    Dummy/Random Text (XP)

    Is there a way that I can automatically fill text boxes with random dummy text as a placeholder?

    A tedious way might be in Word to type =RAND(m,n) (m and n are numbers!) at the beginning of a line and press Enter, to get m paragraphs of n sentences "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog", which you could cut and paste into Publisher?

    Surely you don't want Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...?
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...

    No I don't want lorem ipsum thanks!

    As you suggest I shall just cut and paste something from Word.

    I had a feeling that I had done it in previous versions of Publisher but with more thought I think that I was thinking of Dreamweaver!

    Many thanks

    How about the usual pangrams, like:

    Fill my box with five dozen liquor jugs
    Quick waxy bugs jump the frozen veldt
    Waltz, bad nymph, for quick jigs vex

    inter alia?
    <font face="Script MT Bold"><font color=blue><big><big>John</big></big></font color=blue></font face=script>

    Ita, esto, quidcumque...
