Can Papyrus support drop caps


I’m a new user, can Papyrus support dropped caps?
I Imported my Word doc and ny first chapter characters showed up as regular size.


Hi Sue and welcome to the Community :grinning:

There is currently no special formatting option for creating drop caps for the first character of your first word in a chapter. However, there are several options available, depending on what you want to do.

The simplest, for example, is to make the first character larger than then rest. Do this by simply highlighting that letter and changing the font size in the toolbar:


However, be aware that changing your style settings at any point may reset the changes you make this way.

If you are looking for something more ornamental, or want to avoid other style changes causing a conflict, use a graphic for the letter (either an image or a text box) and insert this into your text.
Right click on the inserted image to access the Graphic Properties (text wrapping, Anchor, Position, etc.):

These options will help you align the graphic with the text flowing around it.

Thank you!
