Adding a Drop Cap

A few simple elements—drop caps, borders, and shading—make your newsletters and brochures look like a professional produced them. A drop cap is the enlarged first letter of a paragraph that provides instant style to a document. Instead of using a desktop publishing program to create a drop cap effect, you can quickly achieve the same thing in Word. You can change the drop cap position, font, and height, and then enter the distance between the drop cap and paragraph.
