Correct - there's no need to highlight the text - Oh, so much to learn with a 
new app  :-)

I don't have this problem with a 3 line drop - it's higher than InDesign 
though (just above the ascenders - the 'L' for example).  

...just tried it with a 5 line drop - it's the same as the 3 line

Ah, just had a thought, and tried it - 'The height is determined by the choice 
of font' - some higher, some lower than the ascenders.

Can you try it and see if it's the same with your fonts as well?
