Whenever my cursor hovers over the very bottom or top of a page in a text document, a button appears that says Header or Footer and (default) and a plus sign. It's very annoying, since I have no need for any headers or footers in my work presently. How can I make it stop?

I have tried unchecking the "Header on" and "Footer on" boxes under the settings in the Page Style window, but that didn't make it stop. Any advice?

Edit [2012-08-25]:

"Cedric Bosdonnat committed a patch related to this issue."

"Clicking on the header/footer area will show the separator."

That means, that only clicking on this area will show the separator, but no longer mouseover.

The patch will be available in LibreOffice 3.6.2.
