AFAIK, it's a feature. If you want the table toolbar to not disturb
your work space, when it just drag it and anchor it below the text
area: I always put there all the contextual toolbars.
Another option is to close forever that toolbar (unchecking it when it
appears) and create a custom one (Tools > Customize > Toolbars tab)
with the buttons you need: custom toolbars are not contextual.

Hi Rick,

The fact that the table tool bar opens when I am in a table, but
disappears whenever I move to surrounding parts of the page makes the
entire page jump up and down in a most disturbing manner. I use tables a
lot and would be very happy if I could keep the table toolbar open all
the time. I have tried all sorts of settings, but nothing I have tried

Please! Can someone suggest how the table toolbar could be kept open on
a permanent basis?

I tried a lot, but found no possibility to keep open the table toolbar
permanently. For me it's the situation is the same as you described (also
for former versions of OO.o).

Normally, if I want to keep a toolbar permanently open, I choose it from the
View -> Toolbars menu. Of course, it's possible to choose "Table" here. Then
the table toolbar is open while working.
But: in that moment I quit doing anything in/with a table the table toolbar
closed automatically.
The same happens with the "Bullets and Numbering" toolbar.
Obviously the program distinguished not between having opened the toolbar
automatically or manually.

But I'm not sure, whether it's a bug or a feature ...
Could anyone here says something more about?
