When you are working on a project utilising Worksets, don’t use the Revit Start-up splash screen to access your user file or the recent file list in the Revit Application button. The user file should be re-created from the Central file at least every day. I personally recreate my User file every time I open the model.
Access your model by selecting ‘OPEN’ and then find the Central model on the server. This will create a new local file for you.
While it isn’t the end of the world if you access you user file from the start screen, it is just good work practice not to. The main reason is that User files contain extra pieces of information and over time this can increase your user file size which will slow your model down (on a large project this time can quickly add up!). Creating a fresh user file will bring your user file size back to the Central file size.
So when you are accessing your project please remember to go to the Central file location….
…..and remember, make sure the ‘Create New Local’ is ticked so that you aren’t working in the central model….
