2019-02-15 13:07:27 +0100 marked best answer Table Contents Style Showing as wrong Font

LO 6.1.5 x64, Win 7 Pro x64.

In a new Writer document I select Menu > Table > Insert table.

The table is inserted (with a caption which takes the whole of the first page - the table is pushed on to the second page ?!).

Anywhere within the new table I click or tab, the Styles sidebar (and the Style dropdown on the toolbar) show that I am using style Table Contents (which is correct), whose font is defined as Verdana Regular 12pt.

But the table contents (and the Font dropdown on the toolbar) show Liberation Serif.

Why?
