"Always" work from the View Map... as Views become Drawings that appear on Layouts. The entry in the Project Map has no view info associated with it (layer combo, scale, reno status etc) and will just appear, while working, with whatever your last settings were.
A Project Map entry (e.g., section) does not have a View in the View Map until you create one (or more). A View in the View Map does not have a Drawing associated with it (until you create one).
In particular, a single Project Map entry (e.g., Section) can have many View Map entries, each of which represents a different way of seeing/viewing the information. For example, for the same section, you could have a structural view, a schematic view, you might have graphics over-rides applied, it might show a demolition view with its associated dimensions, or a new construction view, and/or different scales.
