    Can't Save?

    I have a file that was originally a local with a central associated with it. I have done a detach from central because I don't need a central file and all is well except the option to Save is not available. I can do a Save As to the same file name but no dice on a straight Save. What's up with that?

    Corrent me if I am wrong but once worksharing is enabled there is no way to disable it.
    I think Revit wants you to make a new central file out of the detached local file. If you save it to a new location or as a new name it will let you make a new create a new central (unassociated from the old), from which you can create a new local, which you should be able to work in and save.

    Unless you are in 2012. In 2012 I think there is a new feature which will allow you to disable worksharing.

      When you detach, does that not mean that you are now working in the central file? So if you are in the central file you would not have a save, only a SWC...?

        thanks all. I didn't realize that one couldn't dump work sharing if it wasn't needed. So I'm stuck with working in a local and SWC.

          In Revit 2012 you can now disable worksharing :beer:

            unfortunately all of my current projects are stuck in 2011. Until Architects and GCs get caught up I won't be able to create 2012 content. Usually takes about 6 months of lag time to get there So, I haven't even bothered to download 2012 yet

              Dave, how much documentation work have you done so far?

                If it is just you, why not just work in the central file? There is no reason to make a local file. When I save down like you have done and want to stop using worksharing I just work directly in the central and call it good...

                    yep, it's just me. And, I don't like to work in a central file because every time I open one I forget to uncheck Create New Local. Now that I know that, at least in 2011, that I can't undo work sharing I'll just work in a local file to start with. I use the Architectural and Structural models as links into my model and their work sharing doesn't affect what I'm doing.
