Manage 2013 - Appending Revit Models that were built with shared coordinates

I was really excited about the abilty to open up Revit files in Navisworks. I am having a problem with this feature. When i append models, they are not coming in to the correct location. In Revit, shared coordinates were used. I can export from Revit to an NWC and append in Navis and everything comes in fine. I just can't get the seperate Revit models to line up in Navisworks. Any ideas?

Have you checked for Options>File Readers>Revit settings? There is an option in there for Coordinates that I believe is defaulted to "Project Internal". I changed mine to "Shared". Hope this helps.
