Please, how do you do a raised initial like the example in InDesign?

Thank you,

This can be done by creating a Paragraph Style with a nested Character Style.

  1. Create a paragraph style with a Drop Cap of 1 line and 1 character.
  2. Click the New Nested Style button
  3. Set character style to the font size/color, etc. you would like the initial cap to be and name it something memorable (I named it Raised Cap).

When this is done you can go in and customize the styles more to refine the settings. Hope this helps.
