  10. Okay, but this is not genuinely a “worksharing with LT” in the simultaneous-work sense. It’s more for if an LT user had to temporarily borrow a workshared model and then give it back. Any work done by the full Revit user while the LT user is working would be lost when the LT user returns their file and overwrites the Central model. Right?

    • Chris, you are correct. Revit LT does not have the ability to Workshare like full-Revit. So, the full-Revit users would need to sit idle while the LT user did their work in the central-file. It is not “Worksharing” in the classical sense, it’s very similar to a full-Revit user taking a workshared file home. In Revit vernacular, we call it “Working at Risk.” The difference here is, Revit LT creates a Workset for the LT user to work in. Traditional “Working at Risk” would require the individual to take ownership of a Workset prior to taking the project file on the road.
