hi javier

when moving from 1.4 to 1.5 you will experience changes in the text

so, it is to be expected that the text flow will not be exactly the
(on top of it, you might have done the screenshot differently, or 1.5
does not have exactly the same font as 1.4)

but, as JLuc wrote, the misplacement of the drop cap is probably not
one of the changes you should expect.

i see a few ways to get along with it:

- you can share a sample document made with 1.4 and let us check what
  is happening .
  there might be a bug that needs to be reported.
- find out if there is a simple change you can do to get the drop cap
  to show correctly.
- if you're doing something "crazy" around the drop cap, don't do it
  and fix your workflow.

if a bug is found and fixed, you're best bet will probably be to take
an appimage that works for you and stick to it until 1.5.6 is released
(or until you found a newer appimage that also works for you and has
even more bugs fixed)
(there are currently rather big changes going on in 1.5.6 and some
commits might not work well. but generally speaking each newer version
is more stable and better than the previous one)
you might be able to do the same with the ppa, but, then, you cannot
test the new version before updating.
