Changing options for review does not seem to change behaviour of the deck

I changed the options for the number of cards to review each day to 10 (for the default option).

When I went to a deck I found that it still operated under the maximum review of 100 rather than the new limit of 10. I checked the deck did have the new default option by clicking on options etc. It did.

I then closed Anki and re-opened it to try again, thinking that might change the maximum review. No.

Am I misunderstanding 'review'? Or do I have to do something else to change how many cards can be reviewed each day?

    Perhaps you were looking at learning cards, which are not included in the review limit.

    Damien - my decks don't seem to work like that - but on re-testing it is
    not that they revert to Basic (sorry about that - I made a judgement based
    on one instance!!). It is that the card type for the first deck I open and
    add a card to, stays as the card type for any other deck I might want to
    add to.

    For example: If I open a Management Concepts deck (which is blue) with the
    card type 'Management Basic Audio', and I add to that, that is fine. If I
    next open a Marketing deck, which is pink with card type 'Marketing Basic
    Audio' and I click 'add' to add a card to that deck, then the type button
    has the name of the card type for the PREVIOUS DECK not the card type for
    Marketing which is the present deck. I think it used to always show the
    card type for the deck but now it doesn't do that for me anyway!!

    Here's a 1.30 minute screen cast showing you what I mean (in case the above
    explanation is not clear):

    By the way - sorry this is 'private' - I meant it to be part of the normal
    public discussion!!
