Sometimes I need several pages of text, so that I can test a technique, give a demonstration, or create a placeholder for future content. This obscure little trick will allow you. I am starting with a blank document and I am going to a type in something that looks like an Excel formula. I'll start with an Equal (=) sign and I'll type rand, which stands for random. Then I'll do an open parenthesis ((). Now the first number is the number of paragraphs that you want, and then you put a Comma (,), and then type in the number of sentences that you want in each paragraph. Then I'll end my parentheses and hit Enter and instantly I have 10 paragraphs of three sentences each.
The boilerplate text talks about galleries and styles and themes but making use of this cool little shortcut will save you a ton of time in generating random content on the fly.
