Dropword III – the InDesign script for creating whole-word dropcaps (essential for traditional Hebrew typography) has been updated to version 3.5.3.

  • Occasionally, Dropword did not correctly create a gap under the first word of the paragraph. This occurred when the paragraph contained a tab setting that extended beyond the outer bounds of the paragraph. This has now been fixed.
  • Owing to an InDesign bug, if a dropword was immediately followed by a footnote reference, that paragraph would be skipped. I was able to find a method to work around this bug, so Dropword III now works as expected even in this case.

This is a free upgrade. As usual, the latest version of all Id-Extras.com add-ons that you have purchased can be downloaded here: https://www.id-extras.com/shopping-cart/my-account/

I hope you find these bug fixes useful!
