[Libreoffice-ux-advise] Header and Footers separators design

Hi Cedric, all!
Just noticed a (known?) bug in the headers/footers:
* Create a new document
* Wait for the headers/footers indicators (by mouse hovering)
* Click on the "+" to add a header
* Expected result: Header appears, Undo is possible
* Current result: Header appears, Unto is not possible (there is
nothing in the undo stack)
I think its important to fix that, since this might be the very first
contact with the new headers/footers.
Grrr, just checked with an older version of LibreOffice (3.3.2) - if I
add a header/footer, then not undo item is created as well. That's bad,
but noticing that was not so easy.
Do you want a Bugzilla issue?
Have a nice day!
