Cant view text box in normal layout within MS Word

HI

I have received an MS Word Doc via email. When I view the document in normal layout I can't see the header which is embedded in a text box. If I switch to print layout I can see the header. My question is; can I view the header within the normal view layout?

Thanks

Normal view is primarily for proof-reading.  No objects can be viewed in normal view, that's where print layout comes in.
