Let me see if I get the terminology correct here - I usually mess this up.
You have a VIEW POINT in the PROJECT MAP - i.e. plan, section, elevation, etc.
You then save VIEWS of these VIEW POINTS in the VIEW MAP.
These VIEWS have settings for layer combination, scale, pen set, graphic override, renovation filter, etc.
These settings are saved when you create the VIEW but can be changed any time afterwards by changing them in the VIEW SETTINGS or by changing the actual layer combination, graphic override, reno filter, etc.
You now place these VIEWS on the layout pages as DRAWINGS.
When you OPEN SOURCE VIEW of the DRAWINGS you will see the VIEW with the settings that it has been saved with. It should appear exactly as it does in the layout.
This will be the same if you open the VIEW from the VIEW MAP - it will open with all of the settings it was saved with.
If you open a VIEW POINT in the PROJECT MAP, you manually control all of the settings for what you want to see, so it may appear different to the actual VIEW (DRAWING) you are using in the layouts.
I hope this makes some sense.
