Hello,

I don't know where sleeping dogs lie, but the obvious work around is to just
record a macro with the new catchy phrase. Put it on your tool bar for
instant content. You could fill pages and pages with just a few clicks!

Hello,

Put on your Word thinking caps, folks. This has stumped me. Does anyone out
there know where in the guts of Word the autotext which is created when you
type "=rand(2,2)" + ENTER resides?

For those of you who don't know this little trick, this key sequence (not
including the quotes) displays as follows:

The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps
over the lazy dog.
The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. The quick brown fox jumps
over the lazy dog.

Within the parentheses, the first number determines the number of
paragraphs that display, and the second number generates the number of
sentences within each paragraph.

I'd like to be able to change the boilerplate that's generated, 'cuz my
lazy dog is getting tired of the darned fox jumping over him.

Thanks in advance,
