Chapter 15. Text and Object Styles > Automatic Drop Cap Styling

Automatic Drop Cap Styling

If you look at the opening paragraph of each chapter of this book, you’ll notice that the typeface for the drop cap is not the same as the rest of the text in the paragraph. In early editions of this book, I had to manually drag across every single drop cap character and change it to a character style. These days InDesign has a feature that makes it possible to automatically style the drop cap character.

Tip

Use this technique if you want to apply an automatic drop cap without defining a paragraph style. Use the exercise on the next page if you want to apply the automatic drop cap as part of a paragraph style.
