I have a word (Polygon object), all of the letters are disconnected from each other visually. But I would like to split the polygon object into 7 different polygon objects, 1 for each letter. I'm planning on having all of these in a null group, so that they fly on screen, but I'd also like to have a random effector on these so that they all fly in from randomish directions.

Any tips?

Best thing to do is click on the polygon mode option on the left side of the window. Click on live selection, increase the radius if necessary, look to the bottom right of the windows and turn off "select visible only" or something like that, and highlight one letter of the word, hit CTRL+X then CTRL+V. Then the selected shape should appear with it's own object in the hierarchy.
