Drop caps are large characters that extend below the normal baseline of the first line of an opening paragraph. Canvas X Draw indents the text below the first line to make room for the drop caps. You can format drop caps for any selected paragraphs.
To apply to
First paragraph in a text object
Select the object or place the insertion point anywhere in the first paragraph.
All other paragraphs
Place the insertion point in a paragraph, or select a paragraph. You can also select multiple consecutive paragraphs.
A new paragraph you are about to type
Place the insertion point at the beginning of the paragraph.
The preset format
Deselect all objects. Canvas X Draw will apply drop caps to the first paragraph of all new text objects you create with the Text tool.
Specify the number of lines you want the drop caps to occupy. This determines the vertical height of the drop cap.
