Dynamic lights have a short range to keep performance acceptable.

Finally, adjusting the angle using the circle tool in the top-right or by using the "point at" tool will only adjust the cone model, the angle keyvalue must be set manually to adjust the spot world light.

But you can change that in hammer! Just change the settings until you get what you want

If you're not sure which way the light is directed (as the spotlight in hammer sometimes lie), just put it in the middle of a small square room with different wall textures
