Understand. Then this is for bug report as a Feature request like you 
said at first. ;-)

You could also fine tune using the tabs. But it'd be somewhat tricky 
unless you use large type size. Also, unless you use a font with a 
regular width throughout, you're going to have to adjust each paragraph 
to each initial letter (capital I is narrower than capital M, etc.). 
Another way to achieve this would require a transparent and no runaround 
text frame for the initial letter which you'd position outside the main 
text frame... Like a hanging drop cap for instance. It really depends on 
what exactly you want to achieve.

HTH. Does it?
