Tricky setting I came across recently.

If you change the sun position for a camera view in the view settings, it looks fine in the saved view. But when you place that saved view onto a layout, the sun setting defaults to the camera sun setting.

Did you redefine the saved view? (In the View Settings)

Did you modify the camera to current view settings? (Right click camera in Project Map)
By Tim Ball
Yes to both. That made the saved view correct, but when that saved view is placed on a layout it takes the sun location from the camera, not the view setting.
