1

Lorem Ipsum

Kari's Totally Trivial Knowledge, part 187:

You know that pseudo Latin dummy text used to demonstrate text positioning, font size, layout and so on? Lorem Ipsum etc. etc. etc.?

In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is a placeholder text commonly used to demonstrate the graphic elements of a document or visual presentation. By replacing the distraction of meaningful content with filler text of scrambled Latin it allows viewers to focus on graphical elements such as font, typography, and layout.

The lorem ipsum text is typically a mangled section of De finibus bonorum et malorum, a 1st-century BC Latin text by Cicero, with words altered, added, and removed that make it nonsensical, improper Latin.
(From: Lorem ipsum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Creative Lorem Ipsum examples: 20 Creative Lorem Ipsum Dummy Text Generators

Did you know you could create your own Lorem Ipsum story in Microsoft Word with a simple command?

Try this, I've tested it in Word 2007, 2010 and 2013, don't know if it works in older versions:

Simply type =lorem(X,Y) on Word and hit Enter. X = amount of paragraphs, Y = the amount of sentences in one paragraph, so for instance =lorem(15, 6) creates a short story of 15 paragraphs, each of them 6 sentences.

Notice that Lorem Ipsum Generator does not work if you have disabled Replace text as you type:

It might be the cognac, works for me with whisky .

Type this to get 5 paragraphs, each 3 sentences:
Lorem Ipsum-2014-03-08_23h32_41.png
Hit Enter, this is the result:

Good! Knowing you like Martell and Hennesy more than Laphroaig and Talisker, it had been a shame if you'd had to change your drink to get it working .
