Hi Syed, IIRC this is normal and is to do with how FM handles header rows on multiple page tables. I had the same problem with 5.5.1 and found that FM replicates the header row from the first page an so they are not actually text as such. It is for this reason that anything in them is not editable or clickable. That is, the header row content is only displayed on subsequent pages.
Adding text frames on them may work but in the end I had to add links in Acrobat after the pdf had been generated.
