I have the multiband raster of time-series data and created a layout with multiple map items. I set the the particular raster band for a particular map item and Lock layers. enter image description here

However, when I export the layout, the raster bands are not preserved in the map items. All maps show only the most recent raster band.

Is there some workaround, how to lock a particular band from multiband raster layer for the map item? Or is it necessary to work with separate layers only?

Lock layers only locks the particular layers that are visible in the map frame, not how they are styled.

After you have selected the band to visualise, check also the option Lock styles for layers

  • Thanks @Matt, how obvious. So, band selection is driven by Layer Style. It's clear now.

  • No problem. It's not obvious until you know!
