OK, that file when exported to pdf and viewed in Okular showed a document with a red column on the left and the remaining space filled with a slight gradient. See http://members.pcug.org.au/~rcook/images/attatchment.pdf.png
Looking at the properties of the two text boxes, I note that the Y position and height are different, so wonder if that contributes to your view.
