How to stop the blue box "Footer (Default Page Style)" from displaying on every page and hiding the text underneath it

On Writer text documents with a footer, the blue drop-down style box displays all the time and one can’t see to edit the text underneath it.
There must be a way to get it to display for only one or two seconds, or to turn it off, but I haven’t been able to find out how.


If it is helpful please consider to click the check mark (:heavy_check_mark:) next to the answer. Thanks in advance …


to disable the header/footer menu deactivate option Insert -> Header and Footer -> [ ] Use header/footer menu

Hope that helps.
