Hei hei!

A double click sounds like an OK idea to me, if the header/footer is 
only created after text has been written to the header/footer (similar 
to newly created textboxes that disappear when no text was entered and 
cursor focus is put somewhere outside the textbox). At least it is 
better than the "mouse over popup thing" that got introduced.

By the way, are there any opinions on my last UI request (panel toggle 
enhancement)? I don't want to open a bug report for that ... or should I?

PS: Why do so many people (users _and_ developers) bring up Microsoft as 
their reasoning for how things should be handled/done? Good things 
should be considered independently from their source, but LibreOffice is 
_not_ a copy of Microsoft Office! A lot of people around me are working 
with MS Office daily and they still ask me how to do stuff. For those 
people, LibreOffice is no different than MS office! And power users 
should be able to figure out LibreOffice themselves ...
