Hi there, i am facing a problem with the drop caps, don´t know if i just didn´t get how they work or there is a bug or so. I have a drop cap at the start of the text. But if i change the size of the textbox the drop cap changes in size. The only solution i found was to ignore the baseline grid. Which i am certainly not a big fan of. Am i missing something? 2020-10-25_14-05-31.mp4
Windows 10 Home 1809, Publisher 126.96.36.199. I've noticed that the Drop Caps feature always seems to want to 'drop' a letter regardless of what the first character in the paragraph is. For example, in the attached image: 1) Drop cap with letter as first character is as expected; 2) 'D' has been replaced with '>' and both the '>' and 'r' are dropped; 3) Keep adding more non-letter-characters and the problem persists; 4) This is what I think it should do. I've tried clicking round the glyph browser adding different characters and sometimes it drops just the first character and sometimes it drops more. It seems like Publisher has its own opinion on what a 'letter' is and, therefore, what can be dropped. Is the feature working as expected or is this a bug? (If it is working as expected, can anyone explain (A) why I can't use non-letters as drop-'caps', or (B) how I can do what I want?) I have a clunky work-around - as seen in figure 4 - but I'd rather not have to use it if possible. This post seems to be on a related note but from a different direction: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/74084-drop-caps-feature-suggestion/
