    • com.aspose.words.DropCapPosition
public class DropCapPosition 
extends java.lang.Object

Utility class containing constants. Specifies the position for a drop cap text.

Example:

Shows how to create a drop cap.
Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

// Insert one paragraph with a large letter that the text in the second and third paragraphs begins with.
builder.getFont().setSize(54.0);
builder.writeln("L");

builder.getFont().setSize(18.0);
builder.writeln("orem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit, " +
        "sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. ");
builder.writeln("Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation " +
        "ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.");

// Currently, the second and third paragraphs will appear underneath the first.
// We can convert the first paragraph as a drop cap for the other paragraphs via its "ParagraphFormat" object.
// Set the "DropCapPosition" property to "DropCapPosition.Margin" to place the drop cap
// outside the left-hand side page margin if our text is left-to-right.
// Set the "DropCapPosition" property to "DropCapPosition.Normal" to place the drop cap within the page margins
// and to wrap the rest of the text around it.
// "DropCapPosition.None" is the default state for all paragraphs.
ParagraphFormat format = doc.getFirstSection().getBody().getFirstParagraph().getParagraphFormat();
format.setDropCapPosition(dropCapPosition);

doc.save(getArtifactsDir() + "ParagraphFormat.DropCap.docx");
