I played around with position of the windows on pages but I got continuing error messages.

At last I found the cause of the error.
Drill through pages under Pages and Windows form section.
Click on the page "Page" you get error messages about. Switch to Output Options tab on the right screen.
There is Print Attributes section where you can select Portrait Format or Landscape Format. Since the invoice output layout is landscape, I tried to choose it since portrait format was selected. When I choose landscape format, the below error message "PAGE FORMAT landscape format not possible"

"PAGE FORMAT landscape format not possible" message lead me to the solution of "Window MAIN does not fit onto page PAGE (height)" error messages on SAP Smartform.
Although the width and height information was defined, the portrait format was not defined for the related Page Format that I selected.
