Table Columns Select

Tested in Linux Mint 19.1; LibreOffice 6.x.x
Modul: writer

This is very old problem.

-- Open new document
-- Table - Insert Table... - Insert
-- Now try, select the columns with mouse...
-- ...the header function also turns on

This is very confusing.

Proposal: The Header-Footer function let it be two clicks and not one.

I confirm it with

Version: (x64)
Build ID: 2f2f4767089512c34514896bc37823f9310e9dd4
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: GL; VCL: win;

Additional information:
If you first click into the page area above the table and turn on the header function, it disappears, if you select table.

Still present in

Version: (x64) / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: a529a4fab45b75fefc5b6226684193eb000654f6
CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0 Build 19043; UI render: Skia/Raster; VCL: win
Locale: de-DE (de_DE); UI: en-GB
Calc: CL

For me the expected result is: If cursor changes to an arrow, footer isn't enabled by clicking.
