I'm not even sure I understand the description of the text inset
behavior. :-} But maybe I can help with the side head setting issue.
The Room for Side Heads check box is in the Customize Text Frame dialog
box, but it's not actually a text frame property. It's a _flow_
property; notice in the dialog, it's part of the Flow settings on the
Your main flow (body pages) is probably set to Flow Tag A. If you turn
on Room for Side Heads for any frame with a given flow tag, it's on for
_all_ frames with that flow tag (I'm not sure how FM behaves regarding
frames with no flow tag).
So take a look at the flow tags for a few of the problematic text
frames. That might shed some light on what's happening.
