word_gabOften when you are designing forms, styles or paragraphs you want to be able to have an idea what your document is going to look like with your content. Here is a quick way....

So you set up your new paragraph and to see what it will look like with content filled into the area, type "=rand(5)" and press enter straight after the code and it will populate your style with 5 paragraphs of text. Obviously, the number in brackets represents the number of paragraphs you are going to create.

To get back to your original document before the text was inserted just use the "Ctrl" "Z" to undo the last action. Hope you all know about undoing the last commands, formatting etcetera by using the magic undo key combination "Ctrl" + "Z", it stores quite a number of commands so by repeating the key combination you can keep "undoing" as long as the command history exists for that session.

The text will look something like this:

"On the Insert tab, the galleries include items that are designed to coordinate with the overall look of your document. You can use these galleries to insert tables, headers, footers, lists, cover pages, and other document building blocks. When you create pictures, charts, or diagrams, they also coordinate with your current document look.

You can easily change the formatting of selected text in the document text by choosing a look for the selected text from the Quick Styles gallery on the Home tab. You can also format text directly by using the other controls on the Home tab. Most controls offer a choice of using the look from the current theme or using a format that you specify directly.

To change the overall look of your document, choose new Theme elements on the Page Layout tab. To change the looks available in the Quick Style gallery, use the Change Current Quick Style Set command. Both the Themes gallery and the Quick Styles gallery provide reset commands so that you can always restore the look of your document to the original contained in your current template.
