Number of new cards resetting to 1

I keep resetting it to 30 or 50 new cards a day for the parent deck but once I sync it and/or close the app and re-open, the number of new cards resets to 1. I am not sure if this is related, but I added the “Deadline” add-on yesterday. When I click on “Process deadlines”, I need to be studying a lot more than 1 new card per day. Not sure how to work around this.
