Description Steve Edmonds 2018-10-15 20:19:27 UTC
A simple change to allow a value of 1 for lines under the drop caps tab would enable a character style to be applied to the first word of a paragraph.
In this bug submission form there are 2 paragraphs starting Bad example and Good example starting with different coloured text. With the proposed change a style could be created colouring the first word, in fact the first 2 words if hyphenated.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Drop Caps tab of paragraph style
2.Try to reduce lines less than 2

Actual Results:
Lines can't go less than 2

Expected Results:
A value of Lines = 1 can be selected

Reproducible: Always
