Hello there, I'm wondering, is there a feature in the opentype designer where a glyph can have two or more variations?

So let's say I've the letter D and I want to have two different D's appear randomly across a paragraph, is this possible? Because I think having two or three variations of one letter in my font would be awesome, but I'm not sure if the feature exists or not :?: any help would be nice

thanks

This feature exists in the Open Type Specification. I'm not sure it's accessible through the Open Type Designer GUI in Font Creator but it will be accessible by writing the code for the feature in the code editor, you will have to do some hand coding.

The Tutorial on OpenType Features does not include an example of Randomized Substitution.
