In Affinity Publisher, the top of CapHeight of the Drop Capital is below the top of CapHeight of the Initial Word in All Caps.

In PagePlus X9 the alignment is just about spot-on.

I see what you mean, @Bhikkhu Pesala, but for me it is highly font-dependent. Some fonts work just fine, others are off a little bit. Others are off significantly.

I'm not sure if that's an issue with Publisher or the font definitions, and (unfortunately) I don't know enough about font design to know, nor do I have appropriate tools to try to investigate things like this.

It's APub.

In the below screen shots, first from QXP (but is the same in the other layout applications I use) and the second from APub. Two different fonts and I tried several.

Clearly a bug in Affinity Publisher. CapHeight is a metric that is known and line-spacing is known for any font.

The Drop Capital size is incorrectly calculated.
