The plan is not sent as a live view.  Live view is for 3D images and elevations.

Thank you.  I was having problems with my plan views changing when I was trying to show wall framing and roof framing in plan views on a different page. I’ll have to look at my layer management. That’s why I thought live view and updates were involved in layout.

Just to clarify, plan views are technically always "live".  Any changes made to the model or the layers that are displayed will show up in the layout view.

 

It sounds like the problem you are having is related to layer sets and probably related to saved plan views.  Check out this post for more info:
