Adding a new row in "full table edit mode" will revert the editing to by row edit.

To reproduce:
1. Click on "full table" edit button
2. Click on "+" arrow to add a new row

The entire table is no longer editable.

This is really annoying when you want to add several rows. Say you have a table you want to add four new rows to, In order to do so, the minimum amount of click you would need is 8. the initial click to edit, and then you would have to click "+" 4 times, ignoring that the table reverted to by edit, and then click save. Then you hit the "full table" edit to make the needed changes, and then click save. If you wanted to add data each time, it would be 3 click per row, (edit, "+", save), totaling up to 12 clicks! Which is not very user friendly. It would be better to mimic the behavior of the previous EdtTablePlugin, and leave the table in edit mode when you add the row, which would require only 6 clicks ( edit, add *4, save). While its true that a user can just edit the raw text of the topic to add the rows, but that defeats the purpose of a editable table.
