I added a third footnote. My result:

Click in margin next to last footnote on a page & drag down: whole footnote is selected
Click in margin next to a footnote (not the last one on a page): only first line is selected.

Comment 5 Dieter Praas 2019-06-03 18:45:35 UTC
Same result as in screencast.

Actual behaviour:
If the footnote is not the last footnote on the page, you can always mark the first line (click in margin and move down). If the footnote has only one line, you can't mark anything. No problem to mark the footnote, if it is the last footnote of a page.
