can't anchor image in header

I try to place an image in a header by anchoring it to the page (inside the header). However, when I save and open the file again, the image has moved down from the header. It is no longer anchored to the page but rather anchored to characters.

Why is this happening and how can I successfully do this simple task?

Thank you.

Hi - As I do not reproduce on my platform with .odt I suppose you save the document in a format other than .odt?

Yes, you are right. I have been saving it as docx.

When you anchor something to page, you anchor it to one specific location in the file, but the header content will be displayed on a large number of pages, so that won't work. As wrote, you have to anchor to paragraph, or in some cases to character, dependent on the kind of image.

What is a bit surprising is that this happens even when the header is a first page header. Anyway, you and Charlie certainly know the solution, so thank you.

That doesn't matter. You can use the First Page style for the first page of the chapters of a book, and then you still have many pages with that style.
