Hi @evertonuli2 !

There are undocumented functions within Office Application.

You can insert 3 blind text functions within Office (Word Excel PP Outlook OneNote...)

a) =rand(3,5) gives you 3 sections with 5 sentences with an office 2007 text about new tools in Office.

b) =lorem(3,5) gives you the good old "lorem ipsum" blind text.

c) =rand.old(3,5) you can also test. It doesn't work in my Word online.

 

I fear there s no way to change the original rand or lorem text. Instead you can define your own blind texts with Building Blocks or AutoTexts. See that article to do it: https://wordmvp.com/FAQs/Customization/AutoText.htm

 

There are funny blind text alternatives on https://www.justinmind.com/blog/awesome-lorem-ipsum-alternatives/ like Batman Ipsum or Office Ipsum.
