For PDF reports, if I have an image in the HEADING and also HEADING text lines, I have to add some blank lines at the top of the heading ("8") to make sure that the text does not overlay the image. Am I missing something or shouldn't I expect the text to automatically be shifted down?
Also, How do I reduce the space between the last heading text line and the Column Tile line? Is this another of those never been solved issues?

Maybe the best thing IBI has given us to handle pdf formated reports is the composer.
Put your image in one spot, Heading text that does not change in a text field, and a report with no HEADING in another, and then move them around to increase / reduce the space between each to your hearts content.
At one client we even used this to position the "borders" when they did not like pdf's redition of same. I believe you had another topic in this forum on the bizarre behavior of borders in pdf. I spent several WEEKS getting those lines to make PERFECT corners, but it got done.

With the use of topgap and bottom gap you won't. Also, the <+0> symbol separates items in the header. Especially useful with variables in the header.

Well, not really what I wanted. I have seen others post their screen shot directly into the Focal Point post. At least you can see how the image assigned to the REPORT sits on the page with a header. And it depends on your position settings, you can move that image anywhere on the page. Hope it helps.
