Easter Egg Found! (fake text)

Apr 16, 2019

As many people know, there is an Easter Egg in Microsoft Word that will give you 'fake text'. I'll take a moment to explain that, just in case you weren't aware.

On a blank line in a Word doc, type the following: =rand(3,5)

Where 3 represents the number of paragraphs you want, and 5 represents the number of sentences per paragraph (you can use any number combination).


Tada!  You have 3 paragraphs of text containing 5 sentences each. This is handy for demonstration/training/testing purposes!

So, for grins, today I tried it in a StoryLine text box. 

You sly foxes, you!!!!  (it works; just not the same text as MSWord - but beggars shouldn't be choosers, AmIRight?)
