I need to put a box around text and make the first letter larger than
the rest.

I have attached a screenshot of what needs to be done in Writer (the
original was in Word). I have looked and looked but I cannot seem to
find how to do that in Writer.

Please help.


Use the frame that has been suggested. Then under Format-> Paragraph select the Drop Cap tab to set the first character to what ever size you like. It would be best to create a style for the paragraphs that you wish to use in this fashion and use it to set the style instead of the direct formatting as you can make changes to all paragraphs at one time if the need be.
