Default Formatting a Subform

When building a form with a subform, I open the subform in a separate window, edit its format and close the window.

Then, when I open the parent form, the subform appears in a sort of datasheet view, not the view I built in the edit window.
The subform shows a single row, with the field sequence apparently like the underlying query. The data is correct, containing the record that links to the main form record. But it's not presented the way I wanted it. I haven't found a way around this.

I click on Form View, and get the same view.
