I am currently working on an invoice report which may or may not span across multiple pages. I have a header which I have setup to only be displayed on the first page, and a footer which I have setup to only be displayed on the last page. The problem is,
the hidden header/footer reserves unwanted whitespace and messes up the report layout (see the screenshot). The black areas represent space that is reserved by the header/footer. There must be a simple way to remove this unwanted space. Please help.

For the Header is easy... just move the content to top of the Body...

Based on your scenario and screenshot, I get that you want to remove the while blank space besides first and last pages. By design, the page header and page footer is applied to all the pages, you can set its visibility, and however, you cannot remove the
space. So I would recommend you to put the content in the page header into report body, just like Stefan said. To the contents in report footer, reduce the height of the report footer as soon as possible. Thanks for your understanding.

I have searched high and low for a solution and have not yet found one. Can you explain what you mean by 'reduce the height of the report footer as soon as possible'?
To be clear, my issue is that I have a report footer, and it is about 4 inches in height. I have set it to print on the last page only (my report is always two pages) but it leaves 4 inches of white space on the first page. I have tried with a hidden rectangle
as well, but it also leaves the white space on the first page. Is there ANY WAY of stopping it from leaving white space on the first page?
