Drop caps / large initial capitals

Sharing is caring!

Hi all I thought I would share this as we are typing rather a lot of books lately.

This is what’s known as a Drop Cap, (large initial capital) and is done in the following way in MS Word.

1.Click in the paragraph that you want to begin with a drop cap.  The paragraph must contain text. 
2.On the Insert tab, in the Text group, click Drop Cap. 

3.Click Dropped or In margin.
