  1. I have tried both the lorem and the rand functions — neither works.  Does some feature have to be “enabled” before these functions produce results?

  3. You can also add another argument to indicate the number of sentences for the paragraph.

    =rand(5,10)

    This will generate 5 paragraphs and 10 sentences each.
