Hello,

I have a problem with the Height in lines.

If I put 1 it works with 1 line, but if I put 2 then I got 3 and if I put 3 then I got 5.

What I did wrong?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums, @q166132.

I'm not sure what's happening there, but I think you mean Publisher, not Designer. Drop Caps are a Publisher feature, and not present in Designer as far as I know. Also, your screenshot is from Publisher (the red text flow icon on your Text Frame confirms that).

I just tried setting up Drop Caps in Publisher and it worked as expected.

Are you on Mac or Windows? What version of Publisher do you have?

Can you supply a sample document that shows this, and does it still happen if you close and reopen the document, or close and reopen Publisher?

Sorry Walt, I meant Publisher.

Thanks for the info and document. I'll take a look later, or maybe someone else will have an idea.

By the way, if you go to your original post in the topic, and Edit it, you can change the subject line to say Publisher rather than Designer. That may help avoid some confusion :)

This is a font thing. I don't have the font from your document and the substituted font worked fine, the only way I can get the drop cap to misbehave as you demonstrated is to use Bernhard font. Actually it is a Leading thing. Change your leading from default to either % or Exactly...
