Issue: In a one column text frame with a side head, I'd like to align an anchored frame at the top of (and within!) the column
Everything works as expected:
Now change the Anchoring Position of the frame to At Top of Column:
The frame is placed at the top. That's fine.
But the frame spans the column and the side head. That's not what I want and, btw, not what I expected.
Now change the Number of Columns to 2:
Again, everything works as expected: The frame is at the top of the column and it is within the column only.

How do I get it in FM?
That looks like a bug to me, probably an old one as it affects previous versions of FrameMaker too. The same behaviour is true for placement at the bottom of a single column.
I tried to fool FrameMaker it by using two columns and setting all paragraphs to Across All Columns, but that just prevents the placement of the anchored frame at the top of the column!
Sorry I can't offer any simple workaround.
I've added the issue to the bug list.
