While hovering a table, a highlighted "+" sign should appear to add columns/rows to tables easily, just like in MS Office 2016.
The use case is that people do not know how to deal with the context menu, or are just too lazy to right-click, and are provided with a fancy input. LibreOffice users are smarter, I guess.
The idea is not bad but has follow-ups for other functions. You could also request the floating paste box, for example. It feels dirty to copycat Microsoft.
Closing this ticket as WONTFIX since no one objected my comment 1. The proposal is to go the Microsoft way, which is not bad but we have other means to achieve the functionality.
