Is it still true that you cannot go back to a "non shared"/"basic"/ model once a project has been used as a central??

Trying to resolve random worksets and sharing and saving issues with a central model I recieved from another architect.  It's just me using this file now and I have no need for worksets and central model syncing.

 

Quoting JAMESHGRIMES from 2010-08-27 10:23:42

"Once a project has been set to workshared it will always be workshared. The solution is to do as you have done but set the save to save as new central file. This will still be a workshared file but it can reside as a seperate central."

James was wrong.

Open the project detached and you will be given the option of discarding worksets.

Opening detached is the way to get the option to discard worksets.  Then you just save it .... it is no longer a central.

Thanks that worked, but gave me a few glitches! with stuff I created after recieving the model. So for now yes Converting the central model to a Basic single user model worked, but due to the glitches I have to keep it as a central, untill I can investigate why it is deleteing some work I did.

 

Thanks WWHub!
