There will be two kinds of style for drop cap: dropped and in margin. You can decide which one is suitable for you. What if the size of drop cap is too large or too small to meet your needs? Actually you can adjust the drop cap size by dragging the lower right corner of the drop cap up and to the left to shrink its size to span only two lines of the text. "Drop Cap Options" is very important, with which you can specify the number of lines the drop cap is to span as well as the distance from the surrounding text and the font used.
