When you want to start a sentence, let's say, in the first line of text after a new chapter's header, it's cool to make the first letter a big one. However, that also makes bigger the space between that line and the line below. The result is, therefore, a first line which seems to be "separated" from the rest of the text. Is there some way to fix this?...
LibreOffice already supports that function, it's name is Drop Caps.
Format - Paragraph - Drop Caps.
Note: Please search the web, ask.libreoffice.org or help content before asking for functionalities.

Request is a little different than current Drop Caps. Setting back to unconfirmed.
That is not a bug not a correct enhancement (from typography point of view). The bigger character in the row set the row height; if you make bigger a set of not capitalized characters like p ou g, you need room below the line. The right mean to have a big character at the start of the line is to use drop capital.
Closing as WontFix. If you disagree, please reopen as UNCONFIRMED and develop your argumentation.

Then I have a suggestion: Why not include in LibreOffice the option to make a big capital letter without dropping it? The same thing as "drop caps", without/but_not_for dropping it? You could cal it "bigger caps", or something like it...
