Is there any way to drop cap the first letter of a paragraph like you can in InDesign?

Thanks

With the Text tool, highlight only the first letter of the paragraph. From the Character Palette, resize the letter appropriately and then set a negative baseline for the letter. In the Paragraph Palette, indent the paragraph as needed and set a negative first line.

No apologies necessary. How can you know if you don't know?

Make your drop cap. Put a text wrap around it. Type your body copy. Arrange the two elements so your text wraps around the drop cap.

Larry beat me with an alternative method. His works well if your drop cap is "unadorned." If you want to prettify it in any way, try the text wrap method.
