Anchor Links shift under the section anchor'd


We are running into an issue that when we use anchor links on a page, the page will bring you down to section you click, but its goes further down than the start of the anchor link.  

Does anyone know if there is a way to adjust where it shifts you to on the page?  Ideally we would have show the header and the content to the side of it but in all cases, users need to scroll up a little to view the start of the content.

Do you get the same behavior when the content is outside of a table?  I am wondering if it has something to do with the table and might be a bug.

I do but i found out the users was not using the Anchor macro (duh) instead they were just using the heading Link in the URL.  Once we updated to the anchor macro and adjusted the table, it worked as intended.
