I am not sure if it is a line but I see that there's a line above the detail section bar. You need to move it up first before you can adjust the detail section.

Sincerely,

Ed

If you place your mouse cursor in the ruler area to the left side of the report, you will see an arrow pointing to the right.  If you click and hold, then drag your mouse up or down (even across boundries), it will select all of the controls that fall in the area you selected.

This makes it easier to find those controls that are somewhat hidden.  Same concept works in the ruler at the top of the page.
