If Richard's solution doesn't fix, try verifying your Master Page frames have Sideheads off as well (all of 'em)
If that doesn't fix it, you might want to investigate your Text Inset files, though I doubt it's that deep. -Matt Sullivan GRAFIX Training, Inc.

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 lower right. 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. HTH! Richard Richard G.
