I would like to create the following look:
I want the numbers to be a numbered list for each paragraph.
But I am unable to apply the drop cap effect to the numbered list items. Only the first characters of the paragraph become a drop cap.
I can create the effect as you see above, but I had to convert the numbers to text.
Have I overlooked something that would do it?
That's exactly the way I handle this kind of problem. Unfortunately, you have to anchor the empty list frame at the end of the previous paragraph to get a proper text wrap. If someone has another idea, I'll be glad to know it!
This is very helpful.
What I didn't know is that the empty anchored frames still update the numbers if the paragraphs are re-ordered. That was my primary reason for not wanting the convert the numbers to text.
But with the anchored frames and an object style to keep the text wrap, and a character style to drop the baseline, I pretty much have as much automation as I can hope for.
