Image Occlusion: Wrong card type and deck keep 'defaulting'

Hi! so whenever I open anki and add new cards, they are always defaulted to Image Occlusion type and in Deck A (when I want them to be Basic and in Deck B, for example).

It doesn’t matter if the last card I made before exiting the window was Basic and in Deck B. When I start anki up again and make new cards, it seems to always already be set to image occlusion and Deck A.

I have the latest version of anki (updated recently when I found that image occlusion was being buggy and kept going into the wrong decks). I am on desktop. Thank you!!
