I have a single word in a line to which I am applying a different font, called “Paint Drops”. The Paint Drops font has extrusions which fall below the letters, as if they were dripping. Writer seems to aligning the vertical center of the characters as if the drips were a part of the letters, so that when it it the same size as adjacent text, both the top and the bottom of the characters are well above the top and bottom of the text around it. I want to position this word so that the text aligns, with the drips extending below the line.
The character menu has a radio button “Raise/lower by”. However it is greyed out if vertical position is set to standard, and if subscript or superscript is chosen and text size adjusted to offset the automatic shrinking, the text can not be raised or lowered enough to center it.
Is there a way to turn raise/lower on with standard positioning? Or some other way to raise or lower a single word?
