Isn't 6) exactly the desired outcome after disabling the Heading rows repeat?
I don't understand the relation of the summary to the description. Is "menubar" the menu or toolbar?

No. You should be able to turn this on and off as you like, just like you can do so in the Table > Table Properties > Text Flow > Repeat Heading. If you leave out step 5, it wont be disabled in step 6.

Yes menubar is the correct word for the bar at the top which contains the menu.

Ok it seems I wasn't parsing correctly. It seems by "disabled" you mean it is somehow greyed out or something, unable to change the state at all.
Well, I'm not seeing this in the menu or table properties so leaving as unco.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice 
(5.1.6 or 5.2.3  https://www.libreoffice.org/download/

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and 
your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
