Shatter effect: Letters floating off a page

Hi guys,
I am new to this forum but I've read a lot of the posts here and I really need your help. I was trying to re-create this effect of letters floating off a page on AE

But somehow the letters always break from left to right not randomly as in the video clip.
I am really hoping someone could give me some advice on how to deal with it the right way.

I don’t know the tutorial but the creator does explain in the comments, he used a custom shatter perfect.

I take that to mean, that he created a layer with his text shapes on it, then added a noisy gradient to those shapes, so that they didn’t shatter in exact left to right order.
