    Drop Cap (XP)

    Is there a way to insert, make, paste, whatever a drop cap in PowerPoint?

    Thanks

    Not really. You can fake it by using multiple text boxes, but it's a hassle. See screenshot.

    I can't believe I actually KNEW something couldn't be done (at least with ease) - I get to go home early as a reward.

    Again, many thanks

    Good morning

    I create my text in Word and apply the drop cap, the Control 'A' and Control 'C' to select and copy everything and then in PowerPoint 'Paste Special' and the text is inserted with the drop cap, not a lot of fuss or bother.

    Cheers

    Hey Steve - Good Morning right back atcha. Rats - I was so jazzed that I knew something - tried your suggestion and, of course, it works like a champ! You DID forget to tell me which Paste Special option to choose but I chose correctly and it's very cool.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Peace

    Aunt Linda
