Wrongly placed caption

I'm using LO V6.2.2.2 (x64) to prepare documents which use graphics
generated in LO Draw.  The graphics are annotated screenshots taken with
Snagit which is then grouped and copied into the doccuments.  The
graphics have a caption figure ...... which is placed below the image. 
See the example graphic below.

In two recent  documents I've created, everything has worked fine to
begin with. Then, when a new grapic is placed in the document and the
caption is entered for the graphic it appears above and partly behind
the grahic and the frame containing the graphic and caption is extended
for considerable number of lines below the grahic.  If I delete the
graphic, it is removed, the title page of the document is shown on the
screen and I have to scroll through the document to get to where I was
editing.

Has anyone else come across this?  Is it a bug or am I doing something
wrong? (Note: I've been using LO for many years without any problems.)

Any help and/or advice on this will be much appreciated.

The default was changed from below the image, to above the image.

When you write the caption, go to the bottom of the box, and change
"above" to "below".

If you're feeling very brave, and don't mind destroying your LibO
configuration files, you can go into the expert menu, and configure
"below" to be the default.  (I don't recommend exploring the exert menu,
unless you are willing to destroy your entire LibO configuration setup.)
