Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Insert a new table with one col and one row in a new composer document 2. enter one newline in the table cell (for any reason this is needed to get an list into an table, but this would be another bug...) 3. Now click on one of the "create list" buttons on the edit-toolbar in composer 4. Remove the newline created in Step 2 that the only thin in the table is the one list item Actual Results: If you now right click on the table somewhere, then you only have "list properties" in the context menu. You can't access the table properties. Expected Results: If you right click on the table, then the table preferences should be accessible
> If you now right click on the table somewhere, then you only have "list properties" in the context menu. That's because the current element in "writing mode" in the DOM tree is the list. The trick for the user is to be able to pass the "writing mode" status to the element chosen by the user. Try this: 1- View/Show-Hide/Status Bar should be checked 2- Right-click in the status bar the element's node which you want to access the properties 3- Choose Advanced Properties or 2- Click in the status bar the element's node which you want to access the properties: the node containment hierarchy gets truncated on the status bar 3- then right-click anywhere in the table cell and the properties of the element you chose in step 2 will be shown in the list of commands of the context-menu All this works while in HTML Tags editing mode and in Normal editing mode.

Also working for me is (after step 4): a1- Left click anywhere in the table; a2- Table/Table Properties... brings up the Table Properties... dialog box b1- Left click anywhere in the table; b2- Table/Select -> Table (The table gets selected/highlighted) b3- Right-click anywhere in the table and the Table Properties... menuitem is in the contextmenu Again, the important matter is to first select correctly the table.

Manuel, we have not heard from you regarding alternate methods to select a table. I'm resolving this as WORKSFORME
