Reports Builder6i was not one of Oracle's best products.  It sometimes supports the actions you would expect in a GUI tool: drag and drop, copy and paste, etc.  But, in many cases Reports6i either doesn't support what you want to do, or it gets confused (or corrupted).

My recommendation when working in Reports6i is to do a "Save as" freqently when you are making changes in it, especially when those changes are to the layout.  Change the file name slightly each time (maybe by adding a sequential number to the end of the file name).  That way, when you encounter a problem, at least you don't lose a whole series of changes.  You should be able then to go back to a version you had saved just a few minutes earlier, and carefully try the changes again, maybe just one at a time in between "Save as" steps.

Once a report though has lost something, it can be very difficult or impossible to get it back.  Your best option may be to go back to the original one you had copied and try making your changes again, but now doing a "Save as" after each small layout change or two.
