Default Trouble fomatting a frame - top of letter cut off in frame - line spacing


Hi. I'm using Word 2010 and have a document with several frame sidebars. The trouble I'm having is that the top of the top letter in the frame is being cut off. This is difficult to explain - I attach a document with just one frame in and (hopefully) you can see that the top of the S is chopped off. I thought it might just be chopped off on the screen but having printed it it is chopped off there too. I've tried moving the frame down 0.1 cm but it is still getting chopped off. Any ideas what I need to change to get the top of the S? Thanks!

The first S is upper case. I suspect this is an artifact of the font being used. If you make the last one upper case, it has the same problem.

Thanks Charles. It seems to work if I use all small caps. Strikes me an odd way to do it but as I say it seems to work...

The artefact is a function of the line spacing. Change the line spacing from 22 to 24 point and you will see the whole character, without noticably affecting the rest.

Ah - line spacing - I think I've tried changing just about everything else! Many thanks Graham.
