Bug Description

Issue #1:
In the Symbol or Footprint table editor you try to select a row to manipulate, you have to click the number, but that isn't very intuitive, I would have expected that I could click in any column related to the specific row, and the row would be selected.

Issue #2:
When a row has been selected, and I then remove it, the line is removed as expected, and as a result the next row below is selected, but the row is not highlighted, or any thing else for that matter, but you can still manipulate the unhighlighted line.

Issue #3:
If you choose to move a row either up or down, you loose the highlighting, but your row is still active (probably related to #2)

Issue #4:
When you move a row up or down, you can not highlight a new row, by clicking the number as detailed in #1, until after you have clicked in some other randomly selected column, but the row still gets selected, and can be manipulated.
