Drop cap missing?

Occasional Visitor

Hi there, friends:


I am an editor, working on a book for a client, and somehow using Track Changes I have bungled up the formatting. In the original manuscript, the author has each chapter beginning with a drop cap, but somewhere along the line, one of my edits altered the formatting and it’s removed the original formatting that allows for a drop cap in every chapter. I myself am not a MS Word whiz, and I have no idea how to get the drop caps back in there like how they used to be. Not even a clue as to how to get it back to where it was. I can’t revert back to a previous version—I just need to figure out how to once again put the drop caps back in. SOS! Thanks in advance. Screen shots of original and bungled versions attached.Screen Shot 2022-04-08 at 08.16.02.pngScreen Shot 2022-04-08 at 08.16.25.png

@robinmarkpeace Select the first letter of the chapter and Text section of the Insert tab of the ribbon, expand the Drop Cap dialog and then click on Dropped.
