Just read the values in your input table, below your yellow cloud of first fig. This govern the design
DL limit, abs = 0.0254
Super DL+LL, abs = 0.0254 .....
It is in meter. (25.4mm)

You have to modify these values.

Another question, there is 3 types of deflection check in view/revise overwrite which are:
Ratio , Absolute and Both ,So which is more important Ratio or Absolute deflection ?
