Is there any way when I have a local file open to look and find the path to the central file?  I hope this makes sense.

Thanks,

AAron

now that you mention it, I don't think there is.  But if you've "lost" the central, you can always use a local file, save-as-->options-->make this file a central file after save, and move forward with that in a more memorable directory. 

 

Or, if you're afraid that people in your office are working on separate centrals, be they backups or whatever, the central file's file name is saved as the prefix to the local file's name.  Unique or consistent naming for your central should help any confusion moving forward.

On the Manage tab, under Manage Project, click Manage Links; click on the Revit tab and you will see the central model's path.

When you click on the save to central, the path should be shown.

I'm not sure what version you're working in but under the Collaborate tab, draw down the Syncronize with Central to select the Syncronize and Modify Settings option. Your Central File Location is highlighted at the top.

Thanks for all the help.  It solved the problem at the time.  Now my problem is the central file is right where it should be but it is not being recognized?

Any suggestions for this one?  When I sync it says "central file does not exist at the path you provided.  The central file has been deleted or moved."  I have searched and it is right where is says it is?

 

Thanks,

AAron
