Inserting Drop Caps

A drop cap is the first letter in a paragraph, enlarged and positioned so that the top of the letter lines up with the top of the first sentence. The rest of the letter drops down into the text, hence the term “drop cap.” Drop caps are used to draw the reader’s eye to a specific point in the page, such as to a pull quote or to the beginning of a chapter or section.

To add a drop cap at the beginning of a paragraph, click in the paragraph, and then choose Format, Paragraph, Drop Cap or click the Drop-Cap Style button to open the Drop Cap dialog box. Select one of the drop cap styles—WordPerfect grabs the first character, enlarges it, and formats the rest of the paragraph around it (see Figure 7.18).
