In LO the general behavior of the dialogs that those dialog items which does not make sense to change in the actual dialog config, those items are disabled.
For example check border tap page on Format Cells dialog (Format -> Cells). There the shadow properties (distance, color) can not be changed until the user not select a shadow type first.
LO should behave similar on Manage Condition Formatting dialog and disable Edit and Remove buttons when nothing is selected (there is no item in the list), since in this case these buttons do nothing.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Calc
2. Open Fomat -> Conditional -> Manage..
3. Check the dialog items's state
The conditional formats list is empty, but the Edit and Remove items are still enable, however they does nothing when pushed.
Edit and Remove button should be disabled when no item is selected.
