How does one determine whether a file is "online only" or "local"? In the app, I get the following - I would expect a checkmark or something next to the "Local" or "Online only" choice.Screen Shot 2019-11-13 at 10.37.27 AM.png

Hello @John M.51 - welcome to our Community!

To be honest, there should be an icon next to both of those options. Have you rebooted your computer since you first noticed this John?

If you do and this persists, please send me the app's exact status as shown within your menu bar so I can have a better look into this. 

Thanks so much!

Thanks for your reply.

My primary problem seemed to be on my laptop - but now I am seeing the checkmark as expected (on either "local" or "online only"), AND I see an icon in the finder.

I think my laptop may have been "re-synching" after a sytem upgrade, and now all is well.
