My Local file opens everytime I try to open my Central model

My file is saved in BIM360 and is being worked on collaboratively. When I try and open it, through BIM360, it opens the local file rather than the central cloud model. I am SO lost as to how to get rid of my local file and access the file that is being collaborated on and shared on the cloud. ? Any help will be greatly appreciated.



This local file checkbox is meant to be greyed out...

Thank you for the question @Anonymous!


It sounds like you may be accessing the cloud model through the Desktop Connector:

If you are working with Revit 2019.1 or later, try going to the Revit Home, and accessing your cloud project/model there.


Note: The option to open cloud models was removed from the open dialog with version 2020 and later, in these versions the only option is to use Revit Home.
