Problem with drop cap \letterine.

Hi, I am trying to use drop cap in Latex-Texmaker using the Letterine command but the cap letter is not aligned within the paragraph

enter image description here

, as you can see it is sitting alone outside the paragraph. I think I am missing something there, any suggestions?

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{lettrine}

\begin{document}

\Letterine{F}{ibre} metal laminates....

\end{document}
  • That's strange, no \Lettrine command exists. You must have defined it somewhere and not telling us about it. Can you provide the community with a complete, minimal example that replicates the problem – Werner Jul 28 '16 at 16:36
  • Firstly, the command is \lettrine and not \Letterine. As written your example does not compile. After fixing that error, the code compiles with the expected output with the top of F lined up with the paragraph. – Willie Wong Jul 28 '16 at 16:37
  • Looking at your sample output, do you perhaps have loaded \usepackage[doublespacing]{setspace}? The line gap between the first two lines are unnaturally large. In any case, this is discussed also tex.stackexchange.com/questions/219023/… try loading \usepackage{lmodern} which should fix the font scaling issue. – Willie Wong Jul 28 '16 at 16:43

The command is \lettrine. See below MWE:

\documentclass{report}

\usepackage{lettrine}

\begin{document}

\lettrine[findent=2pt,nindent=0pt]{F}{ibre} metal laminates test test
test test test test test test
test test test test test test
test test test test test test
test test test test test test

\end{document}

Output:
