Exchange characters by random (opentype)
0

Dear Forum
this is my first post here!

I have a little question: I’m currently creating a font which contains 3 different widths for each character.
Imagine condensed, normal, extended.

Is it, and how, possible to let the typeface itself change, or say randomly pick, one of these 3 possible widths while i’m typing it in inDesign? In heard that some handwriting typefaces apply such glyph-exchange-techniques to not let the typeface appear to stiff in a larger text.

Any help or further reading is very much appreciated!
best wishes
Johannes
