Summary0000460: Drop caps with more than one character
DescriptionTitle was:
drop-cap with # of letters, or first word(s). subsequent paras shift-return for newline, no dropcap


drop-caps should give choice of number of letters to drop-cap, or word(s). like in Openoffice writer. if i want a newline, pressing shift-return gives it, without drop-caps, para-above para-below gaps, etc.

Example of use case from 0007587
Am trying to find an easier way to get the first two characters to act as Drop Caps. Since we are using this wonderful program in Spanish, many of our "first paragraphs" begin with either an upside down question mark or the upside down exclamation mark and the paragraph looks pretty strange with only the upside down question mark as a Drop Cap.

Yes, this is a very useful resource (effect) and many times you need to use in a big number of articles (if is a big magazine or glossy) .. I am glad to read the feature is in the planned roadmap (?)
thanks a lot
