How to create DropCap?


I am using latest version of Aspose.words for document conversion. Is it possible to create DROPCAP using aspose API ? I tried as below

Document doc = new Document();

Section section = new Section(doc);


Body body = new Body(doc);

Paragraph para = new Paragraph(doc);


Run run = new Run(doc);

but i didn’t get any output as expected. Am i doing anything wrong ? Please help me . If not possible please suggest some work around .


Hi Anbu,
Thanks for your inquiry. Unfortunately, drop caps are partially supported and only preserved during document conversion. You cannot yet create new drop caps.
A drop cap is a text frame which is imported as a separate paragraph. You can modify drop cap properties and position. However the new settings are not applied to the drop cap.
This will be improved in a future version of Aspose.Words.
Sorry for any inconvenience faced.
