I can't seem to make my drop cap align with the first line of text- being at the top of the drop cap.. When I add more "lines" in the "drop caps and nested styles" section of paragraph formatting, it will add a few more lines of text, but still won't align to the top of the drop cap. When I look up other articles about drop caps and alignment they discuss kerning difficulties, not my issue, and all the examples I seem to find show the drop cap being aligned with the first line of text, including on the adobe "drop cap and nested styles" page!
The first picture is my example, with 3 lines of drop cap at size 20 pt, the second photo is same size font at 6 lines of drop cap, the third is taken from the adobe website on drop caps and nested styles. Even on that page I can't work out how to make my text start at the top of the drop cap, like they have pictures.. What am I doing wrong??
The drop cap should start at the same point size as the rest of the text. For example, if the rest of the paragraph is 12 point text, the first letter should also be 12 point.
When you apply the Drop Cap setting, choose the number of lines you want the drop cap to drop down into the paragraph. The number of lines deep will determine the size of the drop cap.
To that I would add, if you are using a character style for the drop cap make sure the size for the character style is empty.
