In bug 101648 the functions New and Modify have been disabled (actually both are hidden) but ultimately we need a dialog. The design team made a proposal which is published az https://design.blog.documentfoundation.org/2015/12/13/style-your-tables/
Confirming of course.

As a workaround you can use the right-most tool button in the styles deck to either modify the selected table style or to create a new. However, those changes are stored only in the current document.
IMHO this bug should have a higher importance because table styles without the possibility to create or modify styles are useless in a large part. Also the table style feature was prominently promoted in the release notes.
Yousuf: noticing https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=0ba318b895c164750dc3c7bac6948b04b606f2b8, thought you might be interested in this one.
Moreover, I agree with Thomas, we should increase the importance here for the reasons he quoted.

Creating and updating table styles is currently possible through the entries in the sidebar, so the part that is missing is the modification of a table style in a dialog, which will likely await a GSoC student to take up using the proposal in comment 0.

No pb, I'm not expert too :-)

Ouch! It may take some time since this bugtracker is only considered as an enhancement/medium.
Removing the ML since UX input isn't requested.
