Default Strange - Header Takes over entire page (body)

Where are you pasting the table in from? If it was anchored to the header in
the source, it might be anchored to the header in the target, though I doubt
that would be the case unless you had the header open for editing. Is it
really part of the header (editable only if you open the header pane) or
just floating in the header area?

Hi -
I've seen posts on this, but no answer - they all end with "send me a
snippet" but the result isn't posted.

I have a document we're using for invoices. *In the header, we have a
field that will have the type of invoice.
The body is a large table, to keep everything neat.

When I put the table in, it mysteriously becomes part of the header.

I've tried a new document, tried without anything in the actual
header, yet as soon as I paste the table in, and view Header/Footer ,
the table is in the header.

HELP!! *This is SO very frustrating!
Thanks -

Thanks, Suzanne. This is interesting.
I can edit the table OUTside of the header - so maybe it is just
floating in the header area (though I don't really know what that
means). When I start (like if I copy and try to make a new document)
the header starts small, but once I copy the table in, it grows. I
didn't create this doc - I am editing it.

I don't know what "anchor" means. But I do see a little "+" that,
though challenging, I can grab and move the entire table.

Does this help unravel the mystery?

thanks -
