I am new to custom functions and have found this library to be invaluable. I was trying to make a word scramble generator for some classroom worksheets. I used the Jumble custom function on this list but changed it from scrambling words to scrambling letters. I think it works okay, but it seems to keep double letters together a lot. If I recalculate a couple of times, it seems to work fine.
