Probably a fairly easy one but my google searches didn't help me.

I'm trying to mimick a technique I've seen around the place, which is like a typewriter transition except the letters fade in a random order. Any quick tips on how to do this?

You can find this in the text animation section. Click the down arrow next to your text in the time line. On the right side you will see Animate: > go ahead and hit that drop down. Check opacity. Key frame your start 0%-100%, and then turn the randomizer on. I'm doing that from memory, so there may be a little give and take. But that should at least get you in the right direction. Try playing with the opacity level too.
