Welcome to the forum!!!
If you are talking about when you create a detail view and select profile
then the next time you create a detail view it is back on circle that is
what it defaults to based on the standard you have setup in the Tools>Options> Document Properties.
If you are talking about you create a detail view and make it a profile and the next time you call it
up it is a circle then there would appear that maybe you need to check where you are saving it to
to make sure that you are calling up the exact same file.
