  1. Hi there I'm experimenting with Publisher to lay out my next indie novel. It would be handy to have a check-box function added to be able to apply drop-caps to the second character in a paragraph, rather than the first character - as the first paragraph in a fiction-based novel often starts with a speech mark, and in that instance, you want the drop cap applied to the actual character, not the speech mark. E.g., if a chapter started: "Don't you look at me like that!" snarled Bob. You'd want the 'D' to be the drop cap, not the initial speech-mark, " This feature already exists in Adobe In-Design, but not the open source package, Scribus. Congrats on your mind-blowing software, by the way. I just cancelled my subscription to the complete Adobe Suite (the price rises were too much for me as a non-design agency amateur, with no clients to bill to justify the cost), and have been casting around for pro-level replacements for Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign on the PC, and came across the Affinity range by accident via a youtube video that mentioned them.
