    Default Details Header is missing

    I am using Pentaho Report Designer 3.9.1.

    If I generate a report with the wizard I see the Details Header/Footer in the design pane. If I create a new report, I cannot work out how to show the Details Header/Footer.

    Oddly, if I right click on the Details Header in the structure pane and add a label, the label is listed and I can see it if I preview the report. Nonetheless, I see no label or any Details Header in the report design. I have carefully tried resizing the bands, it isn't simply hiding there.

    How can I show it?

    Screenshot of phantom label:

    In your screenshot, change from the 'Style' tab to the 'Attributes' tab with the 'Details Header' selected (instead of the label). Then, change 'hide-on-canvas' in the common section from false to true. This will make the details header become visible.
