Is there an equivalent in Cura to "randomize seam position" that Slic3r has?

Defeating the dreaded "Z Scarring" In Cura

In Slic3r, there is a function located in Print Settings/Layers and perimeters/Advanced/Seam position that allows you to randomize where the entry points to each layer will be, eliminating z-scarring.  Is there a comparable function in Cura?
 

Now that I've configured Cura, it is printing better than Slic3r but I am still getting the z-scarring.

Look under: z seam alignment -> random

It also depends on your model, if there is a sharp corner somewhere, I prefer a 'user specified' location, so the z seam is always in that position.

Thanks PeggyB

Thanks for confirming. I found it, I'm using Cura 3.6.0 and 'Z Seam Alignment' is in the Shell section of 'Print Setup'
